“We joined the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials to combine efforts to combat greenhouse gas emissions”, Yasmina Vucina, Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP Strategic Partnerships.
The Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) is a collaboration among financial institutions around the world to enable harmonized assessments and disclosures of greenhouse gas emissions, financed by loans and investments.
With more than 350 financial institutions on six continents, the group is expanding rapidly in North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia-Pacific.
Areti Bank has decided to join PCAF because it is aware of the value that financial institutions can bring to environmental transformation, through concrete actions aligned with positive and just transformation.
“Joining PCAF has been a strategic decision, allowing us to measure, evaluate and report the greenhouse gas emissions of our portfolio, and thus be able to analyze, measure and propose goals for decarbonization, and, to know the real impact we are having on the planet and society with our foot print”, says Yasmina Vucina, Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP Strategic Partnerships.
Areti Bank is a 100% digital international bank, focused on creating value with each of its actions. Seeks to be more efficient and committed to its customers, as well as more sustainable and humane, by acting in favor of the environment and a fairer society for all, supporting like-minded organizations and individuals.
About the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF)
The Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) was launched globally in September 2019. Currently, more than 350 financial institutions have subscribed to the PCAF initiative. PCAF participants work together to jointly develop the Global GHG Accounting and Reporting Standard for the Financial Industry to measure and disclose the greenhouse gas emissions of their loans and investments. By doing so, PCAF participants take an important step to assess climate-related risks, set targets in line with the Paris Climate Agreement and develop effective strategies to decarbonize our society.
