|Sustainability & Citizenship|
We also support these efforts by encouraging the reduction of office waste and by including eco-conscious criteria in our supplier selection process.
In order to reduce the impact of our travel on the environment, we have sought to redress the balance.
In 2009 as part of our overall emissions reduction goals, Markit offset its air travel through the purchase of Voluntary Carbon Units(VCUs).
We expect to replicate this program and support charities with significant gifts each year.
Many of the Markit offices participate in our Employees Give to Charity Program. Employees donate money each Friday and can dress casually in return. All proceeds collected are then donated on a monthly basis.
As a market leader in the financial services community, Markit is in a unique position to bridge gaps. Our employees, clients and community will provide the fuel that drives the success of our sustainability and citizenship program.
