We are pleased to announce that Ashdown Phillips & Partners has retained its Planet Mark certification, a testament to the great work being done by our teams in ensuring that sustainability is top of the agenda in all areas of our business.
In the year ending April 2022, we have reduced our overall emissions by 28.1% compared to the previous year, putting us in the top 20% of all Planet Mark certification holders in terms of reductions.
As well as lowering our emissions, we also achieved a Social Value of £58,220, a measure of the benefits achieved through actions such as charitable donations, volunteering and relationships with the local community.
Gary Metcalf, Senior Associate Director & Head of Sustainability said of the certification, ‘We are delighted to have achieved Planet Mark certification for the second year and I would like to thank all my colleagues for their commitment to our sustainability pledge. Going forward, we have committed to a 5% reduction in emissions over the next year, so will be looking closely at our practices to see where we can make further improvements.’
Planet Mark is an internationally recognised sustainability certification for every type of organisation that recognises continuous improvement and encourages action in working towards a more sustainable future.
