Business Banking for a Better Tomorrow

Sustainability has become an integral part of our everyday life – and business banking should be no exception. That’s why we decided to rethink how we work. The result? Business banking that makes a positive contribution to climate protection while empowering founders and companies for a sustainably successful future.

Climate neutral since 2020

In order to be able to operate as a climate-neutral company since 2020 and to support our journey to net zero, we are working with Planetly to establish effective CO₂e management measures across the company. These include:

  • Getting a precise reading of our greenhouse gas footprint
  • Calculating our emissions in real time
  • Compensating for emissions through climate protection projects
    (verified by CDM Gold Standard & Verified Carbon Standard)

Penta as a Leader for Climate Action

Our Chief Product Officer Lukas Zörner is part of the Leaders for Climate Action (LFCA). LFCA is a network of several hundred digital and tech companies that advocates for climate protection and supports members in driving sustainable change in their businesses.

 

“Penta can play a key role in helping companies use a sustainable banking provider from Day 1.”

– Lukas Zörner, Chief Product Officer

Our donation programme for sustainable startups in Africa

By recommending Penta’s innovative business account through our referral programme, you can donate your earned reward to support social and sustainable startups in Africa.

This donation programme takes place through a partnership with Impacc. The Hamburg-based gGmbH has been providing financial support for green startups in Africa since 2019. The capital for this is raised through donations, which Impacc converts into equity investments in businesses, thus creating sustainable jobs in areas of extreme poverty.

Joining forces: Penta Climate Officer & Green Team

To help us get a clear focus on our sustainability goals, we have established the position of Climate Officer. This person will be responsible for ensuring Penta’s sustainability measures are not only implemented but also keep us on track over the long term.

This position is supported by the Penta Green Team, a committee of members from various departments who regularly meet to explore new and existing sustainability plans and the ways in which they can positively impact all areas of the company.

For example, our digital infrastructure is already powered by 100% renewable energy and our Pentonians commute for free by public transport.

In addition, Penta’s Bank Cards are made from 100% recycled PET-G plastic and their packaging from reusable grass paper.
