Metta supports startups, industry & governments with sustainable technology-driven innovation. 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 measuring and reducing its own impact.
Achieving Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders.
This is Metta Partners’ first year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. Metta Partners’ total carbon footprint in the year ending September 2021 was 6.8 tCO2e. Metta Partners’ total carbon per employee in the year prior to September 2021 was 2.0 tCO2e.
“Metta Partners understands the need for change more than most. As experts in helping all types of organisations get off the ground, and do their work in the right way, Metta is perfectly aware that every organisation can improve. The team at Metta Partners have joined Planet Mark to walk the walk on sustainability, giving their team, their clients, and their stakeholders even more confidence in their position as sustainable pioneers.”
Over the next year, Metta 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.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Metta has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
