TSB has joined the Good Business Charter’s (GBC) responsible business accreditation scheme, making it the first high street bank to do so.
The achievement recognises TSB for contributing to the UK’s target of net zero emissions by 2050, as well as paying its fair share of tax, treating its employees fairly and paying its suppliers promptly.
Jenny Herrera, Chief Executive of the Good Business Foundation, said: “We are so pleased to welcome TSB as a member of the Good Business Charter. Banks play an integral role as to how we operate as a society and TSB’s Do What Matters Plan is a robust set of commitments that embody the Good Business Charter values.
“As we seek to #BuildBackBetter following coronavirus, people are looking even more closely at who they work for, who they buy from, and who they bank with. The value of receiving recognition for being a responsible business has never been higher. We hope the commitment will inspire others to follow TSB’s lead.”
Lloyds Banking Group has pledged to at least halve the carbon emissions it finances by 2030.
