Sustainable Green Solutions

Barclays is dedicated to helping companies take action to address the environmental and sustainability challenges facing our planet. To this end, we offer a wide range of flexible financing to support your company's green agenda.

Barclays Sustainable Finance Framework

The Barclays Sustainable Finance Framework sets out our methodology for classifying financing as sustainable and serves as the basis for tracking and disclosing our performance against our commitments. We are committed to being transparent about our definitions and approach. Barclays has drawn on industry guidelines and principles in developing this Framework in collaboration with Sustainalytics to ensure it reflects current market practice. Sustainalytics^ is a Morningstar company, and a leading independent ESG and corporate governance research, ratings and analytics firm that supports investors around the world with the development and implementation of responsible investment strategies.

Barclays Sustainable Residential Development Framework

To supplement our Sustainable Finance Framework, we have now also produced our Sustainable Residential Development Framework (‘SRDF’) to enable the classification and tracking of performance of our green and sustainability-linked residential development loans to our Corporate Banking real estate clients.
