The Green Planet Finance Difference
The Full Story
Green Planet Finance was formed in 2021 based around the philosophy that advice of any kind does not need to be at the detriment to the environment or our world.
We pride ourselves on providing an excellent service and seek and we try to meet our clients' needs at every step. The advice and guidance we offer is designed to ensure that the client's financial position and knowledge is in a better place by the time their financial matters, mortgage or insurances are complete.
An unspoken truth behind behind the excitement of a financial transaction which would include a clients pension, property purchase, re-mortgage or other financial transaction is that each party produces CO2 emissions which could have a negative effect on our planet. The emissions are an unintended consequence of every party dealing with various types of financial transactions.
Each of these will have a carbon footprint as a result of the day to day tasks which they are carrying out. CO2 is produced as a result of:
non-renewable energy being used to:
Heating & cooling offices
Powering screens, laptops & desktop equipment
Employees & customers driving to the offices
Posting of documents
The list goes on...
At Green Planet Finance we look to utilise the small amount of industry research which is at the public's disposal and produce a high quality advice service but also strive to provide a carbon reductive offering. All of the turnover we have from various streams which include provider commission, fees and lender procuration we have committed to invest 1.5% of this into carbon offsetting. We will pay for trees to be planted and invest in other renewable technology which doesn't include nuclear due to lack of availability currently. The environment will be at the heart of all of our decision making. We cover all of these costs in an attempt to offset as much of the carbon on behalf of our client bank to ensure we are leaving the world in a better place.
At Green Planet Finance we don't think there needs to be a trade off between providing high quality advisory services and striving to provide a low carbon offering. If you would like to hear more about our services or environmentally friendly ethos then please feel free to get in touch
Thinking about you and the Planet
Green Planet Finance always aim to provide an excellent service and look to hold the hand of clients as much or as little as they need through the process. We take a holistic approach to each and every client to ensure their needs are met as well as possible.
The amount CO2 which is offset is calculated loosely by using the book 'How bad are bananas'. From the data available we have ascertained that 1.5% of revenue put towards offsetting will hopefully provide a CO2 neutral offering. Unfortunately these figures cannot be verified due to opaque reporting from providers, lenders, platforms and other third parties in the chain. Carbon Neutral Britain are the chosen partner to implement the offsetting and plant trees on behalf of Green Planet Finance.
