Our planet is overheating, oceans full of plastic and inequality is at an all time high. More children are born into poverty without access to clean water, proper healthcare, and education than ever before. There are fewer trees alive on our planet every day. These are issues that affect us all and at CF Wealth we would like to change this and help create a brighter future for us, our community, and our planet.
We all have goals in life, but what if we came together to achieve the same ones and worked collectively to create a better world not only for ourselves but for everyone, both people and planet.
The Sustainable Development Goals are goals that sit behind CF Wealth and B1G1, our partner in giving back.
Imagine if you could change lives everyday just by doing what you do. We often think of ourselves as individuals, and impress on ourselves a responsibility to change our actions and virtues for the betterment of ourselves, society and the planet.
However, it is our duty to come together as collectives or organisations to lead the change that we want to see in the world, and by doing this we can have a more effective and lasting impact. Believing that every little thing we do can create huge impacts and that every business has the power to make a difference. With a real sense of purpose, small changes made by enough people can have big impacts and can change our world. What you do makes a difference.
We have joined B1G1, a social enterprise and non-profit organisation with a mission to create a world full of giving. B1G1 helps small and medium-sized companies to achieve more social impact by embedding giving activities in their everyday business operations.
CF Wealth is on a mission to create 1 Million Impacts and to play our part in creating a more sustainable and responsible world. Through our ongoing success and your continued support, we hope to achieve this over the next 5 years, by 2025. And to prove these aren’t empty promises, B1G1 has helped us to go public with this independently verified real-time Impact Scorecard measuring our positive impact on the world. Every business transaction is positively impacting the lives of people living in some of the poorest parts of our planet. We find that by encouraging a giving culture through our contributions, we create inspiration for our employees and clients.
The Gifted Tree
Our rainforests are disappearing at an extraordinary rate; restoring them is fundamental to the recovery of our planet. We must immediately halt deforestation and restore rainforests and biodiversity on a global scale. The wilder and more diverse they are the more effective they are at absorbing carbon from the atmosphere. Nature is our biggest ally and our greatest inspiration.
17.7 Million People celebrate their birthdays each day and if all of them plant a sapling as a gift to nature then there will be 6.4 Billion trees in a year.
Every year CF Wealth will celebrate all of our client birthdays by planting a tree to halt deforestation and restore forests in Borneo.
For every interaction on our social media accounts, we’ll give 150 days of clean water to school children in rural Zambia.
When you refer a friend or colleague to us, we will provide nutritious meals to nursery school children in Kenya for 90 days.
When you become a client, we will help a child with disabilities to blossom by giving them access to education in Nepal.
