Since 2014, we have moved from publishing standalone sustainability reports to embedding this content across our Annual Report and Accounts. We continue to look for ways to further integrate our reporting and articulate how we are creating and maintaining value.
“As a bank operating across 68 countries with a focus on Asia, Africa and the Middle East, we have long recognised the role we can play in promoting economic and social development in our markets, through our core financial objective of supporting businesses to drive commerce and investment. Integrated reporting provides us with the tools we need to articulate the value we create for our diverse stakeholders.”
