Dehns Limited, an intellectual property rights legal firm has achieved the Planet Mark certification. The legal firm is conscious of its environmental impact and seeks to reduce the use of raw materials, energy and supplies and continuously looks for ways to improve its environmental performance.
In this crucial Decade of Action, the company want to ensure that it is a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring its own impact on the environment 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 hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.
Dehns has also measured its social value contributions. This refers to the net social and environmental benefits generated by their team. Measuring social value gives a holistic insight into its positive contributions to not only the environment but also to society, demonstrating its commitment to meaningfully contribute to a better planet for all.
Through Planet Mark, Dehns will be protecting 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.
To recertify next year Dehns must reduce emissions by 2.5%.
A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
