Jangro celebrates two years of Planet Mark certification
Jangro, the largest network of independent janitorial distributors in the UK and Ireland, has achieved its second year of being Planet Mark certified.
This renewal means that the company has been successful in reducing its carbon emissions by at least 5% over the past 12 months. In fact, in the latest reporting period (1st Jan 2021 – 31st Dec 2021), emission sources including electricity, natural gas, water, fleet, business travel, waste and paper were reduced by 6.9% per employee.
Through this ongoing accreditation, Jangro is furthering its commitment to realising a brighter and more sustainable future. It continues to measure and reduce its footprint, plan long-term ambitions and motivate its team to innovate. Additionally, it remains committed to measuring its social value contributions (the net social and environmental benefits generated by its team).
“We take our responsibility to the planet seriously and are committed to helping our customers do the same,” says Jo Gilliard, CEO of Jangro. “After all, making more environmentally responsible decisions is essential for the long-term future of the cleaning & hygiene industry. We are proud that as well as ‘talking the talk’, we can demonstrate that real action is taking place.
“Our continued certification with Planet Mark highlights our constant efforts to measure and reduce our footprint, and, hopefully, inspire others in the sector to do the same.”
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Jangro has committed to making a year-on-year reduction of its carbon footprint by 5% annually. Planet Mark is a sustainability certification that verifies and measures carbon and social data to reduce emissions and achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
