Double Honors For Commercial Bank

The Commercial Bank of Ceylon has won double honors for its commitment to the community from the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Asia Council, which has presented Sri Lanka’s largest private bank with two prestigious international awards.

The Bank received the award for ‘Support and Improvement in quality of Education’ and a Merit Certificate for ‘Concern for Health’ at the 4th Asia’s Best CSR Practices Awards at Pan Pacific, Singapore, on August 1, 2014 attended by a prestigious gathering of business leaders, Chief Marketing Officers and Human Resource professionals.

Preceded by the World Brand Congress at the same location, the Best CSR Practices Awards are Asia’s highest recognition of corporate organizations that have a significant and positive impact on the lives of people around them.

The awards presented to Commercial Bank recognize the tangible impact the Bank’s multifaceted community initiatives have had in the spheres of education and health in Sri Lanka.

These include the Bank’s nationally-scaled programme of donating computer laboratories to schools, a project to supplement English language classes in rural schools, the annual presentation of scholarships and laptops to undergraduates and the donation of medical equipment to hospitals around the country.

The Bank’s IT Education initiative is intended to enable younger generations and the country to face the future with confidence with world-class knowledge.

This programme shares synergy with the Bank’s enduring vision of being the most technologically-advanced, innovative and customer friendly financial services organization in Sri Lanka. By the first half of 2014, the 140 IT Labs donated by the Bank had benefitted an estimated 140,000 children.
