LPFA gains Planet Mark reaccreditation
The LPFA has been reaccredited by the Eden project supported Planet Mark for its commitment to sustainability. The Planet Mark certification is given to organisations that monitor and work to reduce their carbon emissions and resource use. The LPFA committed to being a Net Zero Fund in September 2021 and uses the Planet Mark to ensure its daily operational activity is aligned with the direction of its investment portfolio.
According to Robert Branagh, CEO of LPFA, “In September 2021, we committed to being a Net Zero Fund by 2050 and to work to interim targets for 2030. While this commitment covers our investment portfolio, it’s important that we show a similar commitment in our daily lives at work. Planet Mark certification helps our colleagues look at how we operate as a business and aligns our operational activity with our Net Zero aspirations. We are a small organisation but being mindful of our impact on the environment and society in every aspect of our life is important. Our focus for the next year will be to work with our suppliers to assess how their activities support our goals.”
By measuring and reducing the LPFA’s operational carbon footprint with the Planet Mark, LPFA is directly and measurably contributing towards 9 of the 18 United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. These include: Clean Water and Sanitation, Climate Action, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Responsible Consumption and Production and Life on Land.
