about Standard Chartered

Despite its British base, Standard Chartered has few customers in the United Kingdom. Ninety percent of its profits come from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Its operations lie predominantly in former British colonies, though over the past two decades it has now expanded operations into 70 countries and territories. Standard Chartered offers a full range of banking products to consumers, private clients and business, including an extensive Islamic banking operation.

On 31 December 2015 Standard Chartered controlled assets worth USD640.48 billion.

Banking while Borneo burns: top five banks fuelling climate change
Oct 02, 2013 - The Global Justice Now (formerly World Development Movement) calling for UK companies to make public the carbon emissions of the fossil fuel extraction they finance, as well as having to report their direct carbon emissions. Under new rules coming into force on October 1 2013, firms must disclose information such as energy use and petrol consumption in their annual reports. But the UK's top five banks helped fossil fuel companies raise GBP170 billion between 2010 and 2012. This must be limited if we are to avoid catastrophic climate change.
