The Planet Mark Programme
1st Sep 2018
William & Son are excited to announce a partnership with the Planet Mark programme, to permanently reduce our carbon footprint across all areas of the business. By measuring our annual carbon cost, our goal is to incrementally reduce our environmental impact on the planet and improve sustainability.
Founded in 2012, Planet Mark has already helped over 100 large businesses, by introducing simple methods to reduce the amount of energy, water, waste and travel that they use.
As part of William & Son’s certification awarded by Planet Mark, we have already helped to protect an acre of endangered rainforest in Central Peru, directly supporting the Asháninka community and the production of Peruvian cacao.
William & Son have committed to reduce emissions across the business each year by 5%, a goal which we believe is realistic and one which will create a positive impact in the fight against climate change. Our aim is for each employee to reduce their footprint by 0.18 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year, equalling 8.10 tonnes as a company.
