ESG Resource Hub

Barclays ESG Resource Hub provides a central website page consisting of detailed technical information, disclosures and our position statements on environmental, social and governance matters. It is intended to be relevant for analysts, ESG investors, rating agencies, suppliers, clients and all other stakeholders.

The way we consider Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria is integral to what we do at Barclays. We are working to support and deliver for our customers, client and shareholders to create long-term sustainable value. We believe that we can be a real force for good, and that includes a responsibility to be transparent about our ambitions and our progress. Our Purpose, Values and Mindset underpin our strategy and our approach is informed by our engagement with our stakeholders, including with customers and clients, colleagues, investors, regulators and wider society. 

Barclays supports efforts to further enhance ESG reporting and advocates for improved consistency across the industry across disclosures and ESG ratings and benchmarks. We were one of the founding signatories of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB) since 2019. We provide additional information online. including reporting indices with reference to the relevant sector guidelines from the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

We believe that comprehensive, robust and comparable disclosures are essential to enabling stakeholders to understand our activity and progress. We participate in a range of regional and global industry efforts to promote increased harmonisation on data, taxonomies and disclosures. As reporting standards develop and begin to be implemented across jurisdictions, we will continue to evolve our approach to ESG disclosures in line with regulatory guidance and market practice.
