Certification story

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.
