Axis Bank’s Clean-A-Thon: Leading the Charge for a Greener India
In a resounding testament to its dedication to environmental conservation, Axis Bank, a powerhouse among India’s private sector banks, has etched its name into the prestigious Asia Book of Records. This feat has been achieved through their remarkable nationwide initiative – the ‘Clean-A-Thon,’ which was meticulously orchestrated in sync with the pulse of World Environment Day 2023. The bank’s proactive stance in this grand endeavor garnered them not one but two coveted titles from the Asia Book of Records: “Maximum Water Bodies Cleaned During a Week-Long Cleanliness Drive” and “Maximum Kilograms of Garbage Collected from Water Bodies Across Multiple Cities.” This recognition echoes Axis Bank’s commitment to effecting tangible change and leaving an indelible mark on the environment.
A Defining Achievement
The glorious crowning of Axis Bank in the Asia Book of Records is a remarkable manifestation of their commitment to a cleaner planet. The accolades received for their ‘Clean-A-Thon’ initiative underlines their resolve to address the formidable challenge posed by pollution in water bodies. These titles, earned through their unwavering efforts, position Axis Bank as a tough agent of positive transformation.
Uniting for Change
Axis Bank’s ‘Clean-A-Thon’ was not a solitary endeavor but a rallying cry that galvanized collaboration. A robust alliance with 14 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) amplified the impact of this nationwide drive. Over 3,700 passionate volunteers enthusiastically took up the mantle, joining hands to rejuvenate 22 water bodies sprawled across 18 cities in India. This collective labor bore fruit in the form of 12,794 kilograms of waste extracted from these water bodies, breathing life back into ecosystems and gasping for relief.

Mr. Ravi Narayanan, Group Executive – Branch Banking, Retail Liabilities & Product, Axis Bank, eloquently expressed the bank’s sentiments, stating, “This recognition from the Asia Book of Records fills us with pride.
