Climate change is a critical global issue, which has significant implications for us as an organisation and our key stakeholders. Our climate strategy forms a key part of our sustainability strategy and flows from our purpose. As a business, we’re committed to playing our part in enabling a just transition to a net zero economy.

Our climate strategy

  • Net zero assessment for top suppliers
  • Further develop transition plans to achieve net zero by 2050

3 - Embedding climate into our corporate DNA

  • Integrate climate into how we think, act and make decisions
  • Embed climate considerations into our lending, strategic and financial decisions
  • Engage colleagues, management and our board on climate through awareness and training

Joining forces for good

In 2022, we joined Tech Zero, a climate action group for tech companies of all sizes, who are committed to fighting the climate crisis. By working together with our industry peers, we can make faster progress to becoming net zero and develop climate solutions together.

In 2022, we also joined UK Green Building Council, a trade body advancing the net zero built environment agenda in the UK.
