At Barclays we firmly believe that what is being measured is being managed, hence, our continuous effort at improving and refining our non-financial reporting.
We use a variety of tools to track and measure our performance and collect both quantitative and qualitative information to get the full picture. We also committed to maintaining a robust internal and external assurance process for our key metrics, ensuring that we have strong controls and clear data management in place.
Shared Growth Ambition Reporting Framework
Following the introduction of the Shared Growth Ambition, we have developed Barclays’ Shared Growth Ambition Reporting Framework (PDF 3.2MB) which sets out the definitions and measurement methodology for our key performance metrics in more detail.
Impact Eligibility Framework
We commissioned Sustainalytics, a global provider of ESG and corporate governance research, ratings and analytics, to help develop the Impact Eligibility Framework (PDF 1.9MB). It provides a process for Barclays to identify positive environmental and social transactions across the organisation, and to track their associated financing volumes.
Focusing on impact
Impact can be challenging to understand and measure, particularly when we try to assess portfolio-level outcomes instead of individual initiatives. We are committed to working with internal and external partners to develop new tools and methods to best capture and contribute to the impact of our strategy.
