Lloyds offer commercial and personal banking and are traditionally one of the ‘Big Four’. Read more about their published ethical investment policy here.
Lloyds do not exclude funding for nuclear weapons components and sites, and only refuse to do nuclear weapons business outside the UK, US, and France.
Lloyds exclude doing business with nuclear weapons producers except for programmes in the US, UK, and France (conveniently, where the vast majority of the nuclear weapons business is located). They do not exclude funding for nuclear weapons components and sites, and only have a very brief statement on the Defence sector on their website.
Don’t think this is good enough? Get in contact with Lloyds to tell them you want them to be more transparent, more ethical, and more comprehensive in their policy on controversial weapons.
