We aim to be open and transparent in our reporting and take part in a range of non-financial reporting initiatives
International Integrated Reporting Framework
We utilise the principles of the International IR Framework in the preparation of our Annual Report and Accounts. IR applies principles and concepts that are focused on bringing greater cohesion and efficiency to the reporting process, and adopting 'integrated thinking' as a way of breaking down internal silos and reducing duplication. It improves the quality of information available to providers of financial capital to enable a more efficient and productive allocation of capital.
UN Global Compact
We participate in the UN Global Compact (UNGC), a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally-accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. Our values and sustainability principles reflect the UNGC.

Reporting on non-financial performance across customers, people, community investment and environment can be found in the specific sections of Sustainability in practice. Full details of these measures (i.e. scope, definitions and how we’ve decided what to report) are included in our Basis of reporting.
Socially responsible investment
We have been included in the FTSE4Good index for the past four years, and have also commissioned our own external benchmarking based on the criteria used for the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. We participate annually in the Carbon Disclosure Project. See Benchmarking and awards.
