The team behind The Planet Mark showed how to remedy boring and ineffective communications in sustainability at UBM’s Energy and Environment Expo with a graffiti backdrop.

Visitors came to find out more about our certification, how to improve and measure sustainability in their organisation, and helped us to create graffiti stencil designs for their own walls at work, communicating better sustainable messaging to colleagues and employees.

We also held two seminars detailing the business case for sustainability and how to drive down costs through efficient energy, carbon, waste and water use. The seminars were led by Steve Malkin, CEO of Planet First, provider of The Planet Mark.

UBM achieve Planet Mark certification for the Protection and Management Show

The Protection & Management Series is already certified against the international standard ISO 20121 for Sustainable Event Management but this year, the Planet First team are measuring the carbon footprint of the entire Protection and Management Series. Awarding the event with The Planet Mark certification signifies UBM’s commitment to improve their emissions and environmental impacts in producing their next Protection & Management Series over the coming 12 months.

Planet Mark certified businesses in the Protection and Management Series also included Harrow Green, A Group, This Week in FM and Bywaters, who launched their recent certification at the event and offer waste management and recycling services across London.

Running alongside the Facilities Show and the Safety and Health Expo, the Energy and Environment Expo was the ideal forum for energy and facilities professionals to discuss sustainability issues and learn more about measuring carbon footprints and employee, occupier, supplier and stakeholder engagement.

Sustainability is increasingly important in the Energy and Facilities sectors. Our certification measures and monitors carbon, engages employees, saves money, enhances your brand, adheres to industry regulation and helps you win business. We’re here to inspire Energy and Facilities professionals to introduce, or develop sustainability in their business.” Steve Malkin, CEO of Planet First
