Sustainability

Reporting and Disclosures

scroll for more

Annually, we publish our Sustainability and Climate Reports to share our environmental, social and economic impacts. These reports reflect on the activities of the previous year and set out our plans for the future.

Our approach to sustainability is an overarching framework that supports and informs our long-term business strategy focused on climate, financial inclusion, diversity and inclusion while driving continual improvement. It is embedded in our corporate strategy with a stated purpose to be an active force for good in everything we do with the ambition of reaching net zero by 2050.

With our priority Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we are committed to working with our clients through partnerships to ensure a just, inclusive, and sustainable future for all stakeholders.

You can access our climate action journey and our annual Sustainability and Climate Reports by year from this page.

*Please note that the Taskforce for Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) Report was renamed to Climate Report and the ESG Report is now the Sustainability Report.
