Why we do it
Our Chief Sustainability Officer explains how we’re financing the future – and making a vital difference in areas where the transition will be toughest.
Our climate policies and targets
We will align the financed emissions from our portfolio of customers to net zero by 2050 or sooner.
We’re setting 2030 targets for emissions reduction in different sectors, focusing on the heaviest emitters first. This includes a commitment to phase down our fossil fuel financing. By working with clients to develop transition plans, we will understand, sector by sector and client by client, how to reach net zero by 2050.
Three steps forward in our net zero transition
We’re setting out transformational changes we’re making to deliver on our climate strategy and targets.
How we’re enabling the transition from coal to clean
