Barclays has a clear sense of its business purpose: to help people achieve their ambitions – in the right way and our 2015 Citizenship Plan is our commitment to helping individual, businesses and communities.
The Barclays Citizenship Plan sets out how we will play our part in overcoming the challenges facing the global economy and in restoring confidence in the financial services sector. It is organised around the three pillars that we use to articulate what we mean by Citizenship:
- Access to financing: This helps to leverage capital for crucial social and environmental infrastructure, while giving us access to growing markets
- Access to financial and digital empowerment: This ensures customers and communities can benefit from financial and digital services, while helping us increase proficiency and engagement
- Access to employment: This addresses a major global challenge, while also building long-term demand for banking services.
