Lyndhurst Financial Management, one of Hertfordshire’s leading independent financial advice companies, has announced today, 1st July 2020, that it intends to be carbon neutral by the end of 2022.
The plan includes both how the business will operate at net carbon zero and how it will provide investment solutions to its clients that reach the highest standard of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG).
Geoff Newman, Director at Lyndhurst Financial Management says
“We have been working hard to develop our business to do our bit in helping the UK meet its compliance with The Paris Agreement. With offices in Harpenden and Hitchin and over 30 staff drawn from around the area we realised that, while having everyone cycle to work would be a wonderful aspiration, in practice this would not work. Consequently, we have joined forces with a local carbon offsetting not for profit business, My Carbon Plan, to reduce each of our staff’s carbon footprint to net zero. We are also changing our energy suppliers to those that provide renewal energy and are making our offices plastic free spaces.
What is really exciting is that today we are launching a range of risk rated sustainable investment solutions that will allow those clients who are concerned about climate change to reduce the carbon intensity of their portfolios through investment in market leading multi asset funds. The current Lyndhurst model portfolios, which we have developed over the last 8 years, already have an ESG rating of A, these newly launched model portfolios will shift that measure to AA.”
