Finance and banking can play a critical role as a key enabler of social and economic progress when done in the right way – creating inclusive prosperity. This means considering how our day-to-day decisions impact on broader society and how we can create innovative products, services and solutions that deliver societal and business value – not one or the other.
Barclays has always played a part in driving economic growth and societal progress. And today, we see increasing opportunity to play a pivotal role in fostering innovation and facilitating inclusive, shared growth for all – now and as we develop the future of banking.
Our Shared Growth Ambition is underpinned by the way we do business. We continue to have performance targets– reducing our carbon emissions by 30% by 2018, ensuring that we pay our suppliers on time and that our colleagues attest to our global Code of Conduct.
