Through its long-standing partnership with Cool Earth, The Planet Mark™ is protecting rainforest while delivering wider social and environmental benefits.
The Planet Mark™ is an internationally recognised and trusted sustainability certification programme on a mission to empower organisations and their people to make year-on-year progress on sustainability.
Through its partnership with Cool Earth, The Planet Mark™ is able to offer organisations that are looking to certify their New Developments the opportunity to mitigate 110% of a building's embodied carbon through avoided deforestation.
To date, The Planet Mark™ has helped lock in over 2 million tonnes of CO2, this way – thereby securing the long-term future of the world’s most precious forest.
"Cool Earth enables us to protect endangered rainforest by supporting the people and communities that live there. Their projects are reducing the carbon emissions from the land and maintaining communities and biodiversity by keeping the rainforest standing. We believe that people are at the heart of sustainable solutions and Cool Earth projects allow our clients to have a positive impact and make change happen."
Steve Malkin, CEO, The Planet Mark™.
The Planet Mark™ is also partnered with the iconic Eden Project. Together we are putting climate change and the environment at the top of the business agenda.
The Planet Mark™ is partnering with 16 Asháninka villages to save over 8,000 acres of rainforest in Peru.
The Asháninka are Peru’s largest indigenous nation and until now have lived deep in the heart of the amazon rainforest. Today, the deforestation frontline has arrived on their doorstep. Our Asháninka Partnership is in the Ene Valley, one of the world’s most at-risk areas. Illegal logging and the cocaine trade are destroying the forest. With the support of The Planet Mark™, Cool Earth is linking villages together to shield millions of acres of neighbouring forest.
