The lender has offset its emissions, mainly from the HQ building and staff commutes, via the UK offsetting programme, Carbon Neutral Britain. This initiative funds renewable energy projects, such as the Angkor Bio Cogen project in Cambodia and Burgos Wind Project in the Phillipines.
Landbay will have this carbon neutral business certification for a year, and will need to renew it annually.
Julian Cork, chief operating officer at Landbay, said: “It has never been more important for businesses to step up and take account of the environmental impact associated with their operations,” he added.
“Looking to do our part for the environment, we have offset via the Carbon Neutral Britain Climate Fund, which supports wind, solar, hydro and cook stove projects.
“They all have a strong focus on providing lasting social and economic benefits in developing countries around the world.
“I would like to thank the ESG team at Landbay, which consists of volunteers from each of the functional areas, who have worked hard on this.”
