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.
This is Trafalgar House Pensions Administration’s second 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.
Trafalgar House Pensions Administration’s total carbon footprint in the year ending December 2020 was 8.7 tCO2e, a reduction of 68.2%. Trafalgar House Pensions Administration’s total carbon per employee in the year ending 2020 was 0.1 tCO2e, a reduction of 76.9%.
“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.”
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.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Trafalgar House has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
