Mangrove Restoration Projects in Singapore and Malaysia
We will be contributing S$3 million to the OCBC Mangrove Park, Singapore’s largest mangrove restoration project, located on Pulau Ubin. We are also supporting another mangrove project at Tebuk Mendeleng, Malaysia. Together, the two projects on either side of the Causeway will see 18,000 mangrove trees being planted to absorb more than 30 million kg of CO₂ over their lifetimes.
Giving 1,800 hours to the communities
Under our #OCBCCares programme, our volunteers in Singapore and Malaysia have achieved a combined 1,962 hours of skills-based volunteering for the month of October 2022 – the month that we celebrate our 90th anniversary. This surpasses our target of 900 hours of skills-based volunteering in Singapore and another 900 in Malaysia.
Partnered with the National Parks Board in 2019 to set up the OCBC Arboretum, a first-of-its-kind high-tech arboretum in Southeast Asia which houses more than 2,000 specimens of over 200 species of Dipterocarps.
OCBC Skyway in Gardens by the Bay
Sponsored the OCBC Skyway in Gardens by the Bay in 2012, a 128-metre-long aerial walkway with a sprawling view of the Gardens against the backdrop of Marina Bay.
The ways in which we give to our customers have evolved with time. Here are some examples.
Growing to give
There is no better way to commemorate our 90th anniversary than with some of our fondest highlights and memorabilia shared by the public.
Constantly innovating because of you
For every inspiration, every milestone, and every innovation, we want to thank you for always pushing us to make the world a better place and keep reminding us to give back.
