Zanaco Plants a Million Trees Initiative: engaging young people in environmental conservation and climate action

Zanaco launched a tree planting initiative dubbed “Zanaco Plants a Million” project in May this year. The project aims to fulfil the bank’s commitment towards sustainable action. Through this initiative Zanaco aims to plant in excess of 1 million trees across Zambia. The trees will be planted at schools in areas where the bank has presence.

The objective of launching the initiative was to begin to deliver on the ESG strategy that the bank has included as a priority in its ambitions to be the number one bank in Zambia. Zanaco’ s Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) is an evaluation of the bank’s collective conscientiousness for social and environmental factors. The bank is therefore placing great importance on solutioning and participating in initiatives for environmental sustainability. Zanaco aims on playing a role of advocacy in order to preserve the environment for future generations.
