Green Banking


Green Banking is a component of the global initiative by a group of stakeholders to save the environment. Global warming is an issue that needs to be addressed and due to this phenomenon, the state of the environment in Bangladesh is deteriorating. Because of a Bank’s position in the economic system, implementing Green Finance as part of Green Banking can make significant contributions to the transition to resource efficient and low carbon industries. In response to our environmental degradation, MDB shall play an important role by establishing Green Banking and be a front runner as an environmentally responsible bank.

As per guidelines of Bangladesh Bank, in the first phase, MDB will develop Green Banking policies, incorporate Environmental Risks in CRM, initiate in-house Environment Management, introduce Green Finance and Green Marketing, create Climate Risk Fund, utilize online banking, establish consumer awareness, train employees, hold ‘Green Events’ and disclose & report Green Banking activities. In the second phase, it will formulate sector specific environmental policies, develop Green Strategic Planning, set up Green Branches, improve on in-house Environment Management, formulate bank specific ERM, introduce programs to educate clients and publish Green Banking reports. In the third phase, MDB will design and introduce innovative products, publish externally audited Green Banking reports, report to Bangladesh Bank on a quarterly basis and publish annual reports on the bank’s website.

Updates on MDBs progress on Green Banking will be posted on this website periodically.

Message from Chairman



Assalamu Alaikum, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to everyone and start by quoting the Holy Quran:
“Whoever works righteousness, man or woman, and has faith, verily, to them will We give a new Life, a life that is good and pure, and We will bestow on such their reward according to the best of their actions.” (The Holy Qur’an, 16:97)

By the Grace of almighty Allah, Midland Bank Limited, a fourth generation bank in Bangladesh started its journey on the 9th of April, 2013. Midland Bank is committed to its core vision & missions and plans to be a frontrunner financial institution by providing righteous, honest, fair and ethical business solutions.
