About the initiative
As investors, Ninety One aims to create a more sustainable future through active and responsible investing. As a company, we are committed to reaching net zero by 2050. We launched our Green Events Initiative to offset any carbon generated by our flagship events as a part of that commitment.
Solstroem is a Danish technology company and carbon avoidance program, which allows off-grid solar projects to access the carbon market. The issued carbon credits are annotated with a timestamp and a geotag, making them transparent and trusted. The system, and its underlying methodologies are backed by a thorough third-party verification by DNV.
