Africa is our homeWe drive her growth

We are more than just a bank. In order for us to continue as a successful and sustainable business, we need to see value as more than just the financial outcome. We need to look beyond the financial outcome and SEE the value we create socially, economically and environmentally (SEE).

The value to society

There’s more to what we do - we impact people’s lives. Whether it’s in skills development, infrastructure, or education, we believe that any investment we make should positively impact the society and the future generations.

The value to the economy

Africa has enormous potential. We are committed to moving her forward by driving inclusive economic growth, developing and implementing better ways of doing business, and supporting African economic integration and development.

The value to the environment

We believe in creating value for the environment through the investments we make towards more renewable forms of energy.

Africa is our home, we drive her growth. We are more than a bank.

"To SEE more means
we can be more.A catalyst for
change in Africa."

Head, Group Policy, Advocacy and Sustainability, Standard Bank Group
