With the growing focus on climate change and pledges by the United Nations, leading countries and organisations, the time to do something is now. As a global organisation, Pepperstone wants to be at the forefront of this fight. Pepperstone wants to lead the way on becoming a Carbon Neutral organisation by the end of FY23 and set the challenge for all firms within the FX CFD space to follow suit.
Pepperstone’s commitment extends to the voice and support of employees, the board, shareholders, and the communities that they reside and operate in.
Pepperstone has engaged Pangolin Associates https://pangolinassociates.com/ , a carbon management and sustainability consultancy with recognised certifications in Australia and the United Kingdom to understand where the organisation currently is and what needs to be done.
Over the next six months, Pangolin Associates will work with all levels of Pepperstone to understand and assess what our current carbon emissions are, and what Pepperstone needs to do to reduce and offset our carbon emissions for a Platinum Sustainability Rating. We also aim to reduce waste by offering reusable packaging to our staff in partnership with https://returnr.org/.
Managing our carbon footprint is a key component of our Corporate Social Responsibility. We recognise that as a global organisation, we have a responsibility not only to our employees, clients, partners and shareholders, but also to the environment that we operate in. We’re very excited to be working with Pangolin Associates and look forward to the journey ahead. We will aim to source all our power from renewable sources over time” said Tamas Szabo, Pepperstone’s Group Chief Executive Officer.
Pepperstone will continue to share and provide updates on their journey to Carbon Neutrality, as well as capture feedback to develop environmentally friendly products.
