Green Mark Level 3 Accreditation achieved!

We are proud to say that we have now achieved the level 3 Accreditation with Green Mark, an internationally recognised environmental accreditation for companies that are conducting business to recognised environmental standards.

To move from level 2 to level 3 we had to further develop our action plan and complete the following:

  • Submit information about the business
  • Answer questions and provide supporting evidence
  • Record and pledge to reduce our emissions and environmental impact and show an understanding of the related legislation
  • Measure and take action to reduce our Carbon footprint to meet our objectives and targets
  • Manage and pledge to reduce waste generated by our business
  • Introduce sustainable practices for saving energy, reducing water use and using less materials
  • Commit to helping to improve the local environment
  • Review our procurement criteria to recognise the green credentials of our suppliers

The Environmental Management Representative within the firm , Lisa Williams, says “The level 3 accreditation was a significant step up from levels 1 and 2 and I am really proud of Plummer Parsons for committing so wholeheartedly to the Environmentally friendly ethos represented by this accreditation.

The firm have purchased Carbon Offsets in their commitment to zero out the emissions created by the company for the last year.  We may be just one company in the business community but if everyone plays their part and does as much as they can to reduce their Carbon footprint and environmental impact then the positive effects could be huge.”.
