Success Beyond Numbers

Our aim is to have a positive economic, social, environmental and cultural impact in the long run. We understand that to do so, our role as a business needs to evolve and that we have a key role to play in creating prosperity for our communities.

Our convictions

Now is the time to redefine the way we measure success.

Our global pledges

Principles for Responsible Banking

MCB is a founding signatory of the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Banking. MCB has pledged to align its banking activities with the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

These Principles for Responsible Banking are a joint initiative of banks and the United Nations, through the UNEP Finance Initiative (UNEP FI).


Equator Principles

Since 15 May 2012, MCB has adopted the Equator Principles. This framework stands as the foundation and guiding principle of the bank’s Environmental and Social Policy.


United Nations Global Compact

The United Nations Global Compact launched in October 2020 the Local Network for Mauritius and the Indian Ocean region. The Network comprises 27 enterprises, including MCB.

MCB Gender Equality Charter

We believe in equal opportunity for all. Through our charter, we have made the formal commitment to adopt, implement and promote gender equality and foster an inclusive workplace environment.


Getting our people involved

Our Social Leave program empowers our people to take one paid leave day each year to volunteer for non-profit organisations. Be it planting, painting, cleaning, sorting, or even keeping company, no action is ever too trivial. By giving our people the opportunity to support community partners, we can help do more good, together.
