June 17: In keeping up with its ‘Greenovation’ initiative, Nabil Bank has entered into an agreement with Kathmandu Metropolitan City to beautify traffic islands located in front of New Road Gate and the City Hall by installing 12 flower towers.
According to the bank, these flower towers will display flowers throughout the year using ‘Aeroponic’ technique. The bank said in a statement that this system converts water into mist which is sprayed on the flowers regularly.
“Underground tank, water pump, inverter (alternate to city electricity) etc are integral parts of the system. No pesticide is used,” the statement said.
Under this agreement, Nabil Bank will be supporting Kathmandu Metropolitan City by installing and maintaining these environmentally-friendly, modern flower towers for the beautification of Kathmandu City.
Bidya Sunder Shakya, mayor of KMC, said, “We are excited about this collaboration with Nabil Bank for beautification of the traffic islands of Kathmandu by displaying flowers throughout the year similar to what we see in cities of developed countries. This would be a good example also for other corporate houses to contribute in enhancement of the city’s environment.”
Anil Keshary Shah, Chief Executive Officer of Nabil Bank, stated “In continuity of our ongoing Greenovation initiative, Nabil Bank is happy to join hands with Kathmandu Metropolitan City and assist in making Kathmandu a more beautiful city. We believe that flower towers like these will enhance not only the beauty but also the environment of the city we all call home.”
Nabil Bank is providing its services through a network of 79 branches, 133 ATMs and more than 1500 Nabil remit agents throughout the nation and many correspondents across the globe.
