In 2016, Natwest Group [formely RBS] was searching for a comprehensive approach to managing energy performance and environmental reporting. The company aimed to:
- Reduce energy consumption and cost
- Improve data quality and reporting accuracy.
- Improve engagement with both internal and external stakeholders
Natwest Group was looking for assistance and tools to enable them to adopt a data-driven approach, the back bone of which would be reliable and robust data. Their incumbent systems and approaches which included a reliance on spreadsheets, multiple data systems and suppliers, were leading to slow reporting and problems with data integrity.
The Natwest Group is a UK-based multinational banking and financial services company headquartered in Edinburgh with circa 2,776 sites in the UK including retail branches, data centres, processing centres and offices. Natwest Group [formerly Royal Bank of Scotland plc] has made great strides in their goal of being a sustainable bank and been the recipient of numerous awards, such as Sustainability Team of the Year in 2017 and specific recognition for their staff engagement programme.
