Certification story

Assura, a developer and manager of high quality, sustainable medical centres has achieved the Planet Mark certification. Sustainability is at the core of its strategy and efforts to support the NHS’ commitment to becoming the world’s first net carbon zero health system. This is part of its wider SixBySix strategy which aims to maximise the businesses’ contribution to society while minimising the impact on the environment.

The company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually. From supply chain engagement and reducing energy consumption to grant funding and creating opportunities in its community, Assura is embedding sustainability practices throughout business operations.

Over the next year, Assura will be working towards reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the company will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hopes to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Through Planet Mark, the company has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

It is also helping the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.

Future targets
