Corporate Social responsibility (CSR) of LankaBangla is a form of corporate self-regulation integrated into our business model based on the objective of good business for good society at the moment and in near future. LankaBangla in its core management concept and corporate responsibility integrated CSR with focus on social and environmental concerns in all business operations and interactions with its stakeholders including shareholders, customers, employees, suppliers, business partners, local communities and other organizations.
With these CSR policies & principles, our organization believes in achieving a balance of economic, environmental and social imperatives (“Triple-Bottom-Line- Approach”)besides safeguarding interest of stakeholders. We have also considerably achieved efficient business operations and conscience corporate governance and compliance to facilitate smooth and effective business. As a result we have been able to contribute for our sustainable society.LankaBangla through its Foundation extends its support for underprivileged people of the community in particular to ensure their education, health and living.
The Financial System holds a unique position in an economy that can affect production, business and other economic activities through their procedure of financing activities which would in turn contribute to protecting the environment/ climate from pollution. Moreover, efficiency in energy use, water consumption and waste reduction may significantly contribute towards controlling the operating cost of many of the Banks/NBFIs of the country. All these make Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) a vital factor to consider.
The term Corporate Social Responsibility or CSR has evolved over the last few decades to broaden its scope from mere philanthropic contributions to strategic business decisions. The CSR definition used by businesses globally revolve around the notion of “Operating a business in a manner that meets or exceeds the ethical, legal, commercial and public expectations that society has of business.”
CSR is a concept whereby companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and in their interactions with their stakeholders on a voluntary basis. Integrating CSR with business presents a more sustainable business case in that:
- Social responsibility can become an integral part of the wealth creation process which, if managed properly, can enhance business competitiveness and maximize value creation.
- If conducted from a strictly philanthropic point of view, such expenses will always be the first to go during hard financial times, whereas there will be more incentives to practice CSR further and better during such crises.
However, in different countries and cultures, there will be different priorities and values to dictate how businesses should act and manage their impact on the environment and the society.
At LankaBangla Finance, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has always been an integral part of the company’s culture and the cornerstone of core values of good corporate citizenship. CSR is considered as an integral part of the organization’s strategy, operations and management in order to create the maximum value. The concern for stakeholders, community, and environment is reflected in our actions, and which strengthens our position as a responsible and sustainable business. The business financing goal is not only to tie with the business progress but also with the development of overall economic growth that drives the development of the nation at large.

“LankaBangla Foundation Scholarship was like a new sun shine in the dark nights for me. For a poor student like me, continuing higher study was difficult because I had to think about my earning to support my education”, said of the benfeciaries. LankaBangla has taken the burden on their shoulder and gave me the chance of concentrating my full time only in study. I feel no hesitation to state that if LankaBangla was not beside me, I might not have been able to continue my study properly. Throughout my under-graduation, LankaBangla Foundation was like a trusted, effective, exemplary and exceptional partner who eased my path to reach my destination. I was supported by the scholarship from mid 2010 till my last month of graduation. Presently, I am working as a Fellow in Teach For Bangladesh. I am looking forward for further improvement of my career
Teach for Bangladesh
I could never think of my present condition if I were not studying well in my under-graduation. I could never think of effective study in my university time if the scholarship were not there. My family did not have financial strength to support for my engineering study. But LankaBangla Foundation stood beside me and supported my higher education. Soon after I got the scholarship I did not require to look back - just concentrated on my study. I have no hesitation to say if the scholarship was not there, I might not have been able to be here where I am now - showing all my excellences. I am indebted to LankaBangla Foundation. Thanks for the scholarship. Thanks for everything.

I’m Md Tuhinur Rahman, BSc (Hons), MSc (Ongoig), Dept. of Physics, University of Dhaka. I have been a stipend holder from LankaBangla Foundation (LBF) since June 2010.
Without the financial help from LBF it would be difficult to continue my study. To me LBF is the silent guardian and blessing and I strongly believe that other students who receive the financial help from the Foundation have the same feeling. I am blessed and privileged to have LankaBangla on my side. The way LBF helps poor talent students is actually “Unique” and “Exemplary”. I also feel that LankaBangla has the strength and goodwill to “set the bar very high” in helping poor students so that it can become one of the best Foundations. I have high hope that LBF will continue helping and encouraging the poor and talented students who face financial barriers in completing their studies.
