Chime Communications, the Global Challenger Network, delivering world-class specialisms across sport, communications and B2B, has achieved Planet Mark certification.
This is Chime Communications’ first year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. Since certifying to Planet Mark, the company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.
Chime Communications’ total carbon footprint in the year ending December 2020 was 1,278.6 tCO2e. Chime Communications’ total carbon per employee in the year ending 2020 was 0.6 tCO2e.
If Chime Communications achieves its carbon footprint reduction target, it will save the same amount of carbon as is sequestered by 78 acres of forest in one year.
“Chime Communications has taken a great step forward by becoming Planet Mark certified. The communications agency has taken a thorough look at the impact it has on the planet, and has committed to make reductions on this impact year-on-year. I commend the team’s work to reach this point – it takes courage to take the necessary climate action is such uncertain times for business. It is, however, a step that all businesses must take, and with certification, Chime Communications has put itself at the forefront of sustainable change.”
Chime Communications has made sustainable commitments beyond its pledge to continually reduce its carbon footprint. Chime has also pledged to protect an acre of endangered rainforest in South America with Cool Earth. The agency has also worked with a number of clients, including Unilever, to help bring their sustainability policies to life through targeted communications campaigns.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Chime Communications has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
