• Where net zero is getting nearer

Here in the UK and around the globe, we’re contributing to a more sustainable world.

First green bond for UK government

In 2021 we helped the UK government raise £10bn from UK and international investors to fund its Green Financing Programme, through the UK’s first sovereign green bond. This transaction established green gilts as a sustainable source of finance for the UK’s most urgent environmental priorities.

€500bn in sustainable finance by 2025

We’re playing our part in the transition to a sustainable and climate-neutral economy by helping companies in the UK access the finance they need to transform their businesses. The sustainability-linked loan we arranged for British Airways aims to accelerate greener air travel through incentives that reward fuel efficiency and reductions in carbon emissions.

91% renewable energy

We minimise the environmental impact of our business by using energy and other resources as efficiently and responsibly as possible, and offset the emissions we can’t reduce. We buy renewable power wherever we can. Currently, 91% of the electricity used by Deutsche Bank worldwide is from renewable sources.
