The annual Earth Hour event is just around the corner, set to fall on 25 March 2023. It is a global energy saving campaign initiated by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to combat global climate change and raise people’s awareness of environmental protection – after all, it is our shared responsibility.
Standing as a world-leading financial services group, Doo Group has been practicing green finance to contribute to the coordination of financial and environmental protection for sustainable development.
Building A Financial Services System With Green Finance Practices
There are two implications of green finance:
- How the financial sector can contribute to environmental protection and sustainable economic and social development;
- Sustainable development of the financial sector itself
Upholding the principle of “Clients come first”, we are dedicated to improving our green financial services model.
Doo Group owns multiple sub-brands, including Doo Clearing, Doo Financial, Doo Prime, which focus on subdivided areas of the financial market in order to provide professional one-stop financial services for global investments. Under the strict supervision of the world’s top financial regulators, Doo Group offers more than 20,000 financial products and asset management services in securities, futures, currency pairs, CFDs and funds to individual and institutional clients worldwide.
By incorporating green finance as part of the group’s Environment, Social, And Governance (ESG) practices, Doo Group’s products and services offer covers a wide range of green industry sectors with new technologies and business models.
In the future, we will be deeply involved in the green finance business through continuous opportunity tracking and the exploration of financial products that meet sustainable and green standards. With the Group’s strong fintech infrastructure and financial ecosystem, we can provide investors with a wider range of asset classes and investment portfolios. While enhancing the quality of green financial services, it also promotes environmental protection and sustainable economic and social development.
Promoting Green Offices By Signing Global Environmental Charters
Doo Group has signed several global charters related to environmental protection, including the Energy Saving Charter and the 4T Charter by the Environment and Ecology Bureau, the Carbon Reduction Charter by the Hong Kong Environmental Protection Department, and the Food Wise Charter by the Food Wise Hong Kong Steering Committee.
According to these environmental protection frameworks, we take energy and water efficiency, low-carbon living, and climate risk into account in the construction of office environments. We are committed to creating green workplaces and improving the overall efficiency of office resources and energy use.
We encourage employees in each region to utilize office resources wisely according to local climate conditions and office habits – taking the initiative to turn off air-conditioners, lights and other office equipment upon leaving the workplaces and conference rooms to reduce unnecessary consumption of electricity and water. Through a comprehensive online office model, Doo Group’s global offices are able to achieve cross-regional collaborations through online communication, online meetings, electronic approval and paperless office. This model not only greatly reduces the consumption of physical resources such as paper, but also the carbon footprint from business travel.
Boosting Green Development Through Industry Partnerships
Over the course of our business development, Doo Group has developed partnerships with a number of top companies in the industry. In addition to our deep collaboration in financial technology and services, we also share a common pursuit of environmental protection.
For instance, our infrastructure partner, Equinix, a leading global data operator, is committed to decreasing its carbon footprint and improving its power usage effectiveness (PUE) in response to the Paris Agreement. In addition, Equinix designs, builds, retrofits and operates their data centers with PUE goals in mind to create a physical building infrastructure that meets high energy efficiency standards.
We deploy our data centers in Equinix’s London (LD5), New York (NT5), Hong Kong (HK2), and Singapore (SG1) nodes to maximize energy efficiency while ensuring an excellent trading environment.
As a financial services group with financial technology as its core, Doo Group will continue to focus on emerging sustainable technologies and carry the concept of green finance through the whole process of business development.
In the future, we will be exploring more low-carbon and environmentally friendly ways to save energy, and build a global financial services system with higher energy resource efficiency to serve global investors.
