Goodrich Consulting LLP, a construction consultancy has achieved the Planet Mark certification. In this crucial Decade of Action, the company want to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by reducing its own impact.
This is Goodrich Consulting’s first year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. Since certifying, the company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.
Goodrich Consulting’s total carbon footprint in the year ending March 2021 was 55.0 tCO2e. Goodrich Consulting’s total carbon per employee in the year prior to March 2021 was 3.7 tCO2e.
Goodrich Consulting has also had their Social Value contribution measured by Planet Mark, which amounted to £4,798, and was derived from its employees and charitable donations.
Over the next year, the consultancy 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 firm will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope 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.
“Goodrich Consulting is a company with longstanding expertise in energy and climate change. The services they offer help their clients to take sensible, planet-positive decisions every day they do business. With Planet Mark certification, environmental considerations are embedded into every area of their business. This will give customers an even greater peace of mind, and ensure that everyone knows Goodrich Consulting is a company with drive and purpose. Well done to the team.”
Goodrich Consulting specialises in energy efficiency in industry, buildings and transport, with in-depth knowledge of climate change. We’ve worked with government and industry on the EU Emissions Trading Scheme, UK Climate Change Agreements and other regulatory initiatives. Practical services include the introduction of energy management systems (both strategic development and implementation), energy audits for manufacturers and evaluation of savings opportunities, especially in engineering industries.
Energy efficiency companies are in high demand. As businesses and property owners begin to better understand the impact of their energy use, both financially and environmentally, they will turn to the efficiency industry for solutions. Companies in the space will benefit from subsidising their expertise with a well-rounded sustainability policy. Not only will this demonstrate efficiency throughout the supply chain, but it will also demonstrate a determination to do business in the right way.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Goodrich Consulting LLP has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
