Our basis for
Reporting and Assurance

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, 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 Code of Ethics reflect the UNGC.

Non-financial reporting

Reporting on non-financial performance across customers, people, community investment and environment can be found in the specific sections of our material issues section.

Socially responsible investment

We have been included in the FTSE4Good index. 


Our environmental data has been reviewed by Be Sustainable Limited.
Our community data is reported in line with the London Benchmarking Group methodology.
