Positive Impact is at the heart of what we do
We're committed to being a sustainable, ethical and caring organisation. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is key to how we do business, how we act and how we make things happen in society as we take pride in the valuable contribution we make to our local communities.
We have a clear focus – to promote access to more responsible and sustainable consumption, to support our customers and partners.
Our world is facing unprecedented challenges – climate change, the depletion of natural resources, and rising inequalities, at a time people are experiencing big changes to how they live and work. Through more responsible consumption, people have the power to preserve natural resources, reduce their carbon footprint and make a difference on a greater scale.

Looking ahead, we will continue our journey to transform our business, operating models and offers, and to address the challenges our climate and people in society face.
Transforming our business, Operating models and offers
We’re here to build a sustainable and inclusive relationship with our partners. We actively seek ways to help our customers to reduce their environmental footprint and are committed to expanding access to our financial services to a broader range of customers.
Acting as a role model company and employer
We believe in creating a sustainable, fair, and inclusive workplace as a diverse team makes for a stronger team. From our commitment to gender equality, mental health and being a Disability Confident employer to minimising the environmental impact of our operations, we lead by example.
Making a positive impact in our communities
We take our responsibility as a major employer in the region seriously. That’s why we’re passionate about giving young people the skills and opportunities they need to succeed. We also encourage colleagues to volunteer for causes they care about.
