Our Environment, Social and Governance plan

We recognise that we play an important role in helping to protect the environment and support social initiatives whilst making sure our business is well governed. That is why we have developed our ESG plan, a copy of which can be found below. Our plan aims to preserve the measures we already have in place and set ambitious targets for the next year and beyond.

Environment

We take our environmental responsibilities seriously, and recognise that we can take action both as a company, and on an individual basis, to help protect our environment. For example, the electricity in both our Basingstoke and London offices is from renewable sources.

Social

The social health of our staff, business partners and our local community is a key consideration for Castle Trust Bank. We believe in a fair and supportive society, and want to contribute to that where we are able to do so. For example, we are a signatory to HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter, which aims to improve gender balance in senior management.

Governance

We recognise the importance and value of strong governance in all areas of our business, and will continue to ensure that all areas continue to have appropriate controls. For example, our board oversees the development and execution of our ESG plan. Our latest plan was reviewed, challenged and approved by the Board in March 2022.

Destination Basingstoke

The majority of our operations are in Basingstoke. Most of our c.200 colleagues live and work in the district of Basingstoke and Deane. We want Castle Trust Bank to be a great place to work and we know colleagues want to live in a vibrant community. We are proud of our partnership with a not-for-profit community events company, Destination Basingstoke, who deliver a range of cultural events in Basingstoke. About 15% of colleagues either cheered or ran the Basingstoke 5k in April. There are many more community events planned for this year including Octoberfest, The Place to Be Proud Of Awards to recognise individuals who go above and beyond for their community, and the Basingstoke Half Marathon.

Our social activities

We maintain an active social calendar within the business with events ranging from quizzes and summer barbecues to regular cake bakes.

A good example is when we held a Cake Bake at our Basingstoke and London offices at the end of May 2022 to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Our colleagues showed just how creative they are!
