Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Management
Our GHG management standards help us assess, monitor, and manage GHG emissions and their associated operations and business activities. We maintain an annual inventory report of our GHG emissions and utilize innovative technologies to improve and manage our approach and commitment among NBK’s premises: Headquarters 1 & 2, Al Raya Tower, and our branches. NBK's use of automobile transportation is an additional and minor indirect source of GHG emissions.

Energy and Water Management
NBK recognizes the importance of water as a fundamental resource. As a global company, we understand that access to adequate supplies of water is essential for the communities in which we operate. NBK is also committed to conserving energy as much as possible. Therefore, we manage both energy and water consumption responsibly across our branches by implementing numerous energy conservation measures and by using the lowest possible volume of fresh water in our operations, as well as by reusing water where conditions permit.
