United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
We’re very conscious of our obligations under the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We recognise the importance of understanding the implications of climate change, and what that will do to our business and to the business of our customers. We have a strong track record in alternative energy projects. And overall we are working to build a more sustainable bank in a very broad societal, economic and environmental context.
Sir Howard Davies, Chairman
We recognise that we will need to think differently to rise to the challenge of the Global Goals. We are committed to working collaboratively and exploring options with our partners, stakeholders and peers to achieve a better future for everyone.
Kirsty Britz, Director of Sustainable Banking
