Milestones

Over the years, Byblos Bank has contributed to the implementation and success of numerous initiatives all over Lebanon. We feel very proud of our achievements and look forward to making a difference in the lives of more people and communities in the future. Some of our major projects, beginning with the most recent, are listed below:

 

    1994
      Byblos Bank launches pioneering campaign aimed at cleaning up Lebanon’s coastal waters, an effort that continues to inspire similar projects today.
        1995
        Byblos Bank was the first in Lebanon to link one of its products to a fully fledged environmental initiative, pledging to plant one cedar tree in the name of each Lebanese working outside the country who signs up for an Expatriate Housing Loan to build or buy a residence in his or her homeland. The effort, which is ongoing, has yielded hundreds of new saplings at Byblos Bank Eternal Corner, a designated spot in the Barouk Cedars Reserve where we tend to our trees.
        1999
        • Donation of USD 500,000 to Notre-Dame University (NDU) to support construction of new campus buildings.
        • Donation of USD 600,000 to the Lebanese American University (LAU) to establish a new building named after the late Semaan Melkan Bassil, father of Byblos Bank’s Chairman and General Manager, Dr. François Bassil.
        • The Bank provided generous support to the annual Byblos Festival for 11 consecutive years, enabling it to become one of Lebanon’s most important cultural events and adding yet another reason for tourists to visit the ancient coastal city of Jbeil. The festival has also become vital to a healthy economic cycle in the region.

        • Donation of approximately USD 4 million toward reconstruction of the Fidar Bridge, a key span connecting areas within Mount Lebanon and the entire region with the rest of the country, after it was destroyed by an Israeli air strike.
