Success Beyond Numbers
Our aim is to have a positive economic, social, environmental and cultural impact in the long term. We understand that, to do so, our role as a business needs to evolve and that we have a key role to play in creating prosperity for our communities.
As Mauritius’ longest standing financial institution, our aim is to help people and communities thrive today, and tomorrow. Our corporate sustainability framework, Success Beyond Numbers, is built around three pillars:
Based on these three pillars,
we have launched a number of key initiatives.
building on our resilience in production
The more diversified an economy is, the more it will be able to respond to crises. The Lokal Rebound study highlights the ways in which we could diversify Mauritius’ production fabric to cater for local needs and to ensure prosperity over time.
the fight against climate change is on
We have asked ourselves how we could reconcile the fight against climate change and local economic development. As a first step, we have sponsored the “Klima Neutral 2050” study.
reshaping our local economy
We believe in finding ways to stimulate new forms of local entrepreneurship and industries. We believe in transforming Mauritius and in making “lokal” beautiful.
we are helping
protect our fragile ecosystem

Getting our people involved
Our Social Leave programme encourages our people to take one paid leave day each year to volunteer to help non-profit organisations. Be it planting, painting, cleaning, sorting, or even keeping company, no action is ever too trivial. By giving our people the opportunity to support community partners, we can help do more good, together.
