Driving change that matters

Serving our clients’ sustainable finance needs

Our clients are at the heart of everything we do, and they‘re increasingly looking to put their capital to work in sustainable ways. Sustainable finance is crucial when it comes to helping them achieve their diverse sustainable objectives. It’s also a key pillar of our sustainability and impact strategy. That’s why we have high ambitions for sustainable finance across our business.

Transitioning to a low-carbon economy

We want to be the financial provider of choice for clients that wish to mobilize capital toward the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the orderly transition to a low-carbon economy. We’re focusing on three key areas to drive that transition (Planet, People and Partnerships) and here’s why.

Leading in key sustainable ratings

We have been awarded top ratings and rankings by industry experts: CDP, Climate A list; Dow Jones Sustainability Index; Sustainalytics by Morningstar, rated low-risk; and MSCI ESG ratings, named as a Leader and awarded an AA rating.

Addressing societal challenges

We strive to be a diverse and inclusive organization. We believe in a society to match. Why? Because we think it can help promote long-term economic and social development and reduce inequalities. Through our interactions with each other, the communities in which we operate and our wider stakeholders, as well as through client and corporate philantropy, we’re using our influence to address societal challenges and help people advance.

Driving social impact

As we continue to drive our social impact and philanthropy services strategy forward, we’re building a strong platform for the future. We seek to grow our reach and maximize our impact on a local, national and global scale. Our vision is to develop and scale both our impact and our commercial contribution by connecting people for a better, fairer and more prosperous world.

Shaping a high-performing organization

Talent sustainability is a reflection of how effectively an organization can attract, develop and retain people. We’re dedicated to being a world-class employer for talented individuals across all our markets and a place where people can unlock their full potential.
