The Good Business Charter (GBC) today announced that TSB Bank is the first high street retail bank to join its leading responsible business accreditation scheme.
The achievement recognises TSB for paying its fair share of tax, treating employees fairly, paying suppliers promptly and contributing to the UK’s target of net zero emissions by 2050.
This endorsement from GBC coincides with the launch of TSB’s responsible business strategy, the “Do What Matters Plan”, and acts as an independent “rubber stamp” that TSB is serious about doing business in the right way.
Jenny Herrera, CEO of the Good Business Foundation, said: “We are so pleased to welcome TSB as a member of the Good Business Charter. Banks play an integral role to how we operate as a society and TSB’s Do What Matters Plan is a robust set of commitments that embody the Good Business Charter values.
“As we seek to #BuildBackBetter following coronavirus, people are looking even more closely at who they work for, who they buy from, and who they bank with. The value of receiving recognition for being a responsible business has never been higher. We hope the commitment will inspire others to follow TSB’s lead.”
Debbie Crosbie, CEO of TSB, added: “‘We know that people want businesses to operate to the highest ethical standards. That’s why it’s so important to be accredited by the Good Business Charter.
“It’s recognition of the work we already do and underlines the importance of our Do What Matters Plan and the difference that TSB wants to make over the next three years.”
