Nationwide Building Society
Nationwide is the world’s largest building society. It is owned by its 16 million members and exists to serve their needs. The Society is one of the UK’s largest providers for mortgages, savings and current accounts, as well as being a major provider of ISAs, credit cards, personal loans, insurance and investments.
As a mutual organisation, Nationwide Building Society uses its unique position to help rebuild society by making a positive difference to the lives of its members and the communities in which they live. It is why Nationwide still values a branch network, supports communities through charitable grants, and places a premium on helping people thrive financially – whether helping them into a home of their own or giving them the financial support they need. Taking a stand and making a difference is what sets Nationwide apart. None of which would be possible without the dedicated service of its 18,000 employees.

Smart Freight Centre

Our vision is ‘Smart Freight’: an efficient and zero-emissions global logistics sector – contributing to Paris Agreement climate targets and Sustainable Development Goals.
Our mission is to bring together the global logistics community through our Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) to work towards this vision. We believe that increased collaboration and transparency will mobilize companies to take climate action to reduce the greenhouse gas and pollution impact arising from global freight.
Our goal is that 100+ multinationals reduce at least 30% of logistics emissions by 2030 compared to 2015 across their global logistics supply chains reach net-zero emissions by 2050. Concretely this means at least 80 million tonnes annual CO2 e emission reductions by 2030.
Our main role is to advise companies on how to develop and implement their company-specific Sustainable Logistics Roadmap using the four ‘Smart Freight Leadership’ steps: report, set targets, reduce and collaborate.
To ensure sector-wide uptake of GHG disclosure and climate action, SFC also plays an advocacy role and raises awareness among companies and other relevant stakeholders.
We put this into practice through four activities:
- Guide multinationals and their suppliers to develop and implement Sustainable Logistics Roadmaps, through guidelines, training and advice
- Remove key business barriers through GLEC projects that results in guidelines that work for industry, the first of which was the GLEC Framework
- Advocacy with governments and organizations for supportive policy, programs and strategies in order to scale industry action
- Raise awareness through events, workshops and webinars and by publishing stories of companies that demonstrate leadership
