Equitix, a developer and fund manager of core infrastructure assets has achieved the Planet Mark certification. The company’s commitment to corporate social responsibility is driven by core values of trust, partnership and excellence and continues to evolve across four key pillars: community, employees, environment and governance.
As part of its wider environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy, Equitix are driven to minimise its impact on the environment and manage its carbon footprint.
In this crucial Decade of Action, it recognises measuring its carbon footprint is a critical step in reviewing and reducing its impact on the planet and society. Over the next year, it will be working with Planet Mark to reduce its carbon emissions and share 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, Equitix 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 has also donated to 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 Equitix must reduce emissions by 2.5%.
A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
