Emirates NBD Champions Private Sector CSR Volunteering In UAE
(4 July 2017)

 

Emirates NBD has announced that its award-winning Exchanger programme has completed thirteen thousand seven hours of volunteering so far this year, thus coming close to completing its fifteen-thousand-hour target for 2017.

Grown 245 percent since its inception in 2015, the programme enables UAE-based Emirates NBD staff to exchange their time for social good. Performance numbers and impact of the initiative are audited by a third party assessor, Sustainable Square, a global CSR and Sustainability agency.

The bank has recently expanded the programme to its business partners, namely suppliers and vendors as well as relatives and friends of staff, in an effort to further volunteering among the UAE community.

During the Holy Month of Ramadan, more than 120 activities were organised for its volunteers to choose from, including Eid shopping trips and art classes with young students including those with disabilities, special Iftars with the elderly and several more.

The Exchanger programme is aligned to the #Year_of_Giving initiative that states volunteering as one of its three key pillars and the Community Development Authority's, CDA, Dubai Volunteering Program which manages volunteering services in the UAE. Volunteering is also a key focus of the bank’s recent premier partnership with Expo 2020 Dubai.

"As a homegrown institution committed to serving the UAE community, Emirates NBD was among the first private sector institutions to create a volunteering platform for employees," stated Shayne Nelson, Group Chief Executive Officer. "The commitment and passion we have seen from our Exchangers is outstanding, and we are proud to have exceeded 90 percent of our target hours for this year. The programme has become an integral element of the bank’s corporate culture and we hope to continue to encourage more partners in the private sector to join our efforts."
