Sustainability Review 2007
Leading the way
in Asia, Africa and the Middle East
Our aim in building a sustainable business is to deliver value to customers and shareholders whilst helping to address the significant social, economic and environmental issues the world is facing. Standard Chartered is well placed to achieve this in Asia, Africa and the Middle East through its longstanding relationships and deep involvement in these regions.
Meeting the challenge
In our markets lie the greatest social and environmental risks and also the greatest opportunities for new solutions, services and ways to grow our business.
Our seven sustainable business priorities
We can provide services that help protect the environment, spread the social benefits of economic growth and contribute to better governance. We have identified seven inter-connected sustainable business priorities for achieving this.
We have a key role to play in stimulating economic and social development through the services we provide and by being a force for good. The success of our business depends on this.
