PNB remains committed towards balancing profitability and social sustainability through a cycle that reinvests profits to uplift society. Our contributions are allocated to three core areas: healthcare, community and education development. Funds are channelled to social and welfare organisations as well as partners with proven programmes that empower and uplift social-being, especially among communities that face numerous challenges and difficulties in their lives.
PNB supported numerous programmes that reached out to various communities, with the aim of further improving their quality of life. Contributions were made to important causes such as the National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM), Majlis Kebajikan dan Pembangunan Kebangsaan Malaysia(MAKPEM) and home-building initiatives for Semai Orang Asli community in Tapah, Perak. Opportunities were also given to employees to be involved in these projects through our employee volunteerism programme. This is to nurture compassion and encourage the spirit of volunteerism among PNB's employees.
PNB had supported the government in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic via various financial aids and programmes. Our key contributions include monetary donation and the purchase of medical supplies, personal protective equipment (PPEs), ventilators, air purifying respirator units and computer equipment. Besides COVID-19 related equipments, we also financially supported the purchase of medical equipment for cardiology, ophthalmology and nephrology related medical issues in collaboration with the Medical Development Division, Ministry of Health (MOH).
PNB continues to improve the livelihood of the underprivileged Asnaf community through our zakat distribution programme towards promoting better healthcare, enhancing education and providing financial and social support.
PNB contributed to CENDANA's (Cultural Economy Development Agency) initiative 'Art in the City'; an outdoor art display initiative aimed at raising greater awareness on the Malaysian arts and culture landscape.
