Pioneering sustainable progress in Mauritius through collaborative partnerships
For more than 180 years,
MCB has played a crucial role in
promoting economic and social
prosperity throughout Mauritius.
We could not have achieved this
without a strong commitment to
partnering with all sectors of society
to accelerate progress.
As we face a growing set of systemic social, economic,
environmental and geopolitical challenges, the need for
high-impact, multi-party partnerships is more pronounced
than ever. We cannot take an incremental or siloed approach
to these challenges. Instead, we need comprehensive and
Partnerships are essential to deliver on the United
Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and
the associated Sustainable Development Goals, which
emphasise the value of cross-sectoral collaboration and
cooperation. Global disruptions and concurrent crises,
such as the long recovery from the pandemic, high inflation
and the war in Ukraine, have slowed progress against
these crucial goals.
As Mauritius’ oldest and largest banking institution and an
increasingly well-known regional player, we can play a key
role in rallying stakeholders to work collectively towards
creating new and sustainable business models that are able
to better manage the complex societal and environmental
issues affecting our customers and communities.
Only by working together will we be able to secure progress
and construct resilient strategies that reduce inequality
and spur economic growth while tackling climate change.
I am proud that this year, together with our stakeholders,
we moved from commitment to action, and I look forward
to progressing together on this journey in the years ahead.
