Why are these our values?
Our values were created by speaking with thousands of colleagues across the Group, informed by their views on our culture, actions we need to focus on, and what is most important for us to reward and recognise. We wanted to make sure our values would be meaningful and that our people could identify with them, at every level.
These values reflect our strategy and help to give colleagues the complete picture – like why we’re here, what we're aiming to do, and how we’ll work together to make it happen
- 20% of colleagues had their say by telling us which version of the values they preferred.
- 4 in 5 colleagues said they feel that our purpose and values are meaningful to them.
Our values in action
Putting people first
Our purpose is Helping Britain Prosper. We do this by creating a more sustainable and inclusive future for people and businesses, shaping finance as a force for good. Discover how we’re putting people first through our social sustainability work.
Enabling the transition to a low carbon economy is key to delivering on our purpose. We're committed to reducing the carbon emissions we finance to net zero by 2050 or sooner, and we're aiming to achieve net zero for our own operations by 2030.
Trusting each other
We pride ourselves on creating a great environment for colleagues to work in, one that’s inclusive and driven by our values. We know that people who can show up to work as themselves bring their best.
