Will you empower all your employees, suppliers and customers 

to take climate action?

2020-2030 will be the most important decade in our history. What we do in this period will determine the course for humanity. If we act now, we can avert irreversible environmental damage and hold on to a planet that is fit for life, now and in the future. As implored by the UN, we must all commit to a Decade of Action. This mission has never been more critical.

Holders of The Planet Mark are bound by a common purpose: to help all people contribute to a thriving planet. We have no choice but to step forward; we see the cost of inaction played out in real time daily in the news.

If people ask where you were when the climate debate became a national and international movement, you can say I stood up and I did my bit. Let’s make this the decade we put a stop to climate change. Join us in The Decade of Action.

Many companies who are on the journey to tackle the climate crisis struggle most with managing the carbon footprint outside of their control (scope 3 emissions). Host a #1Planet1Choice event with your suppliers to showcase your sustainability achievements. We will help them understand global issues, the business case for sustainability and give them the tools they need to take climate action.
