The Water Challenge team produced one of the most widely read Barclays research reports of 2017, highlighting how the energy industry can help protect water resources. The report, The Water Challenge, Preserving a Global Resource, was published in partnership with Columbia University. The report analyses financial and technical solutions the energy industry can use to lower water-related costs and improve its fresh-water footprint, featuring case studies of companies improving outcomes as a result of these innovative solutions and partnerships.
Citizenship can take many different forms – from supporting entrepreneurs to helping young people develop their employment skills. The annual Barclays Citizenship Awards recognise those colleagues who make that difference and create opportunities to rise.
In 2018, we received over 550 nominations for the Citizenship Awards, celebrating the vast and outstanding Citizenship work of our employees and their contributions, not just to our customers and clients, but in helping to find ways in which to drive economic, environmental and social prosperity.
