As part of the banks Corporate and Social Responsibility, BSP is always pleased to take lead in promoting and encouraging its Go Green message of safeguarding the environment we live in.

BSP has been active in promoting this message since the inception of its Go Green Clean-up Campaign, which started in 2010, and pulls together communities to clean up their streets, schools and around the communities where they live in.

The bank being a member to the Clean up the World Campaign and as an organisation; take part annually in observing Earth Hour, participates in World Earth Day activities and marks World Environment Day.

BSP Corporate Sponsorship Manager Amelia Minnopu when speaking about the GO Green campaign said, "BSP as a community oriented bank continues to challenge ourselves, our system and our partners to be more aware on practical ways to take care of our environment. We're continually seeking innovative new ways to decrease our environmental impact in the communities we operate wherever possible."

"Through our Go Green Initiative, we are able to reach across the Pacific, through fun and inclusive community activities that encourage and teach children about the importance of caring for and respecting the environment in which we live in," Miss Minnopu added.

The bank through its GO Green initiative in 2020 has also teamed up with Port Moresby Nature Park to support the inaugural event that bid to cultivate the importance of waste management and pollution - the "Trash to Treasure" Sculpture Festival. The bank supported the event as naming rights sponsors with K40, 000. This event is expected to take place next month.
