“Despite the high costs of solar panels and electric vehicles, BPI offers flexible payment and discounts through the All Out Promo until March 31, 2024,” Cuajotor said.

Sustainability focus

In 2019, BPI broadened its green efforts to cover sustainable agriculture, joining its focus on renewable energy and climate resilience, through the Sustainable Development Finance (SDF) Program.

“BPI’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond its Green Solutions initiative,” the lender said.

“BPI’s bank-wide sustainability mandate, a first-of-its-kind program in the Philippine banking industry, underscores its unwavering dedication to deliver responsible banking to stakeholders, from clients to investors and local communities,” it added.

The SDF Program underscored BPI’s intensified commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), diversifying its services for sustainable development.
