We are delighted to announce that The Marketing Store Europe has achieved certification to The Planet Mark—an internationally recognised sustainability certification.
This is our first year of business carbon footprint reporting which saw us calculate the carbon footprint of our London, Leeds, Paris and Duisburg offices for the year ending December 2019 and set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.
We also measured our Social Value contributions for the year, in recognition of the contribution our business makes to society. The Marketing Store reported on 9 Social Value measures with the top three sources being employing local staff, providing meaningful work placements (paid internships) and apprenticeships.
First year certification to The Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability by measuring and reducing your carbon footprint and engaging business stakeholders.
As part of the commitment, we will continue to strive to implement an effective system to identify and eliminate potential hazards to the environment. We will also take the challenge to our supply chain.
Pamela Stathaki, Head of Sustainability at The Marketing Store, commented:
“I am delighted that we have been recognised by The Planet Mark for the great work we have been doing to make The Marketing Store a more sustainable business.
Sustainability is one of our key business priorities, so we have been striving hard to make sure our work has a measurable and positive impact on the climate. Our next steps are to take this global and keep innovating sustainable practices for not only us, but our clients too.”
Steve Malkin, Founder and CEO of The Planet Mark, said:
“We are so pleased to be welcoming The Marketing Store to The Planet Mark. The agency has tremendous potential to spread the positive practices put in place wide and far, and from the team’s dedicated work to this point, I feel confident this will happen. The engagement and enthusiasm to create positive change is palpable, and I look forward to this partnership blossoming in the future.”
