To minimise any impact on our communities and people, we consider the environmental, social and governance risks that come with our financing decisions. That is why we have the Customer Charter in place, to treat our clients and customers fairly; and the strength and diversity of our staff enables us to better understand their needs.


At Standard Chartered, we believe in reducing our environmental impact in everything we do. In addition to financing in local projects involved in renewable energy, we ensure that the Bank reduces its carbon footprint. In 2012, Standard Chartered made a USD140 million investment in the Bank's new building which was an LEED gold approved building. Moreover, the Bank decreased water usage by 5.5% and power consumption by 15% in 2012.

Speaking Up

Standard Chartered Bank (the “Bank”) is committed to maintaining a culture of the highest ethics and integrity, and in compliance with all applicable law, regulation and internal policy.

Members of the public can securely raise Speaking Up concerns through this hyperlink, which is hosted on behalf of the Bank by a third party ‘InTouch’. Examples of concerns that can be raised through this website are concerns that relate to accounting, internal accounting controls or auditing matters and concerns relating to bribery or banking and financial crime. Concerns received will be forwarded to the Bank’s investigations team for review. Complaints relating to SCB banking services should not be raised through this site in the first instance, but through the SCB branch network, contact centres, Relationship Managers or the ‘Contact Us’ webpage.
