Vantage announces ESG programme

Rick Steves

Under the newly launched ESG programme, Vantage partnered with Supercar Blondie, a digital media publisher specialized in luxury supercars, to focus on driving innovation for electric vehicle production, promoting gender equality, and putting a spotlight on climate change.

Vantage has launched a global ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance) programme, the international multi-asset broker announced.

The firm’s corporate ESG journey will formalize its employees’ ongoing efforts as they’ve been implementing localized ESG projects for their local community for years, from volunteer work and donations to fundraising and education.

The broker will provide additional support and coordination, and allow teams to share resources and ideas to maximize impact. The ESG programme will include a worldwide blood donation drive, fundraising for refugees, and supporting free financial education initiatives in emerging markets to improve financial literacy and boost financial independence.

To steer this programme, Vantage appointed Sofiia Starchevska as ESG ambassador, who will be coordinating the programme under five guiding principles.

Sofiia Starchevska, ESG Ambassador at Vantage, said, “For us, ESG is more than just a framework or an opportunity that companies and investors can jump on. Everyone has a responsibility to contribute to the world we live in in a positive way. We aim to make ESG a part of our daily lives by giving our employees the opportunity to contribute to ESG projects, and ultimately give back to the communities they live in.”

Vantage partners with Supercar Blondie for Extreme E race

Under the newly launched ESG programme, Vantage partnered with Supercar Blondie, a digital media publisher specialized in luxury supercars, to focus on driving innovation for electric vehicle production, promoting gender equality, and putting a spotlight on climate change.

Supercar Blondie has more than 75 million social followers across their channels. As part of the collaboration, Alexandra Mary ‘Alex’ Hirschi, from Supercar Blondie, will join Vantage in Sardinia, Italy, participating in Extreme E’s Blue Carbon sustainability initiative to restore vital seagrass ecosystems, during the week of Sardinia’s Extreme E race.

Vantage is a sponsor of McLaren MX Extreme E since February. Extreme E is a new concept in motorsport, that challenges teams to race off-road across remote areas of the globe, in cutting-edge electric SUV’s, to raise climate awareness.

Marc Despallieres, Chief Strategy & Trading Officer at Vantage, commented:  “We are pleased to have the support of Supercar Blondie, Sofiia, and our employees as we embark on our ESG journey. It was clear that contributing to the world around us is something we really care about and the launch of the ESG programme, together with our collaboration with Alex, is a way to consolidate all these efforts and to encourage participation. The will is definitely there. The battle is just organising and mobilisation. These initiatives are just the start, and we are excited to see what this collective action can achieve.”
