SEE our Impact
Standard Bank has identified seven areas in which we believe we can best achieve our purpose, to drive Africa’s growth, while making a substantial positive impact on society, the economy and the environment.
We selected these areas based on their relevance to our core business as a provider of financial products and services, and the priority needs of Africa’s people, businesses and economies.
Our thinking has been informed by the priority issues and targets contained in the United National Sustainable Development Goals, the African Union's Agenda 2063, as well as the various national development plans and policies of the countries in Africa in which we operate. This includes the Nationally Determined Contributions to lowering carbon emissions in line with the Paris Agreement.
