Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We are committed to educating ourselves, our community and beyond; and helping to fix systems that lead to racism and social injustice. Diversity, equity, and inclusion is at the very core of Planet Mark, it is intrinsic to who we are and everything we believe in. Without it, sustainability itself is unachievable.

Diversity and wellbeing foundations

We are committed to ensuring that diversity and wellbeing are integral foundations of the business and are at the forefront of everything we do.

In 2021, we became a member and advocate of the Mental Health Charter as a commitment to proactively talk about the importance of mental wellbeing in the workplace and reducing the stigma associated with this important topic.

We aim to use our voice at every opportunity to promote the value of our business and people as an employer who is committed and recognises the importance of a diverse workforce.

Recruitment

We are committed to making careers in sustainability accessible for all. A combination of immediate and long-term action will enable the business to diversify the talent landscape at Planet Mark and to build a diverse talent pipeline for the future. 

We ensure all job descriptions and advertisements are unbiased and gender neutral, and all onboarding processes are consistent and fair.

Careers

External relations

We strive to be a business that is known for how it lives the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. It is critical that as a business we embrace diversity in all its iterations. Our customers come to us with a multitude of viewpoints and experiences, and as business leaders we need to be able to respond and engage accordingly.

Volunteering days for employees are funded by the business for two days per person, each year. From January 2022, Planet Mark is dedicated to supporting an external charity that is selected by our employees along with our continued support of Cool Earth and Eden Project.

Career development

We are committed to creating a workplace in which everyone’s individual strengths and differences are valued, and all employees have an opportunity to accelerate their career to reach their full potential.

At Planet Mark, we foster a culture of continuous feedback across the business, empowering employee voice to encourage a sense of both belonging and workplace identity.

Inclusive culture

Cultivating an inclusive work environment helps us attract and retain diverse talent with wide-ranging skills and industry expertise who collaborate to provide the most innovative solutions for our clients.

From recruitment, selection and training to sickness absence and flexible working, we are committed to a robust portfolio of up-to-date diversity and wellbeing policies.
