No Poverty 1

Creating a poverty-free world through financial empowerment.

We recognise that access to financial knowledge and services is critical to lifting individuals and communities out of poverty.

By fostering economic inclusion, we strive to empower individuals from all walks of life to build a better future for themselves and their families.

We proudly support initiatives that promote financial literacy and expand access to capital for underserved populations.

Zero Hunger 2

Providing meals via ShareTheMeal.

We are passionate about ending world hunger and strive to support organisations providing those in need with accessible and nutritious meals.

This includes ShareTheMeal, a United Nations’ World Food Programme initiative. This fundraising app allows anyone to provide children with vital nutrition. To date, ShareTheMeal has provided over 175 million meals to people in need.

In 2023, we raised and donated 2,000 meals via ShareTheMeal to underprivileged children worldwide.

Good Health and Well-Being 3

Advocating for physical and mental well-being.

We foster a supportive and inclusive work environment that promotes work-life balance, mental wellness, and personal development.

We recognise the importance of access to healthcare services for all. This fuels our advocacy for initiatives that promote health education, disease prevention, and access to affordable and quality healthcare.

Quality Education 4

Championing personal and societal advancement through education.

We are committed to providing accessible and comprehensive educational resources through our platform. This empowers our users with knowledge and skills needed to confidently navigate financial markets.

We aim to collaborate with educational institutions, experts, and organisations that promote financial literacy and knowledge-sharing. This will democratise access to financial education, and build an informed and financially empowered society.

Gender Equality 5

Creating a just and equitable society where everyone thrives regardless of gender.

We are committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workplace where all individuals— regardless of gender—feel valued, respected, and empowered to reach their full potential. We strive to eliminate gender biases and barriers to advancement, ensuring equal opportunities for all employees.

At the same time, we also advocate for gender equality beyond our company walls. We aim to engage in initiatives that promote women’s empowerment, leadership development, and equal representation in decision-making roles.

Clean Water And Sanitation 6

Managing water responsibly.

We recognize the importance of access to clean water and sanitation for human health, environmental sustainability, and economic development.

We strive to minimise our environmental impact, and promote responsible water management practices in our operations. Through efficiency measures and responsible sourcing, we aim to conserve water resources and reduce water pollution.

Additionally, we are always ready to support initiatives that improve access to clean water and sanitation in our local communities.

Affordable and Clean Energy 7

Maximising energy efficiency.

We strive to adopt renewable energy sources and energy efficiency measures in our operations. Through the use of LED lighting and other energy-efficient appliances in the office, we aim to reduce our carbon footprint and contribute to mitigating climate change.

We advocate for initiatives that facilitate the transition to a low-carbon economy, and which increase access to affordable and clean energy for all. We also collaborate with partners holding similar values to advance renewable energy solutions.

Decent Work and Economic Growth 8

We prioritise creating fulfilling employment opportunities for our employees, contractors, and partners. By upholding fair labour practices, providing competitive wages, and fostering a safe and inclusive work environment, we create opportunities for everyone to thrive.

Through our actions and collaborations, we aim to contribute to a more just, equitable, and inclusive society.

Sustainable Cities And Communities 11

Contributing to inclusive, resilient, and sustainable communities.

We prioritise sustainable practices in our operations, aiming to minimise our environmental footprint while contributing to the health and well-being of urban areas. To promote sustainable urban development, we adopt energy efficiency, waste reduction measures, and sustainable transport solutions.

We also engage with local communities and partners to address urban challenges and promote community resilience and engagement. These include our recent sponsorship of the UNESCO-led 3rd International Workshop on Youth and Young Professionals in Science, Engineering, Technology, and Innovation for Disaster and Climate Resilience in 2023.

We encourage responsible purchasing decisions, and provide information about sustainable alternatives to help individuals make informed choices.

Climate Action 13

Fighting inequality and the climate crisis with UNESCO.

We’re dedicated to combating climate change and its impacts. For example, we sponsored the 3rd International Workshop on Youth and Young Professionals in Science, Engineering, Technology, and Innovation for Disaster and Climate Resilience with UNESCO. This empowers the next gen to build resilient communities against climate disasters. Our initiatives raise awareness, promote preparedness, and foster resilience in vulnerable communities. Through education and capacity-building, we aim for a sustainable, resilient future for all.

Conserving and restoring natural habitats and ecosystems.

Through our actions and partnerships, we strive to promote responsible land use, conservation of natural habitats, and restoration of degraded ecosystems.

Fostering strategic collaborations and partnerships.

We actively seek out collaboration opportunities with diverse stakeholders. These include organisations, businesses, and communities. We believe that by working together, we can leverage our collective strengths, resources, and expertise to address complex challenges and drive meaningful change.
