In 2020, we set out an ambitious plan to prioritise financing and investment that supports the transition to a net zero global economy – and helps to build a thriving, resilient future for society and businesses. Our plan has three parts:
Our climate strategy is part of our broader commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
We believe that improving our ESG performance is crucial to our long-term success. We publish regular updates and set targets to guide how we do business. In addition to our climate ambitions, these include increasing the representation of women in senior roles, improving customer satisfaction, and upholding high standards of conduct worldwide.
The long-term incentive scorecards of our executive Directors (three-year performance period to the end of December 2023) have a 25 per cent weighting for targets aligned to our climate ambitions.
