We Are Key Group

Sustainability

Key Group has always been a purpose-driven firm. At the heart of our business is our desire to enable people to live a more fulfilling later life.

We want to use our influence as an adviser, lender, partner and employer as a force for good – creating positive change within the later life lending industry and building a sustainable future for all.

Not only is it the right thing to do, but it’s fundamental to the success of our business, maximising our value to society and managing our risk.

Sustainability Report 2023 insights

Our 2023 sustainability strategy sets out our approach to four key areas:

Responsible business practices

We recognise that good governance is vital in setting an organisation up for success.

People and culture

We believe that helping people live a more fulfilling later life starts with supporting everyone in our organisation unlock their true potential.

Safeguarding the environment

We believe every business has the opportunity and obligation to protect our planet.

Supporting our communities

We understand the importance of community and our impact within it. 

With over 600 colleagues, we’re committed to playing an active role in supporting positive change in these areas. Whether it’s through diversity and inclusion focus groups or charity days, we’re making changes to our business to support the delivery of our sustainability ambitions.

Making our business greener

We’ve been a carbon neutral organisation since 2020 by annually purchasing offsets to cover the operational (Scope 1 and 2) emissions we produce.

Being carbon neutral is part of our strategy to minimise our environmental impact and plays a significant role in our work towards the ultimate goal of achieving net-zero.

As a fast-growing business, our priority will continue to be on minimising current and future emissions using smart working practices and renewable energy.

For instance, we’ve funded, through verified offsetting schemes, enough trees to sequester the equivalent amount of carbon emissions produced by the business since our inception in 2000 and recently launched our electrical vehicle car scheme to help all colleagues reduce their carbon footprint.
