Bavaroko Students

Thousands of children across Papua New Guineas, Tonga and Samoa armed with gloves and bin bags, picked rubbish and cleaned up around their school communities today.

This was to mark the 2015 BSP Go Green Annual School Clean Up Day. The theme for Go Green was ‘Recycle, Reuse, Respect’.


The event was coordinated through BSP branches in PNG, and for the first time in Samoa and Tonga.

In Port Moresby, the clean up was led by BSP Brand Ambassador Ryan Pini, MBE at Bavaroko Primary School.

Pini’s Go Green message was simple when he spoke to the children.

“Be Responsible and think about where your litter ends up. By taking part in this event, we are all Go Green ambassadors and it is our responsibility to remind and encourage our friends, family and wantoks to respect and care for environment.”

For 2015, Fiji has completed their Clean up event in September while the Cook Islands conducted theirs last Friday November 13th. Solomon Islands will host their event on Saturday November 28th.

BSP thanks everyone for participating the 2015 Go Green Annual School Clean up day.

BSP is proud to be a part of the community and will continue to promote the Go Green message to encourage communities and children to respect and keep our streets litter free. The reward for everyone will be a cleaner community and students will learn to be more responsible in caring for the environment.




BSP is a major commercial banking and finance group across PNG, Solomon Islands and Fiji, with assets of approximately PGK16 billion (USD 6.4 billion) representing approximately 38% of loans and 49% of deposits across those markets respectively. In July 2015, BSP successfully purchased Westpac Operations in Cook Islands, Samoa and Tonga.

In PNG, the BSP Group holds approximately 50% market share in both loans and deposits.  With a significant presence in PNG, Fiji and Solomon Islands, BSP’s growth potential has always been likely to come from acquisition or line-of-business investment opportunities.

BSP views itself as a major PNG and South Pacific banking and finance entity, with a strong regional business, and has pursued a diversification and expansion strategy, to seek out both geographic and business line opportunities of economic size and merit.
