Keeping in line with its core values, the country's largest bank continues to boost its efforts towards promoting overall sustainability and fulfill its responsibility for the environment. As one of the founding members of the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), SBI is constantly thriving to incorporate green measures in all its possible avenues. As a result of these efforts, SBI now boasts eight buildings that are green certified by the IGBC. The two latest additions include; The Dunedin Bungalow which is the official residence of SBI's Chairman and The State Bank Bhavan.
