TP Health, an occupational health and safety services provider focusing on improving employee wellbeing and delivering statutory compliance both in the UK and Europe, has achieved Planet Mark certification.
This is TP Health’s second year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. Since certifying to Planet Mark, the company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.
TP Health’s total carbon footprint in the year ending December 2020 was 67.4 tCO2e, a reduction of 34.3%. TP Health’s total carbon per employee in the year ending 2020 was 1.0 tCO2e, a reduction of 33.6%.
TP Health’s carbon footprint reduction saved the same amount of carbon as preventing a car from driving around the world four times.
“TP Health has done a stellar job in their second year of Planet Mark certification. Reducing carbon by nearly a third, the team has reinforced its original commitment to the environment with some gusto. There are well documented links between the effects of climate change on the health and wellbeing of our population, so it is natural for TP Health to want to tackle both simultaneously. Well done to the team for all of its efforts.”
“Mounting research proves humanity’s contribution to enhanced global warming, and the consequences of an unsustainable organisation are clear. As TP Health specialises in health & well-being, using both proactive and reactive measures to support people in working environments, got us thinking…. The environment we are committed to being only a small part of something much, much bigger that is undeniably a crucial part of our everyday health and wellness—Our planet.”
TP Health has taken a number of measures become more sustainable. As well as committing to a reduction of carbon emissions by 5% annually, the company has pledged to protect an acre of rainforest with the conservation charity Cool Earth. The company is also contributing to four Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and five SDG targets.
Sustainability presents an opportunity that must be capitalised on for those in the occupational health business. CEOs and business leaders across all industries consistently rank sustainability and climate change as one of the most pressing concerns for modern companies. But for those working in occupational health, the impacts are closer to home. The impact of climate change on our buildings, homes and workspaces is shown to have detrimental impacts on the health and wellbeing of its occupants. For companies working in occupational health, tackling environmental issues is not just an issue of planetary importance, but a vital indicator of expertise in a company’s core competency areas.
