........We report our sustainability performance each year as part of the RBS Strategic Banking Report 2018. This shorter report draws out some of the key areas of RBS’ sustainability performance in 2018.
Recent key achievements for us in 2019 were being shortlisted for Business in the Community’s Responsible Company of the Year award and being one of only four companies in Northern Ireland which achieved Gold Standard in Business in the Community’s CORE Accreditation. We also maintained our Diversity Charter Mark.
We’re proud of these achievements, but not complacent about the challenges ahead given the rapid changes impacting our sector through technology innovation, shifting consumer trends, climate change and changing demographics. To run a sustainable business we also need to focus on the future, anticipate these challenges and take action to address them. We’re actively embracing innovation in all its forms to create value for our customers, so that we can meet their needs sustainably in the future. We’re also committed to running our business in a responsible, open and transparent way as our stakeholders expect us to do.
