At CedarFX, we believe that every individual has the power to make a change. When like-minded people come together for a good cause, we can make a significant positive impact on our world.
We are an eco-friendly broker dedicated to combating global warming, one trade at a time. This is why we offer our clients an Eco Account option, which includes a charge of $1 commission per lot traded. Each month, we will MATCH the amount of commissions paid by Eco Account holders, and use those funds to offset our workforce’s carbon footprint, fund climate change solution projects and reach our eco-targets.
$1 is enough to plant 5 trees. This means that for every lot traded by our clients, we can plant a total of 10 trees!
Trees are the most powerful tool we have to tackle the climate crisis. By planting enough trees, we can stop global temperatures from rising above 1.5 °C and prevent ecological collapse.
For every $1 commission paid by our clients, we match that amount and use that money to plant trees. These funds are sent to the Eden Reforestation Project, who are responsible for planting millions of trees around the world.
So far, we’ve supported tree-planting projects in various countries, including Madagascar, Mozambique and Nicaragua. You can learn more about these projects here.
Apart from planting trees, we also support a wide range of Gold Standard certified Carbon Reduction projects. Part of our monthly contribution goes towards investing in projects to reduce the amount of greenhouse gasses in the earth’s atmosphere.
By supporting global carbon reduction projects, we’re turning our workforce into a climate-positive one and combating global warming.
Among the causes we’ve supported are a Wind Energy farm in Andhra Pradesh, India and preserving prime Brazilian Rainforest. You can learn more about these projects here.
Each month, we match the total amount of commissions paid by Eco Account holders and send 100% of the funds to Ecologi, a UK-based social enterprise which works hard to raise funds for environmental and sustainability projects across the globe. The organisation publishes quarterly financial reports, certificates and receipts on their website, to show how many tonnes of CO2 have been removed from the atmosphere and how many purchases have been made by their tree-planting partner, Eden Projects.
