"I’ve made a number of these choices in recent years, from going vegetarian to cutting back on using plastic as much as I can, to saving for an electric car. "

Charlotte feels hugely passionate about supporting the societal transition to a low carbon economy.

When it comes to tackling the climate crisis, at Lloyds Banking Group we understand that each small change we make today can have a positive impact in the future.

That’s why, as part of our own commitment1 to reducing the way we finance carbon by more than 50% by 2030, we’re challenging companies we invest in right now to adopt cleaner, more sustainable business practices.

“I’ve led our property design team for almost a year now, and it’s a job I really love. I get a lot of fulfilment from our purpose to reduce the carbon footprint of our buildings and support our colleagues to make sustainable changes. I’ve made some new habits of my own recently, like taking the train rather than flying and eating less meat. This job lets me multiply the potential impact of those actions by 65000 by supporting others to make changes to how they live and work.

The colleague speaking at the meeting went on to explain how, with the power of the investments we manage on behalf of our pension customers, we could save the planet and the people on it – and I knew I had to get involved.
