Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility

Sustainability is a key priority at SNB, and we are committed to creating programs and initiatives that benefit our environment and communities, while advancing Saudi Arabia.
Sustainability is at the heart of our vision

Sustainability is a significant part of Saudi Vision 2030, and in line with that vision, SNB is the first bank in the Kingdom to establish a Sustainable Finance Framework. It enables us to issue sustainable bonds and Sukuk, and engage in other environmental, social, and governance initiatives.

Ahalina Programs

SNB has been developing its corporate responsibility strategy to boost the impact and depth of its programs. As a result, the Bank launched the Ahalina strategy that focuses on empowering various society groups, converting them into positive and developmental energies capable of supporting the national economy.

To this end, SNB has used its expertise and specialized capabilities in various fields to further support community initiatives that are in line with the Bank’s strategy, which, in collaboration with the public and non-profit sectors, aims to empower the community by empowering individuals and institutions and providing community support in various regions of the Kingdom.

The study was developed following an in-depth study that addressed societal needs and aligns with the goals outlined in the Kingdom's national agenda.
