Making sustainable changes
Naomi is helping to drive sustainable change within Lloyds Banking Group.
“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.
Lily, who can talk about recycling in three different languages, is helping the Scottish Widows pension scheme make more sustainable investments to ensure that our customers (and colleagues!) will be retiring into a greener future.
"I had my ‘oh crikey’ moment about the urgency of climate action in a pensions team meeting. As a 90s kid, the need to look after people and our planet had made an appearance throughout my education; I can talk about recycling in three languages and have been volunteering in a local charity shop since I moved to Scotland.
But we had always focussed on the need to conserve oil so that we didn’t run out of it – and yet here was a slide showing that if we use even one-fifth of the oil left on the planet, we will have produced more carbon dioxide than the Earth can handle. 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.
Financing a green future
As the UK’s largest financial services group, we can make a real difference to tackling climate change by helping to finance a greener future together. We think this will require new ways of living, working and investing for our business and our customers.
