Certification story

Leading supplier of cleaning & catering products Bowak has achieved the Planet Mark certification.

In this Decade of Action, the company want to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by reducing any negative impact on the environment.

Through its exceptional service, the company encourages its team and customers to ‘Change for the Better’ – an ethos applied to everything it does. The company acknowledges that it takes the collective effort of all individuals to make an impact, and it believes that small changes can lead to significant differences.

Building on its ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations Bowak is working Planet Mark to reduce carbon emissions and share its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, they will be able to increase its positive impact significantly and hopes to encourage continual improvements within its community.

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

Bowak has also helped 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.
