Certification story

Trafalgar House Pensions Administration, a supplier of market-leading third-party pensions administration services to all types of occupational pension schemes, has achieved Planet Mark certification. 

Achieving the Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders. 

This is Trafalgar House Pensions Administration’s third year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. Since certifying to Planet Mark, the company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.

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 directly supports the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

It has also helped 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.

Steve Malkin
CEO
Planet Mark
“I’m so pleased to see Trafalgar House’s second year certification results. The reduction in carbon is pleasing to see, and is a reflection of all the hard work done across the whole team this past year. The organisation is dedicated to cutting carbon, and this is a reassurance to the growing number of customers who are concerned about the sustainability of their investments.”

Certification story

Trafalgar Square believes in a moral responsibility to take the necessary steps to lessen its carbon footprint. From taking steps to reduce the excess production paper waste in the pensions industry and smarter travel policies to wider questions of social and corporate governance policies, the company makes efforts to embody sustainability in as many decisions as possible. Planet Mark certification offers a route-map to continuous sustainable improvement through the annual measurement and reduction of carbon emissions.

Pension holders increasingly want to know the environmental impact of their pension investments. New rules in 2019 required pension funds with more than 100 members to consider environmental and social factors when making investment decisions. Since then, sustainability has gone from a nice-to-have to an essential part of the business. Whether it be for economic or planetary reasoning, pension providers must examine their supply chain’s carbon footprint. 

Future targets

Reduce carbon footprint by 5% annually

As part of the Planet Mark certification, Trafalgar House has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
