PWS is furthering its Sustainability commitment by becoming Planet Mark certified through measuring and reducing our carbon footprint.
Planet Mark is an internationally recognised Sustainability certification for every type of organisation. A Planet Mark certification recognises continuous improvement, encourages action and builds an empowered community of like-minded individuals who make a world of difference.
We want to positively impact both the Planet and Society in everything we do. That is why PWS have signed up to Planet Mark to empower our people to build a brighter future.
In this crucial United Nations defined Decade of Action, we want to ensure that we are a force for good: positively transforming Society and the Planet by measuring our own impact on the environment.
Over the next year we will be working towards reducing our carbon emissions, and we want to share this journey with our community to encourage others to join us.
Through Planet Mark, we are protecting an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Our pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.
Through our commitment to Planet Mark we are also helping the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.
We will not only be measuring our carbon footprint, but also our social value contributions. This refers to the net social and environmental benefits generated by our team. Measuring our social value gives a holistic insight into our positive contributions to not only the environment but also to society, demonstrating our commitment to meaningfully contribute to a better planet for all.
Our social value will be measured across five categories: our people: including measures such as health and well-being initiatives, community and volunteering, donations, procurement and environmental impacts.
By being more strategic about our social responsibility, we will be able to significantly increase our positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within our community.
Each and every one of us plays an important role in our sustainability commitments, and Planet Mark will help to embed sustainability in our business culture so that we can make continual progress.
We look forward to sharing our sustainability achievements with the wider community. We encourage you to get in touch if you have any questions, suggestions or would like to get involved.
