SSL Error - Max retries

I am getting the following error:

SSLError: (MaxRetryError("HTTPSConnectionPool(host='', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /api/models/sentence-transformers/all-mpnet-base-v2 (Caused by SSLError(SSLCertVerificationError(1, '[SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed: self signed certificate in certificate chain (_ssl.c:1007)')))"), '(Request ID: 84099c2f-6397-481c-b8e6-4a4b042f69ca)')

Here is the code snippet:

from langchain.text_splitter import SentenceTransformersTokenTextSplitter
splitter = SentenceTransformersTokenTextSplitter(chunk_overlap=0)
text = "Lorem "

I am running windows machine on a company laptop. Using:
python 3.10.11
langchain 0.0.336
requests 2.31.0
huggingface-hub 0.20.2

I cannot use these solutions:
python 3.x - Facing SSL Error with Huggingface pretrained models - Stack Overflow

As I do not have sufficient privelages.

Please help.
