Al Hilal Bank, a progressive Islamic bank, has launched a new ‘Plant a Tree’ initiative in partnership with the Emirates Environmental Group (EEG). The program forms part of the bank’s commitment to promoting a ‘greener’ Earth and preserving nature for future generations to enjoy. The Memorandum of Agreement governing the initiative was signed in the presence of Saif Al Dhahiri, Executive Vice President- EVP, Human Capital and Facilities Management, Al Hilal Bank.

Under the ‘Plant a Tree’ program, a tree will be planted under the name of every child opening a ‘Seghaar’ Savings Account at Al Hilal Bank. Children and their patents will be able to follow the growth of their particular tree either in person or through updated pictures to fully appreciate the contribution they have made to the environment.

“Our ‘Plant a Tree’ initiative is important to the Bank as it embodies our full commitment to the community and the environment. It empowers the future generations to make concrete contributions towards environmental preservation. Moreover, it complements the admirable work of the EEG in ensuring a ‘greener’ future for the people of the UAE. We thank all of those who are supporting this initiative and assure our customers, partners and the general public that a greener Earth will continue to be a key priority for our organization,” said Mohamed Jamil Berro, CEO of Al Hilal Bank.

“We hope that more members of the private sector will follow Al Hilal Bank’s example and take more proactive steps towards preserving nature for our children and future generations,” added Habiba Al Marashi, Chairperson, Emirates Environmental Group.

Al Hilal Bank is fully-owned by the Abu Dhabi Investment Council, the investment arm of the Government of Abu Dhabi. It manages 21 local branches and 112 ATMs across the UAE as well as three overseas branches in Kazakhstan.
