The benefits

The climate crisis is one of the biggest challenges of our time, and having a sustainability strategy is no longer a ‘nice to have’ for businesses; it is becoming an imperative. A Planet Mark certification will future-proof your business and ensures you are attracting and retaining the best people.

A competitive advantage

A high-quality sustainability certification through Planet Mark will help make your bids and tenders stronger. It demonstrates to stakeholders, including customers and investors, that your company is having a positive impact on the planet.

Attract and retain talent

Did you know that 76% of millennials consider social and environmental commitments when deciding where to work? And research shows that employees are more satisfied with their jobs when the company promotes sustainability. Becoming Planet Mark certified can help you attract and retain the very best people for the job.

Future-proofed business

Leading businesses around the world are adapting to a changing world, meeting global challenges with sustainable solutions. A sustainability certification will help you benefit from a future-proofed business.

A healthy bottom line

On average, certified businesses make a 12% carbon saving per employee through reductions in energy, waste, water, travel and procurement. Less expenditure means greater profit.
