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 and deposits to support your company's green agenda.

The environmental impact of climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing the world today.

 

Regulatory, reputational and commercial drivers are forcing businesses to engage with the significant risks and opportunities this presents.

 

Going green can help an organisation reduce costs, encourage innovation and differentiate itself from competitors.

 

At Barclays, we are committed to playing a leading role in the transition towards a sustainable environment and low carbon global economy.

 

To ensure clients have access to finance that places green principles at its core and provides clear, transparent guidance and accreditation, we have developed our market-leading Green Product Framework in conjunction with Sustainalytics, a leading global provider of environmental, social and corporate governance research and ratings.

 

This framework identifies projects and activities that have a positive environmental impact. These projects are eligible for Barclays green solutions financing options, including: Green Asset Finance, Green Loans, Green Deposits and Green Trade Loans.
