E-Ledger Capital Solutions supports the aims and principles of The Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ- https://www.gfanzero.com/) the global coalition of leading financial institutions committed to accelerating the decarbonization of the economy and to achieving global net-zero goals.

We believe that trade receivables securitisation can improve efficiencies in the financial system and can create a bridge between credit institutions and capital markets with an indirect benefit for businesses and citizens (through, for example, less expensive loans and business financing). Securitisation can also act as a bridge to capital markets for businesses that are unable to directly tap the markets themselves, reaching a wider set of investors.

We are fully aligned with EU and UK economic policy of fostering job creation by improving the financing of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and we aim to ensure that securitisation is used to support economic recovery, in a sector at the forefront of technology and innovation making effective use of capital.

E-Ledger Capital Solutions also aligns with the Principles of Responsible Investment (https://www.unpri.org/) and supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals (https://sdgs.un.org/goals).

E-Ledger Capital Solutions is committed to carrying out all our activities in accordance with our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Policy which is the framework from which we make the decisions which impact our clients, investors, stakeholders, and communities.

We adhere to the following principles and promote their application:

  • Environmental Policy:

We recognise that as an organisation we have a responsibility to the environment beyond legal requirements. We aim to reduce our impact on the environment by reducing the use of paper in our offices, minimising the waste of energy and water, optimising the consumption of office supplies, minimising business travel where possible and using sustainable cleaning materials in our facilities.

  • Labour:

We abide by the principles of the UK’s Modern Slavery Act. Our employees’ labour rights are recognised and protected. We are committed to an inclusive culture of fairness and equal opportunity for all, where diverse views are encouraged.

  • Anti-bribery and Corruption:

We have zero tolerance for dishonest or illegal activities. Our legal and compliance team constantly monitors all activities to ensure adherence to legislation and ethical practices.

  • Health and Safety:

We prioritise our employees’ wellbeing. We strive to create a safe and healthy working environment. All staff are responsible for maintaining and promoting such an environment.

  • Governance and Oversight:

There is a system of internal controls in place within a framework overseen by the Board of Directors of the company. We only work with stakeholders that are engaged in activities which are not prohibited by applicable law or by the terms of our ESG Policy.

These principles guide our internal culture and shape the relationships with our customers, suppliers, investors, and employees. We aim to be an example of integrity. Our goal is to advance sustainability in all areas of our business.
