At RBS, sustainability means operating with integrity and openness, and playing our part in addressing society’s challenges. This understanding is shaping RBS’s community investment plans in the countries in which we operate.
We have made a commitment to build a stronger RBS, changing our business to make it easier for our customers to do business with us. Continuing to meet our responsibility to society, we will manage our direct and indirect operational impact, and contribute to sustainable and responsible growth. For example, the RBS Americas headquarters building in Stamford, was recognized by Business New Haven for its environmentally responsible features, receiving a four-star rating for its food service facility, the first such rating to be awarded by the Green Restaurant Association in the US.
Transforming our business depends on a strong and engaged workforce, so we must make RBS a great place to work. As well as managing and reducing our own impact on the environment, we are helping our clients to invest in greener, cleaner energy sources.
