A sustainable and responsible approach to doing business is integral to everything we do.
We aim to Help Britain Prosper by operating as a responsible, sustainable and inclusive Group. This underpins our purpose and strategy.
Our focus in 2019
We recognise that we have a responsibility to help address the economic, social and environmental challenges that the UK faces, and we manage this through our Helping Britain Prosper plan.
Revised annually, the plan focuses on areas in which we can make the biggest difference. In 2018, we set specific targets aligned to our 3 year strategy, and highlighted six priority areas: supporting housing and business growth, helping people save for the future, enhancing digital capability, tackling social disadvantage and championing inclusion and diversity.
For 2019, we’re also prioritising actions to help the UK transition to a low carbon economy .
We’re helping people tackle the issues that really matter to them - buying a home, saving for later life, or building their digital skills.Read more
