OUR SUSTAINABILITY PLEDGE
It’s believed that, worldwide, at least 80,000 acres of forests are destroyed every day*. The removal of trees without sufficient reforestation has contributed to higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, worsening levels of air pollution, and devastating damage to habitats and biodiversity.
At Bowmore, we are dedicated to seeking out and supporting ways to reduce our carbon footprint and preserve our planet’s ecosystem.
Our pledge to you: For each new client choosing to invest sustainably with us, we have committed via Ecologi.com to plant two trees in the UK.
Our pledge to our employees: We will finance the planting of 5 trees per employee per month via Ecologi.com

As part of our commitment to finding new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and provide sustainable solutions, we provide environmentally conscious and socially responsible investment opportunities for those clients who want to know their investments are aligned with their values. We can build an ESG investment solution which leaves an ESG footprint matching the demands of your business.
*ESG investing refers to investments made in companies that score highly on environmental, social and ethical governance criteria, as determined by independent bodies.
