Green Tiger is a new initiative from Let's Do It, the organization that launched the global World Cleanup Day project. The aim of Green Tiger is to shape the movement into the next big countrywide initiative. Green Tiger can also be compared to the Estonian Tiger Leap computerization project from a few decades ago. Green Tiger creates a circular economy model for individuals, the community, as well as the private and the public sector. Green Tiger will be a future trendsetter for other countries. So far, LHV is the initiative’s only representative and partner from the banking sector.
The Estonian Banking Association’s sustainable banking committee was created in January 2020 at the initiative of LHV. One of the main goals of the committee is to use financing activities to help identify and leverage new sustainable business opportunities that will increase the competitiveness of local companies, communities and the country as a whole. The committee will alsocontribute to building sustainability-related awareness and be a partner for governmental institutions, the Bank of Estonia, and influential organizations in developing the field of sustainable financing.
