Trading for Trees program
In 2019 we started our partnership with One Tree Planted to provide a unique trading incentive for our users to trade Green Bonds on MarketAxess. Through our Trading for Trees program, we plant 5 trees for every $1 Million in Green Bonds traded on our platform.
Check out our infographic for some additional statistics on the 2021 full year results for the program.
Green Bonds Trading on MarketAxess
Our Environmental, Social and Governance journey
We support the Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Part of our support is developing an understanding of how our Company’s operations contribute to global carbon emissions. For that reason, in January 2022, we began measuring our Scope 1, 2, and some of our 3 emissions and, once measured, we plan to put measurable environmental goals in place.
We believe that transparency around our carbon measurement project and reduction strategy is important to our stakeholders. For that reason, we responded to the minimum version of CDP’s climate change questionnaire for the first time in July 2021. That response contains qualitative disclosure about our environmental initiatives and strategy.
