YES BANK partners with BASIX-IGS

For an Awareness Workshop on an Integrated Development Project for the Poor and the Environment in Indore City....

Indore, May 21, 2011: YES BANK, India’s new age private sector Bank organized a workshop in collaboration with BASIX-IGS, a research and development arm of the leading microfinance and livelihood institution, to discuss ideas for demonstrating quantitatively measured social and environmental outcomes in an Integrated Development Project in Indore. This project is aimed at delivering education, health, financial inclusion & literacy and vocational training services to the extremely poor communities like rag pickers. The project also provides environmental services for the benefit of the city.

The workshop that was held at YES BANK’s MG Road branch, a prime location in the city, was organized under the aegis of YES COMMUNITY, YES BANK’s Responsible Banking initiative. The theme of the workshop was “Do not Waste, Donate your Waste” (and in Hindi as “Kachra Daan, Karo Kalyaan”).

The event was aimed at people residing in residential societies around the Bank’s Indore branch with a focus on creating awareness about the initiative, and garnering community support to help expand the project. 

YES BANK has been committed to adding long term value to society and ‘social responsibility’ and ‘sustainability’ are integrated in its business focus through such Responsible Banking initiatives. The bank actively engages with various stakeholders in society, going beyond financial transactions to build strong community focused relationships. YES COMMUNITY is once such Responsible Banking initiative which endeavours to foster sustainability within the broader Indian context through its retail banking operations. This initiative is currently based on the theme of ‘Planet Earth’

The objective of YES COMMUNITY, therefore, is to build relations with the communities residing around the Bank’s retail branches by identifying and addressing social and environmental issues that are relevant to them. The Bank believes that such initiatives will not only help in fostering stronger relationships but also emphasize on nurturing the values of TRUST and TRANSPARENCY, two of the key pillars of the Bank, with all stakeholders, thereby adding long term value to society.

 

 

YES BANK currently has over 214 operational branches across 164 cities pan India.
