Supporting Green Ambitions

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.

To ensure that our clients have access to financing that places green principles at its core and provides a renowned ‘green’ accreditation, we have developed a Green Product Framework PDF† (585KB - opens in a new window) in conjunction with Sustainalytics^ (opens in a new window), a leading global provider of environmental, social and corporate governance research and ratings.

Green Product Framework

This custom impact eligibility structure identifies projects and activities that have a positive environmental impact, including:

Energy efficiency

Greenhouse gas emission reduction that is not attained through energy efficiency

Green transport

Renewable energy

Sustainable food, agriculture and forestry

Waste management

Our green products

Financing options available include:

  • Green Asset Finance - Supports the finance of green assets through lease purchase, finance and operating leases
  • Green Loans - Provides funding for a variety of green and energy-efficiency projects
  • Innovation Finance - Offers small to medium-sized UK businesses financing of up to £5m at a competitive rate to support Green business innovation. Loans offered under this scheme are supported by the InnovFin SME Guarantee facility with the financial backing of the European Investment Fund1
  • Green Deposits - Allows our largest clients the ability to earmark their cash balances against the green assets held on Barclays’ balance sheet
  • Green Trade Loans - Green trade loans support the green working capital needs of clients from procurement through to final sale of goods. By securing funding from the initial purchase until final payment is received, clients can trade with confidence and plan and manage their cash-flow more accurately.
