On 25th June Roshan won the “Sustainability Commercialized Award” at the Ethical Corporations Responsible Business Awards Ceremony held in Central London. The Award was received by Shainoor Khoja, Director Social Programs.
In this category, the judges were looking for an organization who could most clearly demonstrate how they have incorporated responsible business and sustainability thinking into commercial objectives. Roshan was competing alongside companies such as Novartis Arogya Parivar, Santander, Brazil, Turk Telekom, Western Union and a few others. Roshan’s M-Paisa product won the award.
The judges praised Roshan for rolling out a commercial platform in Afghanistan and successfully incorporating this new product into their mainstream business-thinking. They said that by creating the M-PAISA product, Roshan has not only made it easier for rural populations to have banking access, they have also helped reduce corruption and re-establish trust in the banking sector.
We would like to congratulate the Roshan Family for their continuous effort towards achieving excellence which is recognized not only on national platforms but internationally as well!
