Moving Brands, an independent, global creative and innovation partner led by creative and strategic business people, has achieved certification to The Planet Mark.
This is Moving Brands’ first year of business carbon footprint reporting and certification to The Planet Mark. Moving Brands’ total carbon footprint in year ending September 2019 was 144.7 tCO2e and the relative carbon footprint was 2.4 tCO2e per employee. Moving Brands’ market-based total carbon footprint in year ending September 2019 was 128.8 tCO2e.
It has calculated the carbon footprint of its London, San Francisco and New York operational sites for the year ending September 2019 and set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually. Location based electricity accounts for 14% of the total carbon emissions and natural gas accounts for 10%. Scope 3 emissions (water, waste, paper and business travel) account for 76% of total emissions.
Steve Malkin, Founder and CEO of The Planet Mark, commented: “We need more companies like Moving Brands. The dedication to the cause of combating climate change is clear to see, from the ambitious goals on carbon to the ability to help its stakeholders become more sustainable. As well as acting on climate in its own back yard, the company is spreading sustainable ideas as far as it can. I have no doubt that the brand will work with The Planet Mark to carve a path toward sustainability.”
First year certification to The Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders.
Moving Brands makes its clients both successful and truly sustainable. Its work results in products and experiences that people love, enduring purpose-led brands and innovative new businesses. The company also already has existing goals, such as setting carbon neutral targets and implementing an initiative called ‘Fuel’. Fuel is used to review everything that Moving Brands buys — from fruits to finance to flights. Completely realigning the company’s posture all the items bought and the products and services endorsed come from brands that share its values. This has been achieved without increasing its budgets.
The innovation industry must realise its important place in the fight against climate change. The decade of climate action is the perfect moment to start or progress on a sustainable journey, and innovation consultancies can both respond to the demand for sustainable innovation, and use their powerful networks to advance practices and solutions that help alleviate the impacts of climate change.
