Our commitment to the environment A tree planted for every KFI request

Our ethos is to simplify things as much as possible, and this reflects also on our processes, designed to be as efficient as possible. Efficiency also means reducing waste and improving the environment we live in.

As an online and agile company, we can make the most of technology and promote a more eco-friendly paperless way of doing business. But we are also committed to play our part actively, trying to reduce the environmental footprint of the later life market. That's why, for every KFI requested through Advise Wise we will plant a tree.

The consumption of paper reaches huge volumes every year and forests and tree plantations are the primary source of fibre to produce new paper.

The later life industry is not fully digitalised yet and still a paper-heavy sector, where the habit to print tons of documents is still very persistent.

Worldwide paper consumption exceeds 400m tonnes per year.

One office employee consumes 10,000 sheets of paper every year.

Fantastic progress has been made over the last few years in reducing paper usage in the later life market, with lenders launching new digital processes. As a technology provider, we are committed to support too.

We encourage the use of technology by providing innovative solutions to support advisors in digitalising their processes. But, we can do more. That's why, we will plant a tree for every KFI requested through Advise Wise.

Why have we chosen to plant trees?

Here are some of the many benefits of planting trees.

How does it work?

Simply request a KFI through the Advise Wise Platform or Mortgage Club and we will plant a tree on your behalf. A tree will be planted for each individual KFI request, even if rejected by the lender due to client eligibility.

We will periodically keep you up to date with how much carbon you have offset by using Advise Wise for your KFI requests.
