After earning AAA credit rating 7 years in a row, Green Delta Insurance has bagged another global recognition yesterday (16 November 2020) at the “Pioneers of Change Summit 2020” by World Economic Forum (WEF) in the category of “excellence in sustainability”.
The Pioneers of Change summit (16-20 November) aims to explore the innovation needed to bounce back from the pandemic. As a part of the summit, WEF also hosted the New Champions awards and recognized organizations with the potential to create real long-term change through the areas of sustainability, digital disruption and agile governance. The World Economic Forum’s New Champion companies explore or already use business models, technologies and sustainable growth strategies that will be needed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The aim of these awards is to recognize such projects or initiatives that have the potential to deliver a substantial impact on business and society, be financially viable and ready to operate at scale or already doing so.
MD & CEO of Green Delta Insurance, Farzanah Chowdhury shared, “We at GDIC have made sustainability an integral part of everything we do. We are truly honoured to be recognized as a New Champion organization by WEF for excellence in sustainability! My heartiest congratulations to all my fellow members of Green Delta family, as their dedication and hard work, have made such recognition possible.”
The AMD & Company Secretary, Syed Moinuddin Ahmed added, “While we had to accept and adapt to the “new normal”, we at GDIC perceived it as our prime responsibility to be adaptive while maintaining utmost caution and trying to get back to our regular daily lives for the sake of our people, economy and the country. Motivated by the same belief, we at GDIC have maintained business as usual through the massive digital transformation of our services and working format. Moreover, we have also continued our sustainable business footprint through different initiatives aimed at benefitting the marginal people.”
