External commitments and reporting standards

A strategic priority of NatWest Group is to be powered by partnerships, and progress across our three focus areas can only be achieved with collaboration.

Race to zero

NatWest Group has become one of 43 founder banks to join the Net Zero Banking Alliance and is proud to be a member of the new Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) a coalition of over 160 financial services companies that are part of the UN Race to Zero campaign. The Alliance have pledged to work together to help deliver the Paris Agreement by using science-based guidelines to reach net zero emissions by 2050 with 2030 interim targets.
