As Bill Winters, Group Chief Executive, said: “We remain committed to working collaboratively to achieve sustainability goals, including through our participation in the UN Global Compact. Our Sustainability Aspirations allow us to track the positive impact of our business in a way that is aligned to our strategy and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.”

Banks have an essential role in a prosperous and healthy society. We believe that by running our operations well, standing by our clients and investing in local communities, we can be a powerful force for good. By doing things the right way, we can have a positive social and economic impact on communities. Over the past decade, we have continuously delivered for our clients and customers, shareholders and communities. Some of the Sustainability programmes that we run globally and in country reflect how we drive prosperity and support the growth of the communities we operate in.
