Over 200 Joined Charger With a Heart, Postbank’s Green Initiative

The financial institution participated in the global initiative PARK(ing)Day for the fourth consecutive year

In 2016 Postbank joined the global initiative PARK(ing) Day for the fourth consecutive year. Over 200 Sofia residents visited the specially created green area outside the bank’s branch on 30 Tsar Ivan Shishman Str. During the event, everyone could ride a bicycle and take care of their own health and nature by generating green energy to charge their mobile devices. The bank organised its ‘green energy power station’ project with the support of Sport Depot which had provided the bicycles. The chargers, converting mechanical energy into electric one, had been developed specially for the project by Robopartans Robotics School.

The idea behind the event was to use an attractive approach to focus people’s attention on their health and encourage them to act responsibly towards the environment. The campaign was the financial institution’s way to contribute to the promotion of sports in the urban environment and remind about the alternative ways of green energy generation. For a day, without leaving the green areas, the initiative participants covered over 660 km  riding and generating energy of 432,000 J. Bicycle riding is one of the most popular cardio activities among the people willing to stay in good shape and have a healthy way of life. It is also one of the cheapest, accessible and enjoyable sports.

The initiative is a part of Postbank’s long term policy and numerous implemented projects on nature preservation. The financial institution continuously develops its programme encouraging ecological attitude in its employees and clients in line with its comprehensive sustainable development policy.
