Planet Mark’s business certification provides the perfect platform for commercially resilient and sustainable change by measuring and reducing your carbon footprint, year on year, engaging your staff and stakeholders and supporting you in communicating your progress with authenticity and confidence.
Our Certification takes you from continuous improvement to transformational change.
By 2050, every UK business has to be net-zero by law. Understanding the impact your organisation has on the planet is the first step in identifying the actions you need to take to achieve this.
Understanding your organisations carbon footprint is the first step in any effective carbon reduction strategy. By providing a baseline of emissions broken down by the component parts, your carbon footprint helps you to understand where the opportunities exist to make immediate and meaningful reductions. With a decade of experience analysing annual carbon data for hundreds of organisations, our carbon analysts are able to easily identify and recommend areas you might want to tackle first.
Our proven process has been designed to accelerate your journey to net zero while simultaneously supporting commercial resilience through stakeholder engagement and growth through favourable brand association and enhanced sustainability perceptions. Our framework identifies operational inefficiencies and highlights where your strategy should focus in order to drive the most impact for your business and the planet.
Working with Planet Mark has enabled us to better quantify our carbon emissions and social value contribution, allowing us to target the areas where we can have the greatest impact in reducing our carbon footprint, and improve our contributions to society. This will allow us to establish a structured plan moving forward, with the ultimate goal of achieving net zero emissions. Obtaining external certification for our efforts is key to our transparency, when communicating with our key stakeholders.
