Groundcare and lawncare machinery specialists RT Machinery have achieved the Planet Mark. RT Machinery understand the importance of looking after the environment. Their focus stretches beyond its products to every aspect of business operations. From recycling waste whenever possible to efficient use of resources, the company continually find ways to improve it contribution to the environment.
Looking to strengthen its environmental credentials, RT Machinery is working with Planet Mark to reduce its carbon emissions and share its journey with its community to inspire others. Understanding and measuring its carbon footprint is the first step in identifying ways to minimise its impact on the planet. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, it will be able to increase its positive impact significantly and hopes 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 directly supports the Asháninka community in Central Peru.
It has also helped 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 RT Machinery must reduce emissions by 2.5%.
A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
