The top 5 non-banking financial institutions were awarded in this rating in 2020 and 2021, and IPDC earned its place in the rankings both times.

Also present at the event were Fazle Kabir, Governor of Bangladesh Bank; Kazi Sayedur Rahman, Deputy Governor; Abu Farah Md. Nasser, Deputy Governor; Nurun Nahar, Executive Director; and Khondkar Morshed Millat, Director, among many others.

Speaking on the occasion, Mominul Islam, Managing Director and CEO of IPDC Finance said, “Bangladesh Bank deserves praise for implementing such a timely initiative as the Sustainability Report. Such initiatives will guide and inspire the financial institutions of the country to act more responsibly in the coming days.”
