Our commitment to the environment and community

Environmental Awareness

At CIB, reducing our carbon footprint is an urgent priority. Our Going Green campaign encourages employees to save paper, water, electricity and other consumables at our head offices and across our locations. Among many initiatives, energy efficient lighting and water-flow restrictors conserve energy and water across our workplaces. We are always working to improve the environmental sustainability of our facilities and systems. In line with our commitment to transparency and corporate sustainability, we produce our Carbon Footprint Report and are conducting greenhouse gas inventories across our locations.

Community Investment

Our employees demonstrate time and again their dedication to the wider community. CIB supports health, culture, and education programs for children; initiatives for youth empowerment and volunteerism; and public events for persons with disabilities; and our employees participate generously. Every year at branches around Egypt, they take part in CIB's blood donation campaign to help meet blood transfusion needs in Egypt, and through community and charitable events, they raise money for children's cancer research and other worthy causes.

Community Responsibility activities 


CIB and KidZania's partnership began in 2013, and since then, the Bank has organized several trips each year to KidZania for more than 150 underprivileged and special needs children, as well as children with health conditions. Through the CIB Foundation's sponsorship, the trips provided children with a fun setting where they learned about different banking operations.

Autism International Day/ADVANCE

The Bank’s sponsorship of the Egyptian Advance Society for Persons with Autism and Other Disabilities (ADVANCE)’s April Autism Month continued through online activities, such as the virtual Annual Autism Conference and the virtual Art Exhibition for Children & Youth with Autism spectrum disorder.


Beena is a protocol signed between CIB and the Ministry of Social Solidarity to encourage active youth participation in the community and monitor the development of social care services. The Bank has been the main partner and financial sponsor of Beena for four consecutive years. This initiative successfully attracted thousands of youths around Egypt who volunteered with orphans, senior citizens, and individuals with special needs.

The artistic works of the festival were hosted in the historic and cultural locations throughout Cairo, including the Palace of Arts, Aisha Fahmy Palace, the Museum of Modern Egyptian Art, and the Zamalek Art Complex. The Biennale comes as part of significant efforts to bring back to Egypt stalled international events, cementing the country’s cultural role and leadership.

Sports Development Responsibility Activities

Squash Tournament Sponsorships

CIB has expanded its squash-related sponsorships to open doors for more Egyptian athletes to progress in the PSA world rankings. 

The most notable sponsorship in 2020 was the CIB Egyptian Squash Open Women’s & Men’s Platinum, which took place simultaneously in front of the Great Pyramid of Giza, and brought together 96 athletes with total prize of USD 540,000. The tournament made significant international waves in both the squash community and sporting arena worldwide due to the unprecedented move toward women’s equality and received significant media pickup. 

CIB is committed to becoming title sponsors of future tournaments in Egypt.
