Years of experience
In 2009, with an increase in government legislation to promote sustainability, we anticipated a rise in the environmental commodity markets. To help companies succeed in meeting their environmental goals, we decided to make these complex markets as transparent and simple as possible.
ACT brings an understanding of a complex and dynamic marketplace where legislation, product availability and client requirements are constantly evolving, forming a link between buyers and sellers of tradable products. We have experienced explosive growth in recent years and we now trade over 40 products in a large number of markets across Europe, Asia and the US.
GFK research shows that 51% of businesses put sustainability prominently on their agenda. Businesses increasingly realize the importance of working sustainably and are discovering the opportunities offered to them by Corporate Social Responsibility. We not only help these companies achieve their sustainability goals in a responsible manner but we also practice what we preach.
Examples of projects
Greening our commute
The rising in popularity of electric bicycles is a positive development in the fight against traffic congestion and urban air pollution. But they are not nearly as green as many people think, as they are mostly charged using electricity from polluting coal-fired power plants. So in 2019, we gave all of our employees an electric bicycle charged with Dutch wind energy, making their commutes truly climate neutral.
BREEAM certified office
We believe in minimizing construction waste, reducing CO2 emissions and improving the environment for wildlife around construction areas. To stay true to this belief, we chose to house our Amsterdam office in a BREEAM certified building. BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is the world's leading method of assessing, rating, and certifying the sustainability of buildings.
Greening electricity consumption
We know that it's not always possible to house a company in a BREEAM certified building. So when we chose our offices in New York City, we committed to our own sustainability goals. We quantify our share of the electricity usage in our office building and use renewable energy certificates to ensure that it is fully green.
We will help you set up the right plan that matches your objectives
