The Group's climate transition plan delineates the measures to be undertaken to achieve net-zero emissions across its operations, supply chain, and the emissions financed by the Bank. Informed by guidance from the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) and Transition Plan Taskforce (TPT), as well as the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), the climate transition plan reflects a comprehensive and strategic approach to address climate-related challenges in alignment with established industry guidelines.

The company has outlined various emission reduction ambitions and targets throughout its Group as part of its commitment to decarbonize its business in alignment with the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C. These initiatives include reducing the carbon emissions financed by the company by more than 50% by 2030, halving the carbon footprint of its investments by 2030, and achieving a 50% reduction in carbon emissions generated through the supply chain by 2030. Additionally, the company aims to achieve net-zero carbon operations by 2030, with a commitment to reducing direct carbon emissions by a minimum of 75% in its own operations. This involves a 50% reduction in energy consumption across its operations and limiting travel-related carbon emissions by 50% compared to a pre-COVID-19 baseline of 2018/19. These comprehensive goals underscore the company's dedication to sustainable practices and environmental responsibility.

Furthermore, the commitment to purchasing 100% renewable electricity will persist, with a strategic focus on increasing the share of electricity directly sourced from renewable projects or generated on-site to at least 60% by 2025.
