National: NatWest Group India is pleased to announce the launch of NatWest Group Earth Heroes Awards 2022.

NatWest Group has been active in India supporting the UN SDGs, especially wildlife habitats, biodiversity, and livelihoods of tribal and other forest-dependent communities through the NatWest India Sustainability programmes.

As an extension of our conservation and community initiatives, we instituted the NatWest Group Earth Heroes Awards in 2011, to recognise and honour individuals and institutions who work exceptionally hard to preserve and protect our wildlife, habitats, and the welfare of communities.
