New partnerships to drive climate action

New partnerships to drive climate action

Prosus announces two new partnerships to support its climate transition plan, with BoardNow, and the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF). Identifying scalable technologies, partnerships, and strategies to reduce our environmental impact and improve performance are fundamental to ensuring our own low-carbon growth.

BoardNow

The BoardNow programme is a coalition of companies committed to sustainable air travel by addressing the significant and growing environmental impact of aviation fuels. As a global consumer internet business, with a presence in more than 100 countries, a sizable portion of our corporate footprint comes from air travel emissions. By partnering with BoardNow, we will start to decarbonise our own air travel and support the development of a low-carbon pathway for air travel.

Prosus has signed a five-year partnership with BoardNow. Through this partnership we will purchase sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) credits from a dedicated sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facility, operated in the Netherlands by SkyNRG, amounting to 95 tonnes of SAF per year, starting in 2025.

Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF)

The Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) is a collaboration between financial institutions worldwide to enable harmonized assessments and disclosures of greenhouse gas emissions financed by loans and investments. With more than 290 financial institutions from six continents, the group is rapidly expanding in North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia-Pacific. Prosus has joined the partnership to support the standardisation of methods and guidelines for climate accounting and target setting for investors. The partnership further strengthens our commitment to contribute to a decarbonised world.
