At auxmoney we aim to responsibly empower everyone in society to achieve their plans, goals and dreams. We do this by providing more people with access to credit through our lending platform and by acting responsibly towards our customers, employees, investors and other stakeholders.
Our ESG approach and objectives
As one of the leading digital-lending platforms for consumer credit in Europe and a pioneer in financial product innovation, we assume responsibility to establish a sustainable financial ecosystem. Our ESG strategy – which stands for Environment, Social and Governance – is the foundation for our actions in these areas.
Taking care of the environment we operate in
- Carbon footprint reduction
We have achieved a significant reduction of our corporate carbon footprint (CCF) by switching to renewable energy. We aim to further reduce our CCF per employee by 5% annually.
- Environmental friendliness
Our goal is that at least 35% of our employees use environmentally-friendly transportation to get to work.
Driving financial and personal wellbeing in our firm and within society
- Financial inclusion
Our target is to offer a minimum of 60% of our loans to borrowers underserved by traditional banks.
- Responsible lending
We aim for a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of at least 45 (on a scale of -100 to 100).
- Employee well-being
We target a score of 7 (out of 10) or higher for the well-being section of our regular employee engagement survey.
- Community well-being
Our aim is that at least 5% of our employees take their additional vacation day for volunteering.
- Diversity & inclusion
We aim to have a minimum share of 30% women in leading positions (team leads, department heads, and management).
Maintaining good corporate governance for us and our partners
- Ethical business conduct
We believe that the basis for ethical conduct is knowledge – therefore we aim to have a completion rate of offered governance employee trainings of min. 90%.
- Effective risk management
In addition to our risk management measures, we target a completion rate of offered data protection & IT security employee trainings of at least 90%.
- Best practice governance
We are committed to achieve industry-leading corporate governance. Our goal is to receive no critical findings in external audits of the governance framework.
Our Social Bond Framework
auxmoney provides consumers that are underserved by traditional lenders with access to credit. The lending activities constitute Eligible Social Projects, are aligned with the ICMA Social Bond Principles (2021 edition) and contribute to the achievement of key United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
auxmoney’s framework has been reviewed by the independent second-party opinion (SPO) provider, ISS Corporate Solutions, Inc. (“ICS”), who attested its alignment with the ICMA Social Bond Principles 2021.
