Volunteering and charitable donations

Standard Life Aberdeen operates in partnership with charities in the local communities in which we operate, nationally in the UK, and globally with a focus on emerging markets. Our funding is directed to have a meaningful and measurable impact that aligns with the strategic interest of our business. We deliberately seek partnerships that engage our employees and provide an opportunity for them to use their time and skills to create additional value. In support of this, we provide three paid days' volunteering leave for our people.
