Sustainable development is necessary to secure a future that meets our current needs as well as the needs of future generations. This is why sustainability is a key pillar of AIB UK’s business strategy – we are keenly aware of our role to engage and support our customers and other stakeholders to achieve a more sustainable tomorrow.
Global climate extremes are now occurring at a rate unlike any we have encountered in our lifetime, so we continue to embed sustainability across the organisation to advance our internal transformation while supporting the transition to a low carbon economy for our customers.
We pledge to DO MORE to be a responsible and sustainable business in the communities and businesses we support across Northern Ireland and Great Britain.

Sustainable Communities Strategy & Progress
Climate & Environment
We’re reducing our own carbon footprint and committing to being Net Zero by 2030. We’re supporting our customers and communities in their transition to a low-carbon economy with an ambition that green and transition products will account for 70% of all new lending by 2030.
Economic & Social Inclusion
We aspire to contribute and advocate for a fairer society that is socially and economically inclusive. We do this by providing finance for social housing, supporting charities through our Community Fund, and by developing partnerships with organisations that support our customers’ interests and needs.
Future Proof Business
Our future sustainability depends on our ongoing investment in our business, people and processes. We want to provide positive experiences for all our customers by creating an attractive place to work for our staff and investing in the resilience of our business. We are focused on keeping our systems resilient and our data secure.
