The Planet Mark Certification

Holders of The Planet Mark Business Certification are required to measure and reduce their annual carbon emissions associated with business operations. The process helps them understand and optimise energy, travel, water and waste.

Each year the new carbon footprint becomes the next year’s baseline, thus driving continuous improvement and helping generate our outstanding results. It’s straightforward and aimed at organisations of all shapes and sizes, anywhere in the world, and at any stage on their sustainability journey, so that we can all contribute to a better society and environment.

Holders of The Planet Mark deliver results that go beyond compliance, reaching new levels of sustainability and engaging their people in the process. Together we are proving that sustainability is good for business and that acting responsibly is the new norm. We believe every organisation can be sustainable and can contribute to a planet where everyone can thrive.
