United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

NatWest Group became one of the Founding Signatories of the UN Principles for Responsible Banking in 2019, committing to aligning our strategy to the 2015 Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

"We’re very conscious of our obligations under the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We recognise the importance of understanding the implications of climate change, and what that will do to our business and to the business of our customers. We have a strong track record in alternative energy projects. And overall we are working to build a more sustainable bank in a very broad societal, economic and environmental context."

Sir Howard Davies, Chairman

"We recognise that we will need to think differently to rise to the challenge of the Global Goals. We are committed to working collaboratively and exploring options with our partners, stakeholders and peers to achieve a better future for everyone."

Kirsty Britz, Director of Sustainable Banking
