Lloyds Banking Group's corporate strategy is to create value for shareholders by investing where it can make a real difference for customers, communities and colleagues.
In 2010 Lloyds carried out extensive stakeholder research into how its many stakeholder audiences perceive the Group - and how it meets its responsibilities to customers and communities. The report responds to the main questions and challenges raised by stakeholders during the process.
2010 highlights include the following:
a £60.6 billion reduction in our reliance on liquidity support from Government and central bank facilities (as at December 2010).
2020 environmental targets launched - including goals to reduce energy, paper, business travel, water and waste by 20% by 2020.
£79 billion of new lending extended to homeowners and business - including £11 billion for small and medium sized enterprises and £5 billion to first time home buyers.
£480 million given to the Group's charitable Foundations over the past 25 years.
£4 million 'Money for Life' financial capability programme launched.
600 Business & Environment Managers trained to help business customers manage environmental risks and seize emerging opportunities.
In 2010 Lloyds Banking Group achieved top positions in many of the CR benchmarks and indices.
