We recognise that we have a responsibility to assess the environmental and social impacts of our business – and to manage these impacts. Here's how we do it:
We aim to reduce our annual carbon emissions per employee from 3.5 tonnes to 2.5 tonnes by 2020.
We're helping our customers by developing products and services that will support the transition to a low carbon economy.
By investing in educational partnerships, we commit time, money and resources to help young people reach their potential.
Our five-year partnership with Earthwatch, WaterAid and WWF is focused on water provision, protection and education.
Through our policies, we anticipate and address potential social or environmental risks that may arise through our lending and investment.
Here are some examples of how we are working with our stakeholders to build a more sustainable future.
