Planet Mark differs from other sustainability certifications by offering a unique and simple 3-step process that supports members achieve their sustainability goals. These 3-steps go beyond just measurement of your carbon footprint; they help you to engage your entire business, as well as communicate your sustainability strategy more broadly.
On average, Planet Mark certified businesses make a 12% cut in absolute carbon emissions per year, 16% carbon saving per employee per year through reductions in energy, waste, water, travel and procurement. 99% of our members achieve their targets in order to renew their certification year-on-year.
Understanding the impact that your business has on the planet is essential for identifying your progress in making reductions. We have created a simple way for you to get a clear picture of all your environmental impacts using our metric - carbon dioxide. We can also measure your contributions to society by putting a financial value on the impact of your social activities.
We appreciate that Covid-19 has meant changes to your business. We have found ways to adapt our certification methodology to overcome these changes. You can find out more about our Covid-19 response here.
Employees are the key to achieving your sustainability goals. Our engagement experts will help motivate your employees to change behaviour, innovate and take ownership of solutions. To help you put a sustainability strategy in place, we provide toolkits on many subjects, workshops that help you focus on the most important issues, and advice on how to plan long-term ambitions.
The Planet Mark is an easily recognisable symbol of sustainability progress and will bring credibility to your activities. Through your reach and influence you have the ability to encourage others to take action. By putting your certificate in the public domain, you can be transparent about your sustainability progress while building trust and loyalty with your customers and supply chain.
