Sustainability is the core value of Standard Chartered Bank’s corporate culture. It is committed to shaping the Bank as a sustainable company, creating value for shareholders, providing quality services to customers, and contributing to the overall economy to become a positive force in the community. It is the concrete demonstration of the brand promise – “”Here for good””.

To materialize our brand promise through our behaviours, Standard Chartered revised our sustainability model to encompass 3 pillars: Sustainable Finance, Responsible Company, and Inclusive Communities.

  • Responsible Company is about we strive to manage our business sustainably and responsibly, drawing on our purpose, brand promise, valued behaviours and Code of Conduct to enable us to make the right decisions.
  • Inclusive Communities is about we aim to create more inclusive economies by sharing our skills and expertise, developing community programmes that transform lives.

Futuremakers

Futuremakers

Futuremakers, is Standard Chartered Group global initiative to tackle the issue of inequality and seeks to promote greater economic inclusion for young people in our communities. Our ambition is to raise USD50 million (through fundraising and Bank-matching) between 2019 and 2023 to empower the next generation to learn, earn and grow.

Since May 2013, the Standard Chartered Bank has integrated non-profit organisations, government units to create “Standard Chartered Seeing is Believing (SiB) Visually Impaired (VI) Employment Platform” and titled-sponsored the largest “Standard Chartered Taipei Charity Marathon” in Taiwan for eight consecutive years. The marathon has successfully placed nearly 550 VI talents into jobs since 2014.

Moving forward, Standard Chartered decided to carry the legacy of SiB and launched a global charity initiative “Futuremakers” project in supporting 16-35 years old less advantaged youth with visual impairment or from low/ middle income family, to help them pursue their dreamed career without worries and inequality.

In 2019, Standard Chartered together with our long-term partnering NGOs, namely Parents’ Association for the Visually Impaired (PAVI), Technology Development Association for the Disabled (TWACC) and recruited one new partner – The Garden of Hope Foundation (GOH) to join and provide their experienced adolescent service, offer less advantaged youth a brighter future, care for their quality of education and employment, tackle the issue of inequality and seeks to promote greater economic inclusion for young people in our communities. In 2020, Futuremakers project served more than 1,200 disadvantaged youth to pursue their careers.

Standard Chartered Bank promoted this good cause through Standard Chartered Taipei Charity Marathon and encouraged employees, clients, customers and general public to run for charity and to donate money to the project. VI people was also encouraged to go outdoors to challenge themselves and around 250 VI people and low-income youths participated the race.

Join us to empower more young people by supporting Futuremakers programme, together we can make a real difference.

Volunteerism is deeply embedded in the Standard Chartered corporate culture. Each employee is entitled to 3 days of volunteering leave every year. As we encourage all staff to join the community service activities of their enthusiasm, department-based volunteering activities are also welcome in conjunction with family day to call upon deeper coherence to the bank culture and the community. The Bank also conducted employee volunteering award to recognize volunteering activities which demonstrate the creativity, long-term commitment to specific non-profit organization, or the best demonstration of core competence. In 2020, we have contributed 3,256 days of employee volunteering days.

The highlights of employee volunteering activities in 2020:
  • Over 300 employees registered Standard Chartered Taipei Charity Marathon as volunteers to serve runners at the finish line, guide the running track, and exchange rewards at the event.
  • Organized environmental protection campaign EcoLife on Earth Day in 2019 to advocate less carbon life such as no plastic, using reusable cup, brining lunch box, etc. Around 1,000 employees and customers joined this campaign. And our commitment to the environment has not been slowed down even with COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. We rolled out 35 green day challenge on Earth Day, April 22, 2020. By introducing one green mission in 35 consecutive days, e.g. minimize printing, encouraging walking, to promote public sustainability awareness. 1,236 employees have completed the challenge, together reduced 50,617 kg of carbon emission, equivalent of 843,000 plastic bags.
  • During the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic in first half of 2020, the Bank initiated “Stay Well” programme, we called upon near 1,432 employees to do online shopping for the disadvantaged families to be able to access sufficient daily and nutrition support; echoed “reading equality” to proofread audiobook material online, assisted visually impaired people to order masks online and recorded 5 minutes video of home exercise to ensure disadvantaged young people can still access to resources related to epidemic prevention.
