NSBP Leads Campaign On Clean Seas To Promote Healthy Environment (Photos)

In order to reduce the rate at which plastic and dirt are dumped in the ocean, the Nigerian Sustainable Banking Principles (NSBP) champion group, Trash Users, and Green Ambassadors have carried out a clean-up exercise at the Lafaji beach, Ajah-Lagos during the last weekend.

The activity was to commemorate World Environment Day (WED) held globally on June 5, 2023, to integrate environmental and social policies into decision-making processes in commercial banks.

The Nigerian Sustainable Banking Principles (NSBPs) are primarily designed to align banking practices in Nigeria with the sustainable development agenda of the country in a way that does not hamper the competitiveness of the banks.

According to the NSBP group, “Clean Seas Campaign renews its global efforts to tackle marine litter and plastic pollution, now with a focus on how individuals can use both national and international laws to push for change. The campaign aims to break humanity’s addiction to unnecessary and avoidable plastic, pollution.”

NSBP called for the protection of marine life, and waste management that would engender a cleaner and healthier environment, as part of its guidelines aimed at integrating environmental and social policies.

The group recommended the need for more advocacy and education to sensitize the people, publicity, recycling, and cycling are other channels that can effectively curb plastic pollution in Nigeria.
