Sustainability for Businesses

Our sustainability strategy has, at its core, a commitment to support our customers understand and act on their transition to lower emissions and to help them achieve their wider sustainability ambitions.

Sustainable finance is not one size fits all.

The customer stories in this booklet are examples of how we work in partnership with our customers across a wide range of sectors and geographies, mobilising finance and accelerating innovation to realise the opportunity to build a more sustainable, resilient, and prosperous future.

Today, we and many of our customers contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. We have a strategy to reduce our own emissions and to help our customers reduce theirs.  Find out more about our climate strategy.
