MJL, an independent advertising agency offering 30 years of experience in healthcare advertising and communications has achieved the Planet Mark. 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 MJL’s second year of business carbon footprint reporting. In this Decade of Action, MJL wants to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring its own impact on the environment.
Since certifying to Planet Mark, the company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually. Over the next year, it 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, MJL will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.
Through Planet Mark, the agency has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Their pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.
Through Planet Mark’s certification, they are 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, MJL has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
