Sustainability

A force for good

We’re committed to promoting social and economic development through our core business of banking

Our Approach

For over 150 years we’ve provided banking services that help people and companies to succeed, creating wealth, jobs and growth across some of the world’s most dynamic regions.

We are committed to promoting economic and social development in the markets we serve, doing so sustainably and equitably in line with our purpose and three valued behaviours: ‘Never settle’, ‘Better together’ and ‘Do the right thing’. 

This sustainability philosophy sets out how we integrate sustainability into our organisational decision-making.

Growth in our markets is leading to rapid urbanisation and creating increased need for infrastructure and technology. We believe finance plays a key role in meeting these needs. It enables individuals to build a positive future or themselves and their families, businesses to thrive and grow, and governments to deliver economic prosperity for the wider community.

Supporting sustainable and responsible growth, including delivering the UN Sustainable Development Goals (‘SDGs’), represents a significant opportunity us. In pursuing this opportunity, we are guided by our brand promise, Here for good
