Your sustainable business starts here

The Planet Mark™ Start! Programme


We believe that every business can have positive impacts on society and the environment.  When it comes to sustainability, we all have a part to play.  Irrespective of how we approach sustainability, we are now seeing the impact that public sentiment and opinion can have if businesses don’t keep up with the pace of change.

Commonly referred to as ‘The Blue Planet Effect’, 2018 has seen the most rapid progress in tackling single use plastic.  And it’s only the start, as with it comes significant business risk and opportunity to those that accept and adopt change.

“Companies should look at this change as similar to the digital revolution, that anyone who is not on board will be left behind!,  Erik Solheim”Head of UN Environment

So what’s your equivalent to the plastic straw?  And how does your sustainability agenda represent your brand and business?



Our programme will give you a clear understanding of the business benefits of sustainability and provide you with the tools, resources and support to take action. It will ensure your business or business idea is fit for the future. We will also help you communicate your progress so you can create momentum, which will help you to go further and challenge yourself for bigger results.
