We believe a properly implemented ESG purpose can drive solid investment performance in addition to a cleaner, greener environment.
ZAIS is a signatory to the United Nations-Supported Principles for Responsible Investment ("UN PRI") and supports the companion Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is important to us. We believe we can strive for ESG informed, values-based performance: Internally in the resources we use, externally in how we help our communities, and strategically in how we deliver long-term returns for those of our investors who elect that strategy.
At ZAIS, we care about the future of our environment and the survival of our natural world with its interconnected waters. With this in mind, ZAIS is delighted to announce that, through the purchase of carbon credits, we have become 100% carbon neutral. This is one step forward, as we begin to develop our ESG goals, including to create a cleaner, greener environment for future generations.
ZAIS worked with an ESG sustainability reporting consultancy firm, which assessed our carbon footprint, generated our carbon neutrality report and guided us to offset these carbon emissions. The carbon credits were registered and retired through Carbonfund.org Foundation, a carbon offset organization.
Though ZAIS doesn’t manufacture a physical product, our operations will contribute to mitigating global climate change by purchasing enough carbon offsets to reach net-zero emission.
ZAIS employees selected three certified projects:
- Truck Stop Electrification Project – Reduction in tailpipe emissions from freight trucks.
- Envira Amazonia Project – A Tropical Forest Conservation Project, otherwise known as a Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) project.
- 15 Mega Watt Solar Power Plant of Gujarat – A solar photovoltaic power project.
We will continue to focus on an ESG sustainability purpose and will keep you updated.
