BSP Commemorates 2021 World Earth Day

Wednesday, April 21, 2021

Bank South Pacific Financial Group Limited, formerly known as Bank South Pacific Limited is commemorating the annual World Earth Day among billions around the world.

BSP through its GO GREEN initiative recognises the annual Earth Day by supporting innovative ideas that promote environmental resilience.

The bank joins the global community to show support for Earth Day with the goal to continuing its tradition with multiple projects that will look toward keeping our community sustainable and environmentally sound for the next 50 years.

BSP Corporate Sponsorship Manager Amelia Minnopu announced this saying, “Earth Day is an important moment to reflect on our relationship with nature and bring more awareness to environmental issues in our communities. With the 2021 Earth Day theme ‘Restore Our Earth’, we believe that environmental challenges cannot be resolved in a short period of time, however, simple planting of trees can improve quality of environment and Restore Our Earth.”

“The solutions we need are out there if we have the courage to embrace, listen, and do something different for our community. This year’s theme focuses on the natural processes, emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystem. In this way, the theme rejects the notion that mitigation or adaptation are the only ways to address the climate change. It is up to each and every one of us to Restore Our Earth not just because we care about the natural world, but because we live on it,’ added Ms Minnopu.

The banks participation is targeted at creating environmental friendly habits to make a difference for our home -Earth.

Each year, BSP take part in number of events including  Earth Hour, Earth Day, World Environment Day, BSP Trash to Treasure Sculpture Festival and the major Go Green Annual School Clean up that engages communities including schools, NGO’s and in partnership with various government agencies.  

As a community bank, BSP is leading the way in cleaning our communities, cities and country to create a pleasant habitat.
