Amber Construction Services, a construction company providing high-quality refurbishment and regeneration services out of Barking, UK, has achieved Planet Mark certification.
This is Amber Construction Services’ second year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. In this Decade of Action, the company wants to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring its own impact on the environment.
Achieving Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders.
Since certifying to Planet Mark, Amber Construction Services has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually. Over the next year, it will continue to reduce its carbon emissions and share its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, Amber Construction Services will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.
“It’s a pleasure to welcome Amber Construction Services to Planet Mark. Certification is a fantastic first step on a sustainability journey. Without precise measurements, progress cannot be tracked. Amber Construction Services has taken the vital steps necessary to begin taking action on its emissions. I applaud the team for their initiative and look forward to many more years of partnership.”
Amber Construction Services is committed to the protection of the environment including prevention of pollution, conservation, sustainable resource use, waste management and minimising the environmental impacts of our activities, products and services. To manage its environmental commitments Amber Construction Services has implemented and maintains an ISO14001 environmental management system to ensure appropriate communication, operational controls, processes and procedures and to fulfil its compliance obligations. Amber Construction Services is also committed to protecting an acre of rainforest with conservation charity Cool Earth.
Sustainable practice presents an opportunity for businesses in all industries. As well as meeting the demands of modern consumers and regulations, a measured and practical approach to sustainability provides resilience against an ever-changing world. Businesses that are able to be agile and responsive to the challenges of climate change will be better placed to thrive in the future.
To recertify next year Amber Construction Services must reduce emissions by 2.5%.
A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
