Well done for Bank of Abu Dhabi. Another great example is Vancity in Vancouver. This financial institution has embraced sustainability in everything they do. Worth checking their website:www.vancity.com

I hope more banks and companies will commit to sustainability. And thank you Abu Dhabi bank for being  a role model.
