Sustainability should also play a major role in the financial sector. 8pitch is committed to making all its processes as environmentally conscious and sustainable as possible.
We strive for compliance with sustainable criteria at all levels of our service offering and in the development of every process.
When selecting the companies and projects whose digital securities we broker on our platform, we pay attention to the moral and ethical justifiability of the business models and respective projects. We exclude from the outset industries with high money laundering risks or unethical working conditions. Likewise, all issuers are thoroughly checked in advance as part of the onboarding process.
The digital currency Bitcoin currently generates 22.9 million tons of CO2 emissions every year, which is equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions of Kansas City or a small country like Jordan or Sri Lanka. These values have been calculated by researchers from MIT and TU Munich. We do not want to badmouth the whole thing - please do not misunderstand. Nevertheless, we have decided not to support this by using a sustainable blockchain solution, such as the DS-Ledger, and thus also to harm the environment as little as possible by consciously using technologies.
What we started with the selection of the blockchain, we continue with the entire selection of each of our systems. For example, 8pitch relies on environmentally friendly cloud server providers, shuts down unneeded resources and constantly monitors its consumption.
Our entire team pays particular attention to sustainability in their everyday work. With sports activities, healthy and regional food, as well as the conscious use of available energy sources, we also live sustainability in our everyday life.
8pitch will continue to focus on sustainable processes in the future and make every decision consciously - promised!
