What are your company's CSR commitments?

BCB Group is committed to help tackle the climate crisis by reducing our impact and creating a positive change for our employees, customers, and the greater community. Our vision is to empower the global financial revolution through sustainable and innovative banking.

Why did you carry out a carbon assessment?

As the conversation around CSR continues to grow and our industry begins to pay more attention to environmental impact, we wanted to invest in responsible change. This carbon assessment provides a starting point for us to measure the commitments we’re making and allows us to attract top talent, reassure our partners who are concerned about their carbon footprint, and helps us lead our industry in a more sustainable direction.

Why choose Greenly ?
  • Because of their scientific & transparent approach to assessing carbon footprint, which is accredited by the ADEME (Agence pour la Transition Écologique)
  • Due to the strength of their measurement methodology covering scope 1,2,3 analysis & benchmarks; 
  • We liked their smart platform UI - including its integration with our existing tools; 
  • They offered the guidance and expertise to engage our employees in the approach.

What does your Carbon Footprint reveal

BCB Group’s carbon footprint takes into account direct and energy emissions (Scope 1 & 2) but also indirect emissions caused by service providers and services used by the company (Scope 3). Adding up all the emissions, BCB Group had a carbon footprint of 596t CO2e in 2021. 

This is equivalent to:

  • 338 Paris-New York round trips
  • The annual emissions of 60 British people
  • The amount of CO2 sequestered annually by 54 hectares of forest

What are the next steps ?

BCB’s climate strategy can be broken down into three pillars: 1) Measure and Reduce our Emissions, 2) Engage and Communicate with our Ecosystem, and 3) Contribute to Certified GHG Reduction/Sequestration Projects. Our immediate next steps are to establish a carbon reduction plan with specific targets, with the aim of reaching Net Zero by 2035. To do this we will work with Greenly and the Science-Based Targets Initiative to remove 90% or more of our emissions by this date.
