Argentex, a team of highly experienced market professionals from account management, analysis and trading, through to settlements and compliance with vast experience of global transactions, has achieved Planet Mark certification.
Achieving Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in environmental policies in its business operations and engaging its stakeholders. Over the next year, the company will be working towards reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others.
The company has also measured its social value contributions amounting to £89,311. This refers to the net social and environmental benefits generated by its team. Measuring its social value gives a holistic insight into its positive contributions to not only the environment but also to society, demonstrating its commitment to meaningfully contribute to a better planet for all.
“I am so pleased with the progress made by Argentex this year. At this year’s COP27, there has been an enormous focus on sustainable finance, so Argentex’s sustainable progress could not come at a better time. The team has worked hard to put sustainable initiatives in place, and the results are plain to see. Well done to all involved.”
The finance sector has a huge role to play in a sustainable transition. From committing to sustainable operations in offices and business practices to re-evaluating the value of high carbon investments, the flow of finance can be an important catalyst to create a low emissions world. Finance firms must stay at the forefront of innovation, looking for novel ways to create capital that invests in resilient markets, in order to thrive in the transition to a sustainable economy.
To recertify next year Argentex must reduce emissions by 2.5%.
A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
