1 June 2015 – In April, the Banking Environment Initiative (BEI) welcomed its newest member, Royal Bank of Scotland, to its membership of 11 global banks working to lead the banking industry in directing capital towards socially and environmentally sustainable economic development.

Sefton Laing, Head of Sustainability Services at RBS said:

"RBS has a clear ambition to be number one for customer service, trust and advocacy in each of our main business areas by 2020. Achieving this ambition depends in large part on our ability to demonstrate that we are a responsible company doing business in a sustainable way.

Our success rests on the success of our customers, and our purpose is to serve our customers well. Joining the BEI feels like a natural move for us as we are closely aligned with one of the key principles of the BEI – that banks work for their customers.

We have already been involved in two key BEI projects: the Soft Commodities Compact and the 'Sustainable Shipment' Letter of Credit.  We are looking forward to collaborating with our peer BEI Members and engaging in further workstreams."
