Our Society

The creation of social capital is vital for the economy and a major driver of technological growth and social progress. For Bank of Cyprus, social value requires going beyond the regular transactional boundaries, engaging with all partners across the value chain, and recognising the role of financial institutions in modern societies.

As we go Beyond Banking, we aim to make a difference by elevating the Cyprus society and contribute to its continued socioeconomic development, by remaining a strong driving force of Sustainable Development in the country. 

We Examine - Contribute - Engage - Commit to the causes we support, according to the Group’s Donations, Sponsorships, and Partnerships Statement and the Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy, based on three pillars: Health, Education, Environment. In line with internal policies we also donate machinery and office equipment to help numerous NGOs and organisations meet their needs.
