Being a Responsible Company

Practicing strong governance, looking after our people and minimising our direct environmental impacts are central to being a responsible company. We uphold a strong conduct framework and invest in our people to deliver fair outcomes for our stakeholders. Being a responsible company is about how we manage our business and promote the behaviours, values and principles that enable us to make the right decisions. We focus on preventing financial crime, investing in our people and minimising our environmental footprint. We recognise that our diversity is a critical lever for delivering our business priorities and we actively work to build an inclusive workplace.In 2016, we engaged staff through more than 40 country-based Employee Networks and few Global Networks such as Women and Less Ability Groups.

Between 2008 and 2016, we reduced our energy consumption by 37%, water consumption by 35% and paper use by 71%. We’ve held over 25 correspondent banking academies this year, and 97% of staff completed financial crime training. Our Sustainability Aspirations highlight our focus on embedding the highest standards of conduct across the organisation.
