OUR COMMITMENT

We are committed to sustainability and believe the provision of information lies at the core of what we can do to make a difference.

Access to the right information is two fold.

Using data to understand the impact of our company on the environment, both on a day to day basis, and in terms of the conferences we deliver around the world enables us to make smart choices and ensure we minimise the damage our own output is doing. Proximo acknowledges its own CO2 emissions and has committed to an annual carbon compensation initiative, which will invest in green projects around the world from the outset.

Secondly, our job as an information provider is to shed light on activity in the energy and infrastructure sector on a global basis. Our data will assist business leaders in making better informed decisions not only on financial and economic factors at play, but also environmental. We strongly believe such data points will become increasingly critical as new liquidity enters the sector, and sustainability data will be at the forefront of any new product we build.
