In keeping with its greenovation initiative Nabil Bank has entered into an agreement with the Kathmandu Metropolitan to beautify traffic islands located in front of New Road Gate (West of Tundikhel) and City Hall (East of Tundikhel) installing 12 flower towers.
These flower towers will display flowers through-out the year using aeroponic technique. This system converts water into mist which is sprayed on the flowers regularly. Underground tank, water pump, inverter (alternate to city electricity) etc. are integral parts of the system. No pesticide is used.
Under this agreement, Nabil bank will be supporting the Kathmandu Metropolitan City by installing and maintaining these environmentally friendly, modern flower towers for the beautification of Kathmandu City.
Bidya Sunder Shakya, Mayor, Kathmandu Metropolitan said, “We are excited on collaboration with Nabil Bank for beautification of the traffic islands of Kathmandu city by displaying flowers through-out the year similar to what we see in cities of developed countries. This would be a good example also for other corporate houses to contribute in enhancement of the city’s environment.”
Anil Keshary Shah, Chief Executive Officer, Nabil Bank stated, “In continuity of our ongoing greenovation initiative, Nabil Bank is happy to join hands with Kathmandu Metropolitan City and assist in making Kathmandu a more beautiful city. We believe that flower towers like these will enhance not only the beauty but also the environment of the city we all call home.”
