Environmental, social and governance information
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters are an integral part of our strategy at Lloyds Banking Group.
With our clear purpose of Helping Britain Prosper and the Group’s unique position at the heart of the UK economy, we embrace our responsibility to help address some of the economic, social and environmental challenges that the UK faces.
We recognise that the focus of the Group’s purpose must evolve in response to the current environment and changing customer needs and expectations, and will now focus on Helping Britain Recover.
We have identified five priority areas based on where we believe we can make the most difference and which are fully embedded in our Group strategy.
Our Covid-19 response
Customers remain a priority throughout this crisis and beyond. Working closely with the UK Government and our regulators, we have continued to support our retail, small business and commercial customers through a comprehensive and unprecedented range of flexible measures.
As one of the UK’s largest corporate donors, we use our scale to reach people in communities across the country. Our four independent charitable Foundations are critical to our vision of tackling social disadvantage by partnering with local charities to help overcome complex social issues.
We are supporting our communities in a number of different ways, including colleague volunteering, support for community organisations, donations to our independent Foundations, and fundraising for our charity partner, Mental Health UK. Find out more about how we're supporting communities.
We want to ensure that we source the products and services we buy in a responsible and sustainable manner and we want our suppliers to share in our purpose. Read here about the key social, ethical and environmental values that we want our suppliers to abide by, as set out in our code of supplier responsibility.
