NatWest wants to deliver a more sustainable economy and future for the customers and communities we serve
Central to achieving sustainable growth is our ability to support our customers in their transition towards net zero.
We are helping our customers to achieve their climate and sustainability ambitions: whether it is by supporting our UK mortgage customers to increase the energy efficiency of their homes, or by delivering the finance to enable sustainable business solutions.
By helping more families and businesses to make moves like these now, NatWest Group can accelerate the shift to a sustainable economy.
Supply Chain Sustainability School Partnership
The NatWest Group is one of the UK’s largest lenders and therefore recognise that we have a vital role to play in supporting consumers and businesses in transitioning to become more energy efficient.
The opportunity that the transition to net zero presents to businesses is clear. With the right support, the UK’s SMEs could create up to 130,000 new jobs, produce around 30,000 new businesses and deliver an estimated £160 billion revenue opportunity for the UK economy through the transition to net zero.
We are proud to partner with the Supply Chain Sustainability School on their retrofit programme. Improving energy efficiency makes sense for households and businesses longer term. With increasingly stringent building standards coming into place, retrofitting can help future proof against energy compliance requirements.

Why a Partner?
NatWest is partnering with Supply Chain Sustainability School to become the first partner from within the finance sector. Together, we possess a shared ambition of addressing climate change through building the skills the construction industry needs to retrofit the UK’s existing housing stock and non-residential buildings. Retrofitting can play a key role in supporting households and commercial buildings up and down the UK to act on energy efficiency and help the UK to achieve its net zero ambitions.
At NatWest Group we want to deliver a more sustainable economy and future for the customers and communities we serve, which is why addressing climate change is a strategic priority for the bank.
Our collaboration with Supply Chain Sustainability School will help cultivate a more mature retrofit supply chain, share knowledge, and build the skills needed to retrofit homes and buildings across the UK.
“As one of the largest lenders in the UK, we have a key role to play in supporting consumers and businesses in transitioning to more energy efficient homes and buildings. Decarbonising properties will require retrofitting existing buildings to increase their energy efficiency and constructing new energy efficient buildings. Our collaboration with the Supply Chain Sustainability School will help cultivate a more mature retrofit supply chain, share knowledge and build the skills needed to retrofit homes and buildings across the UK.”James Close, Head of Climate Change at NatWest Group
