Lee Baron, a leading specialist in property management has committed to achieving the Planet Mark certification. The company recognises that it has a corporate social responsibility to manage the environmental impact of its business operations and proactively protect and support its people and communities.
As part of its wider sustainability strategy, Lee Baron engages with all its stakeholders, value-chain, contractors and consultants to encourage an intentional approach to sustainability by minimising their environmental impact. The company will be working with Planet Mark to measure the carbon footprint of its business activities to provide baseline data for an effective sustainability strategy.
By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, Lee Baron will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hopes to encourage continual improvements within its community.
Through Planet Mark, Lee Baron will protect 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 will also help 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.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Lee Baron has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
