Corporate social responsibility

At NS&I, we see sustainability as an essential part of what makes us an efficient and responsible business and recognise the need to adapt to climate change. We have made continued progress towards our medium-term carbon reduction plan this year under which we already exceed government sustainability targets. To ensure sustainability is fully embedded within our operations and governance structure we have developed a People and Corporate Social Responsibility Risk Policy within our overall risk management framework.

The carbon reduction plan developed with the support of the Carbon Trust sets out how, against the 2009-10 baseline, we will reduce our carbon emissions by over 7,000 tonnes a year from the end of March 2015. This equates to over 50% of our emissions, significantly ahead of both our own initial target and those set centrally by government. The plan was developed as part of our participation in the pilot of the carbon management programme for central government supported by the Carbon Trust, which seeks to reduce carbon emissions across government. NS&I was one of 20 organisations that chose to participate in the programme.
