CityGroup has pledged to donate a percentage of our net annual profits to supporting environmental initiatives and carbon sequestration.

Our vision is to show local businesses as a force for good by supporting sound, green investments in ventures focused on carbon reduction, environmental protection, and sustainability. CityGroup will provide seed and growth capital and focus on delivering measurable, sustainable, and beneficial environmental impact.

We will invest ‘patient capital’ in commercially viable projects so that our annual investment fund is a perpetual investment mechanism and that we are reinvesting future profits into new sustainable green ventures. As part of our carbon commitment, the fund will dedicate money each year to native tree planting, serving as a catalyst for green initiative projects with our clients, supply chain, government organisations, charities, and other partners.

In December 2022, CityGroup’s project team secured 1 acre of land and has drawn up plans to install a biodiverse wildflower meadow, woodland, large water area, and honey bee colony. CityGroup is scheduled to start the 8-week project in January 2023 and will design, install and manage the new biodiverse woodland, providing an essential habitat for various wildlife species. From birds to insects to small mammals. The wildflower meadow will be excellent for pollinators like bees and butterflies. In addition, it will play an essential role in preserving the environment.

CityGroups CEO has said, “This is an exciting first step towards CityGroup becoming a carbon-neutral company. This will definitely be the first of many future projects of its kind for us as we focus on minimising our emissions and protecting and improving our local environment. CityGroup will work towards accreditations ISO 14001, PAS 2050, and PAS 2060, recognising our environmental progression. CityGroups ultimate goal is to be net zero by 2030. With this at the front of mind, we will continue to adopt new technologies and push forward with energy-saving initiatives.”

    We’d love to hear from you and to talk with you about your organisation and it’s challenges.

    What does it actually mean to be Carbon Neutral?

     
    There’s a big reason why we made the pledge to become carbon neutral and dedicated our time, resources, and money to achieving this massive goal. As a result, we are on a positive journey toward a greener future.

    If you need clarification on what carbon-neutral means or need help understanding its importance, please allow us to explain.

    Being carbon-neutral means that any CO2 released into the atmosphere from a company’s activities is balanced by an equivalent amount being removed. This is achieved through the procurement of carbon credits to fund sustainable projects such as building hydroelectric power generation plants, known as carbon offsetting.

    Carbon dioxide emissions continue to increase and therefore add to the ever-increasing threat of climate change. As covered in the media, the world is warming faster than ever in recorded history. This is a serious problem, and CityGroup wants to recognise and take responsibility for any CO2 emissions that our company is putting into the environment. We’re continuing to reduce our carbon output until we reach our ultimate aim of net zero.

    The Earth and younger generations’ quality of life are simply at risk if we don’t change our ways and improve our output. Many countries, including the UK, have committed to becoming net zero by 2050.
