She said the N11 million won, brings the total money so far distributed under the initiative to N85 million.

“This is a journey we began about eight months ago and in all, we have given out N74 million before today and today we are giving out N11 million,’’ Ugochukwu said.

She added that the bank still had N20 million to give out to lucky customers at the next quarterly and mega draw, which would be the last draw under the initiative.

Ugochukwu said that the bank had started working on another initiative that would be made known to the public at the appropriate time.

She said that the bank identifies very strongly with the yearnings and aspirations of its customers and would continue to ensure efficient service delivery.

The executive director said that the bank had created many millionaires with the alert promo.

She, however, urged those who were not yet customers of the bank to embrace the promo to empower themselves.

“For those who are yet to be part of this success story and for those who are yet to become millionaires, we say to you not to hesitate in taking advantage of the opportunity,’’ Ugochukwu added.

She stated that the promotion had increased the bank’s deposits and financial inclusion with first time bankers using the opportunity to open accounts.

Ugochukwu said that the promo was instituted to enhance savings culture among its customers.

She stated that winners emerged from a transparent randomisation process which was approved by the bank’s control team and witnessed by officials from the Consumer Protection Council (CPC) and other regulators.

Aside from the cash prize won by customers, other consolations prizes ranging from refrigerators and generating sets had been won.

The six customers that emerged star winners for the promo draw across the country were Mrs Kafilat Dada, from Iyana Ipaja branch that won N2 million, Bonori Isa from Lokoja branch N2 million, and Olataiwo Idowu South/West N2 million, among others.

FIRSTBANK PARTNERS WITH PROPARCO ON CLIMATE PERFORMANCE

 

Advertisment

First Bank of Nigeria Limited, in partnership with Proparco, a Development Finance Institution is mainstreaming climate initiatives into its business operations and strategy. This is aimed at achieving a holistic integration of climate action on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions reduction through an articulated strategic pathway to position the Bank as an African Climate Bank.

The 130-year-old financial institution is currently implementing a mechanism to calculate its operational emissions across all its branches and offices. This includes calculating data on electricity use, diesel use, water consumption, waste management approach, fuel consumption, business travels, etcetera to determine the Bank’s emission baseline and innovative opportunities for operational emissions reduction. FirstBank is developing the required capabilities and competencies by investing in its employees and the right infrastructure for integrating climate action in the Bank.

In a two-day partnership strategy workshop sessions with IPC and Valoris, consultants from Austria engaged by Proparco in the climate mainstreaming project, FirstBank’s climate journey across all areas of implementation was reviewed to determine progress and empower strategic departments across the Bank’s operations, including: the Credit Risk teams; Human Capital Management & Development (HCMD); FirstAcademy, the Bank’s  learning institute; Corporate Banking; Personal Banking; SME Banking; Procurement; Branch Operations and General Services teams to deepen the understanding of climate risks in their processes.

The six workstreams for the implementation include: Identification of financed and avoided emissions to support reporting; supporting the measurement and analysis of operating emissions; integration of physical climate risk assessment; opportunity analysis; climate strategy and policy development; capacity building amongst staff to support strategy implementation.

Dr Martin Steindl, Managing Director, Valoris, Austria, said, “Amongst our various engagements with financial institutions on climate mainstreaming, FirstBank is the only organization that has been able to provide data both on the assets’ location of their portfolio and head offices of their clients. I am impressed with the progress we have collectively achieved.”

Reinforcing the Bank’s commitment to mainstreaming climate initiatives, the Ag. Chief Risk Officer, FirstBank, Patrick Akhidenor said ‘’FirstBank is intentional about redefining its climate footprint. We are identifying opportunities in climate finance to improve our portfolio and reduce the carbon emissions associated with our processes and operations. The Bank is executing a financed emissions calculation mechanism as well as creating climate finance opportunities, such as renewable energy and energy efficiency products for our customers.”

Nigeria has committed to reducing its GHG emissions to 20 percent by 2030 and net zero emissions by 2060. While this is ambitious, it sets the tone for businesses in Nigeria to at least support their GHG emissions reduction strategy with national plans and target. FirstBank is committed to achieving this goal and this is evident as the bank is a signatory to the Africa Business Leaders’ Climate Statement released in 2022 at COP 27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt by the Africa Business Leaders Coalition (ABLC).
