Aspen Bridging

Aspen implements green initiatives

Aspen Bridging has pledged to plant a new tree in the UK for every case completed this year and beyond, in order to reduce its overall Scope 1 and 2 emissions to below net zero in 2022.

According to the lender, this step — which meets the UK government environmental reporting guidelines for Scope 1 direct and Scope 2 indirect emissions — will result in the removal of over 200 tons of CO2 by 2025.

In addition, the lender has vowed to continue funding green and refurbishment projects across the UK to improve EPC ratings.

Jack Coombs, director at Aspen Bridging (pictured above), said: “It is vital that every business in the finance sector recognises the impact they have on the environment and takes steps to address their CO2 emissions.

“The commitment we’ve made today not only means we’ll offset beyond net zero for our Scope 1 and 2 emissions from 2022, but is also futureproof as we will maintain this position as we grow and add extra staff over the coming months and years.”
