Standard Chartered

Standard Chartered are committed to reducing our impact on the environment, and our actions and targets include:

  • To facilitate and finance USD35 billion of clean tech and renewables between 2020 and the end of 2024
  • We are taking steps to measure, manage and ultimately reduce the emissions related to our activities and those related to the financing of our clients
  • Having previously announced we will not finance new fired coal plants, we are taking further action and will only support clients who actively transition their business to generate less than 10% of earnings from thermal coal by 2030
  • Our latest Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (‘TCFD’) report, details our progress against our commitment to align our lending portfolio with the goals set by the Paris Agreement
