Moya Financial believes that a sustainable environment is an essential foundation for our communities and for future generations. We are all responsible for our beautiful planet and we need to act now. With every action, reducing our carbon footprint, repairing, reusing, and recycling, we make a small contribution to the solution.
Moya is fully committed to mitigating the negative impact and environmental burden of climate change by proactively reducing our environmental impact. We keep this in mind with everything we do, including the products and services we offer. Our mission is to deliver innovative, competitive financial services to help our members achieve their financial goals. On top of that, we strive to make a significant contribution to our communities and the environment.
Bee the change
Honeybees play an important role in the environment, and we are proud to be part of this element of nature. In 2019, we launched Moya Hive, our honeybee program. Moya members loved the idea: honeybees and beekeeping are essential parts of Slovenian culture and the environment we live in. These incredible little creatures remind us of the importance of working together, and one of the much-loved elements of Moya Hive is that members feel like part of the community and join us when our professional beekeepers come to maintain the hives. Because of the pandemic last year, we hosted two virtual workshops. Members also purchased hive products – honey, soap, and candles – with all proceeds going back to our community.
We’re proud to help make our planet better
In 2020 Moya took a big step to reduce our business’s carbon emissions footprint by choosing environmentally responsible electricity from Bullfrog Power, a Spark Power company. We set sustainability targets as one of our long-term strategic priorities at Moya Financial. By managing the environmental impact of our activities, we will continue to work in harmony with our communities and challenge ourselves to improve energy efficiency and act responsibly toward the environment where we live, play, and work.
Growing for the future
In 2021 we partnered with Tree Canada to support its National Greening Program! The program targets regions across Canada that need reforestation or afforestation (the creation of new forests) as a result of human activity or other causes. In addition to restoring forests and wildlife habitat, trees planted through the National Greening Program contribute to cleaner air, healthier soil, and cleaner waterways. To kick-start the partnership and our new Youth Accounts (we plant a tree for every active account, each year), Moya Financial has donated $2,000 toward the program – that’s 400 trees!
Building sustainable partnerships
As we create new financial products and services and craft our marketing promotions to let everyone know about them, we carefully consider who we choose to partner with. Teaming up means mutual benefits related to sustainability goals. Our partners align with our values and need to be in sync with our brand values. No matter what service we are looking for, there is almost always an option that is cost-competitive and high quality, but doesn’t come at the planet’s expense. In the past, we have included products from companies we believe in, such as Alvéole, etobiGrow, Sprout, YETI, Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC), and many more.
