From banking to urban farming, Bank of China sponsors Prof. Compas' vision of an urban garden

City dwellers are often removed from the agricultural process that brings food to their tables. But thanks to technology, there's a growing trend of urban farming that is making it possible for people to grow their own food right in their own backyards or balconies.

On July 5, 2022, Bank of China helped spread awareness on urban farming by publishing and launching Professor Compas' book entitled ‘Crafting an Innovative Urban Garden’ at the Ascott in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. The book looks at how city dwellers can now realize small-scale home-based farming technology to produce vegetables right in their own home and small yards.

This collaboration is part of the Bank’s larger mission of embedding Environmental, Social, and Governance initiatives into its activities. According to Deng Jun, Country Head at Bank of China Manila, this is because sustainability is a core long-term strategy at Bank of China. “The Group continues to integrate sustainable development into its overall business development strategy and daily business operations, promoting sustainable development through various innovative transformation and digitalization, green operation initiatives, sustainable finance, and green financial products and services,” he said.
