Access Bank Makes History With New Certification

July 25, 2022

Access Bank Plc. has received the MSECB Management System Certificate per the management system requirements in ISO 37301:2021 for its exemplary commitment to sustainable business continuity. With this new win, the institution becomes the first bank to achieve certification against this standard.

The certification recognises the bank for contributing to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 8, 16, and 11, which focus on promoting sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all. The SDGs also address creating peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, providing access to justice for all, building effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels, as well as making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, and resilient.

Celebrating this groundbreaking win, the Managing Director of Access Bank Plc., Roosevelt Ogbonna, said, “This certification demonstrates that the Bank’s Board of Directors and Management are committed to meeting internationally accepted standards in our global banking operations, particularly in the areas of sustainability and compliance. We believe that attaining this global standard would serve to deepen the trust that our stakeholders have in our institution as we continue to innovatively bridge worlds and connect customers to opportunities.”

This certificate proves that Access Bank’s management approach to sustainability is grounded in global best practices that aim to impact the triple bottom line of people, planet, and profit. As a leading financial institution, the institution continues to promote responsible environmental stewardship and socially responsible development by using a compliance management strategy that evolves to meet the demands of a dynamic and fast-changing world.

Access Bank’s latest certification is subject to satisfactory surveillance audits. Valid for three years, the accreditation will also be used as a management measuring tool to evaluate the bank’s business continuity policies and operations, sustainability practices and management compliance systems.
