RECOGNISING OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENTS

The Planet Mark certification recognises continuous improvements, encourages action, and builds an empowered community of like-minded individuals.

The Planet Mark Awards returned for a third year, at a virtual ceremony, celebrating the incredible successes and initiatives of holders.

Recognising the work undertaken by businesses during their reporting period of 2019 to cut their carbon footprint, engage with their employees and communicate their achievements, the 13 categories of awards were classified into four main themes, aligned with The Planet Mark certification structure: measure; engage; communicate, and overall.
