EVORA achieves Planet Mark certification again
We are very proud to announce that EVORA has achieved Planet Mark certification for the 9th year running.
The Planet Mark is an internationally recognised certification based on sustainability standards and its mission is to help us all contribute to a thriving planet as a collective force. The certification represents an organisation’s commitment to sustainability programmes to actively reduce environmental and social harm.
In 2022, EVORA generated £440,962 in social value, £ 4,771 per employee. Social value is the net social and environmental benefit generated to society by an organisation, expressed in ‘£’.
EVORA is proud to share that through our Planet Mark partnership we helped contribute to protect 151,149 acres of rainforest, keep 22,337,002 trees standing and store 9,192,043 tonnes of carbon.
EVORA had a minimum reduction target of 0.6tCO2e in 2022 and contributed toward 5 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are a collection of 17 interrelated goals set by the United Nations to cover a broad range of social and economic development issues.
We look forward to completing the assessment again next year as we continue to drive our commitment to generate further social value opportunities and to reduce our carbon emissions yearly so that together we can all halt climate change.
“Putting the work in to achieve our Planet Mark certification always feels like a great annual achievement. Next year will make it a decade and I look forward to seeing what we achieve next!”Hannah Worthington, EVORA Executive Assistant
“We are thrilled to receive our 9th certification from Planet Mark. I am especially proud of our social value results this year which are a major improvement on our previous performance. As ESG consultants to real estate, a market that is looking at social value more and more, our performance this year has absolutely demonstrated that we practice what we preach! Our efforts this year, from fundraising to volunteering, have made a material improvement to communities across Europe. Next year, it’ll be the world!”Sarah Coughlan, EVORA Associate Director
