Our sustainability

Since our inception in 2012, we have put sustainability at the heart of everything we do. We believe that we must all work together to halt the climate crisis and embrace sustainability, and Planet Mark members share this common purpose.

Our commitment

Our sustainability strategy “Make the World of Difference” brings all our sustainability activity together in one plan, thereby enabling us to be more agile to change and understand the interconnectivity between our environmental, social and economic impacts as a whole. This way, we will achieve greater business benefits and a greater positive impact in the world; this is what we call, Total Value.

Our sustainability strategy, vision and goals 


The world is at a social and environmental tipping point, so our contribution to creating a thriving planet requires bigger aspirations and urgent action. This is why we are setting an ambitious vision to make Planet Mark the most easily recognised sign of progress in sustainability.

To make this happen we have set 25 ambitious 2024 goals, aligned to the global SDGs. We know there will be bumps along the way, so setting targets on a yearly basis will give us the freedom within our framework to adjust our tactics with agility and ensure we are doing everything we can to achieve these long-term goals. 

“Our vision is to make Planet Mark
the most easily recognised sign of progress
in sustainability.”

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion 

We are committed to educating ourselves, our community and beyond; helping to fix systems that lead to racism and social injustice. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are 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. In 2021, we became a member and advocate of the Mental Health Charter, a Disability Confident Registered Employer and were proud to publish our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement.

Net zero emissions 

Planet Mark has offset carbon emissions equivalent to twice its operational carbon footprint by purchasing nine CO2 offsets and planting an additional 100 trees with a Gold Standard portfolio.

We’re also committed to completing our own Zeroby30 programme and will be net zero no later than 2030.

Looking forward  

Our sustainability strategy is in constant development as we seek to push the boundaries of sustainable business. As such, we measure and re-evaluate our sustainability goals every year. This year, a new more encompassing declaration on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion was created to embed DEI performance indicators into all of our work.

From January 2022, Planet Mark is dedicated to supporting an external charity that is selected by our employees.
