Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

Since its establishment in 1930, and even before the term "Corporate Social Responsibility" became a fashionable trend, Banque Libano-Française has been seeking to look beyond the bottom line by fostering economic growth and contributing to a better society. 

Over 80 years of presence in the market attest that Banque Libano-Française has always been doing its business in a sustainable manner by embracing its five founding values: Responsibility, Integrity, Competences, Humanism, and Engagement. Inspired by these values and guided by a solid Corporate Governance framework, the Bank adopts a substantial and dedicated CSR strategy focused on four main pillars: Marketplace, Workplace, Community and Environment

In April 2013, Banque Libano-Française was selected by LIBNOR (The Lebanese Standards Institution, attached to the Lebanese Ministry of Industry) amongst several applicants to participate, as a pilot organization, in the uptake and use of the International Organization for Standardization in Geneva ISO 26,000 guidelines, an International Standard providing organizations with guidance concerning Social Responsibility (SR).

By following ISO 26,000 principles, Banque Libano-Française aims at further integrating Social Responsibility in its behaviors, business operations, and interactions with all stakeholders. 

Following the conduction of a Gap Analysis based on 7 Core Subjects: Organizational Governance, Labor Practices, Human Rights, Environment, Fair Operating Practices, Consumer Issues as well as Community Involvement and Development, BLF modified in 2014 its Mission Statement to reflect shared value and sustainability

BLF also formulated in 2014 a new strategy, covering each of its four existing pillars, aiming at Leading Sustainable Banking in Lebanon through:

- Sustainable Lending
- Sustainable Financial Innovation
- Sustainable Support to the Community
- Sustainable Environmental Strategy
- Sustainable Engagement with Stakeholders

Based on BLF conducted gap analysis and stakeholder engagement survey, the new strategy is addressed in a long term action plan that was highlighted by ISO 26,000 in a case study and a fact sheet

In 2014, BLF also took the next step to longstanding commitment to sustainability by signing a Letter of Commitment to join the United Nations Global Compact, “the world’s largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative that offers a strategic businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.” 

In 2015, BLF was selected to sit with other business and non-business leaders - on board of the AUB-led UNGC Local Network Steering Committee to set a plan, oversee the activities of the Network and serve as the focal point of coordination and communication to support the advancement and implementation of the 10 principles through dialogue, the exchange of information and the expansion of the Lebanon signatories to the UNGC.
BLF also established a CSR Committee headed by the Bank's Chairman General Manager. 

In 2016 and 2017, the Bank delivered internal awareness sessions to its entire staff. The trainings took place within the framework of “Live our Values Everyday” workshops, providing a vital introduction to CSR and highlighting the relationship between the Bank’s core values and social responsibility.

In 2018, as member of the Global Compact Network Lebanon Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Council, BLF is contributing to the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development.
