Doing what matters for the environment


The environmental angle is much newer for us, but there’s a huge need to drive this forward as it’s an increasingly important consideration for customers, colleagues and a range of stakeholders, including regulators. 
  • We’ve committed to reducing the environmental impact of our own operations by becoming net zero no later than 2030.

  • In 2020 we began implementing our net zero plan and achieved our DWMP goal of sourcing 100% of our electricity coming from renewable sources. This one change reduces our net carbon emissions by 66% to an estimated 2.6k tons in 2021.

  • We baselined our 2020 carbon for Scope 1 and 2 at 8.2k tonnes, down from 10.2k tonnes in 2019.

  • We are also committed to become accredited by the Science Based Targets initiative, which sets best practice and reviews businesses’ plans to align with the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

Creating a more environmentally focused workforce at TSB

“I’m a member of the Green Team at TSB, a colleague environmental network which brings people together from across the business to support the environment pillar of our Do What Matters Plan.
“I love the idea of an active army of likeminded people working to help the environment in lots of different ways. It fits in perfectly with my values and means I can make a difference in my workplace as well as outside of work.
“I’m proud that TSB have taken steps in the right direction and committed to a pathway to net zero. And I look forward to being part of the solution, not the problem.

Helping our customers reduce their impact on the environment

In June 2021, we launched our green additional borrowing mortgage products to help homeowners reduce their carbon footprint. We’ve designed them to encourage people to make their homes environmentally friendly. Customers benefit from cheaper rates for green home improvements.

Dr Rhian-Mari Thomas OBE, Chief Executive of the Green Finance Institute said:

“Innovation and transparency will be essential for scaling-up the green mortgage market and accelerating the decarbonisation of UK homes. Today’s announcement about the launch of TSB’s Green Additional Borrowing mortgages – which align with the industry-backed Green Home Finance Principles, established by the Green Finance Institute – is a welcome contribution to creating a thriving market for green mortgages in the UK.”

We’re planting thousands of trees to offset house moves. When it comes to the environment, moving home leaves a sizeable carbon footprint. For starters, a typical removal lorry emits up to 1.3kg CO2 per mile. Then there’s all the packaging.

So, we’re doing something about it. To help our customers offset their carbon footprint, we’ve asked Eforests to plant a tree for every home move where a TSB mortgage is provided. So far, we’ve planted almost 23,000 trees across England, Scotland and Wales.
