We’re delighted to announce that Capitas Finance achieved High Commended in the Environmental, Social & Governance Standards category at the Asset Finance Connect Summer Awards 2022.
The award was given in recognition of the steps we have taken to help organiations improve their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance, particularly through the prism of implementing low carbon technologies.
Lack of investment is a widespread barrier to improving ESG-related ambitions. As a specialist in financing low carbon energy solutions and on-site generation for carbon-conscious businesses and public sector organisations, our strategy is to provide customers with a wide range of products and services that keep energy bills under control, reduce reliance on the grid whilst also accelerating the path to decarbonisation.
Our CEO Darren Riva comments: “We’re delighted to have been awarded Highly Commended at the Asset Finance Connect Summer Awards. We would like to congratulate all the nominees and winners on the night as it is deserved recognition for the hard work and success across the industry.
Improving ESG performance is increasing in importance a recent survey showing that 90% of global business decision-makers class it as a top priority. Whilst there is a willingness to evolve and adjust business models to improve corporate, social and environmental impacts, many organisations are failing to match this talk with the investment needed. In an era where a wide range of stakeholders – from investors to consumers – are demanding strong sustainability & ESG credentials this is particularly concerning.
We have sought to break down this barrier and help organisations of all sizes improve their ESG performance. We are at the centre of the UK’s energy financing sector, and will continue to break down barriers, unlock UK economic potential and ultimately support the drive to net zero in the battle against climate change.”
