Certification story

United by a commitment to green spaces and the wider community, The Gardens Group inspire, educate and engage with gardeners of all ages and levels of expertise. The team works regularly with schools, charities and community groups to raise awareness of their initiatives while promoting gardening along the way.

In this crucial Decade of Action, the company wants to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring its own impact on the environment. Over the next year, The Gardens Group are committed to tackling climate change and inspiring others to join the movement.

Through Planet Mark, the company are protecting 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.

The company 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. The Gardens Group look forward to sharing its sustainability achievements with the wider community.

Future targets
