I look forward to continuing to work with CdR Capital to help them further their environmental goals.”
Through Planet Mark, the company has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.
It is also helping the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.
The finance industry can help support a sustainable transition. As well as monitoring and reducing in-house emissions, the industry can promote sustainability across all industries by investing in environmentally responsible sources. With proper environmental risk analysis, sustainable investment can also prove to be a responsible decision for the business, as well as for the planet.
To recertify next year CdR Capital must reduce emissions by 2.5%.
A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
