Continuing its commitment to sustainability, Southwire has partnered with Standard Chartered, a leading international trade bank whose values are expressed simply in its brand promise, “Here for good,” by investing in sustainable deposits with a focus on environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG).
Aimed at supporting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Standard Chartered uses contributions that it receives from participating organizations — what it calls sustainable deposits — to finance projects related to SDGs in countries across Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The projects and outcomes tied to sustainable deposits help to address some of the world’s biggest challenges, including climate change, renewable energy, education and diversity.
These sustainable deposits and the goals that they support align with Southwire’s five core tenets of sustainability: Growing Green, Living Well, Giving Back, Doing Right and Building Worth.
