Inclusive economic growth

SDG 8 prioritises the promotion of sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all. We all have a role to play in building a more equitable and sustainable society, broadening economic opportunity and supporting job creation.


Standard Bank’s core business supports inclusive economic growth by providing financial services that will enable individual businesses to grow and expand into new markets, invest in innovation, improve productivity, create jobs and evolve to meet changing customer needs. Our financial solutions enable individuals to grow their savings, buy homes, invest in their futures and insure the things that matter to them.


A better deal for the taxi industry

In 2017, South Africa’s Minister of Transport called on financial institutions to ‘give taxi operators a better deal’ in financing new vehicles. The taxi industry plays a significant role in Africa’s economies, as an employer and as a primary provider of transportation for many.


Contributing towards Stanbic Bank achieving an impact in facilitating inclusive economic growth just makes good business sense and it is something I believe in. In order for us to remain sustainable in the long term, we must be relevant in the environment we operate in and should purposefully provide services and products that get the job done in meeting the needs of our stakeholders and that enhance the lives of the community as a whole.
