THE PLANET MARK START! PROGRAMME

We see a world where we all contribute to a thriving planet and are a collective force for good. 

Our lives have dramatically changed in 2020. As we begin to rebuild, we have an opportunity re-imagine a better future, one that balances our economic, environmental, and social impacts. How will your organisation fit into this new economy?   

The Planet Mark Start! is a digital and interactive programme, delivered by sustainability experts, to help you build back better. Whether you are a sole-trader or start-up this course will give you a well-rounded approach to kickstart your sustainability journey.

What Will You Get From This Half-Day Course? 

  • Identify the global sustainability issues affecting every business  
  • Understand the business case for taking action on climate issues 
  • Create a bespoke sustainability vision and a plan to realise it 
  • Learn how to engage your employees, suppliers, customers and communities 
  • Discover how to effectively communicate your sustainability progress 
  • Receive certification to The Planet Mark Start! programme

We recognise the challenges many small businesses face as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, therefore, we are running The Planet Mark Start! Free of charge to businesses up to five people through the end of 2020. Our next event is September and we will add further dates. Sign up and be the first to know about our upcoming workshops.

We found it really useful and a fun. We only want to do good, and I am really glad we are able to collaborate with TPM. Much appreciated advice.
