Objective

World Environment Day is observed to raise awareness about environmental conservation and preservation through responsible practices, an ideology also shared by YES Bank since its inception.

Not only was YES Bank established on the principles of Responsible Banking, but has also managed to inculcate a strong sense of accountability through numerous socio-economic and environmental initiatives over the years, creating sustained value for its stakeholders. Through its World Environment Day initiative, YES Bank reiterated their commitment towards the same.

YES Bank proceeded to drop the curtains with the Green Future: Deposit, an initiative based on the genesis of environmental responsibility. As a part of the Green Future: Deposit initiative, YES Bank committed to raise INR 1,000 Crores and earmark equivalent proceeds towards Sustainable Development Goals aligned sectors.

For every customer who opens a Green Future: Deposit, YES Bank will plant a tree, offering their customers an innovative way to safeguard the planet’s interests while they earn interest.

Keeping the conversation going on World Environment Day, the brand pivoted their Green Good Deeds campaign, around the Beat Plastic Pollution theme, urging their customers to give up the use of plastic bags, while sharing everything the bank has been doing towards beating plastic pollution through an interesting video.
