Planet Mark

We are proud partners of Planet Mark, a sustainability certification helping organisations measure and reduce their carbon emissions and enhance their contributions to society.

Planet Mark is a sustainability certification for every type of organisation, for real estate and for products. Certification recognises continuous improvement, encourages action and builds an empowered community of like-minded individuals who make a world of difference.

Holders of the Planet Mark are required to measure and reduce their annual carbon emissions associated with business operations by a minimum of 2.5% every year. This process helps them understand and optimise the carbon associated with their energy, travel, water, waste, and procurement.

Each year the new carbon footprint becomes the next year’s baseline, thus driving continuous improvement and helping generate outstanding results.

Delivered through an employee-led approach, the programme helps unlock the passion in your business and builds an intrinsic culture of sustainability from within. It makes communicating your progress and achievements genuine and trusted, which helps your people buy your programme and your brand.

On average, Planet Mark certified businesses make a 12% cut in absolute carbon emissions per year, 16% carbon saving per employee per year through reductions in energy, waste, water, travel and procurement. 99% of members achieve their targets in order to renew their certification year-on-year.

BCFA members can benefit from a 10% discount to Planet Mark certification, by quoting the code BFCA2021.
