Evolving from Green to Greener: IK Financial's Pioneering Journey Towards Sustainability

In a world where sustainability has become a crucial factor in every industry, IK Financial stands as a beacon of eco-conscious business practices in Canada's mortgage sector. Explore how IK Financial has embraced sustainability, showcasing our journey from becoming a fully paperless company to an innovative "Plant a Tree With Every Mortgage Closed" program.

A Bold Leap: The Paperless Transition

In 2020, IK Financial took a significant step towards sustainability by transitioning to a fully paperless operation. This move not only streamlined our processes but also led to the recycling of 420kg (925.94lb) of paper, setting a precedent in the financial industry for environmental responsibility.

Sustainable Partnerships for a Greener Tomorrow

IK Financial's commitment to sustainability extends beyond internal practices to encompass our interactions with clients and partners. By collaborating with local, eco-friendly businesses, we have ensured that all closing gifts - from recycled paper bags and candles to soaps and keychains - leave a minimal environmental footprint. These products, crafted with care and sustainability in mind, underline IK Financial's dedication to not just financial success but also to the well-being of the planet.

Planting Futures: A Tree With Every Mortgage Closed

Perhaps the most impactful initiative of IK Financial is our "Plant a Tree With Every Mortgage Closed" program. Launched in September 2022, this program embodies our commitment to making the world a greener place. By providing each client with an IK branded 'Plant a Tree Kit' at closing, we not only contribute to a healthier environment but also enrich the lives of our valued clients with a living, breathing reminder of their new beginnings.

The environmental benefits of tree planting are immense, from producing oxygen and stabilizing the climate to reducing water runoff and flood severity. But beyond these, the program fosters a sense of community and shared responsibility towards our planet, making each mortgage closing a step towards a greener future.

A Greener Tomorrow, Today

IK Financial's journey from green to greener is more than just an environmental campaign; it's a blueprint for integrating sustainability into the core of business. As we continue to innovate and lead by example, all our efforts remind us that in the quest for a greener planet, every action counts.

Every time a mortgage is closed with us, IK Financial sends a 'Plant a Tree kit', symbolizing our commitment to sustainability and the client's new beginning.

Are the eco-friendly closing gifts available for all clients?
Yes, all our clients receive eco-friendly closing gifts, including recycled paper bags, candles, soaps, and keychains, as part of our commitment to sustainability.

How has going paperless impacted IK Financial's operations?
