The Planet Mark™ for New Developments
The Planet Mark™ for New Developments Certification demonstrates the sustainability of a new build. The certification signifies that a new development performs beyond compliance by reducing and mitigating lifetime carbon emissions, and supporting local community sustainability projects.
To date more than 25 new developments have been certified to The Planet Mark™.
Prologis UK and Land Securities, two major developers, have achieved The Planet Mark™ for New Developments Certification for customers such as Network Rail, Travelodge, Hi Logistics (LG electronics), Morrison’s, Dunlop Components and Systems and The Pallet Network.
Several new projects in construction are working towards The Planet Mark™ Certification, including a 1million ft2 development for Sainsbury’s.
The Planet Mark™ for New Developments is achieved in stages covering Design & Construction, Community Engagement, Lifecycle Carbon Reduction & Mitigation and Occupier Engagement. The process includes a lifecycle assessment of the development, investment into a local community sustainability project and the mitigation of unavoidable embodied carbon emissions.
The certification process is managed by Planet First, creator and custodian of The Planet Mark™, and delivered with a number of expert partners, including BREEAM and lifecycle assessment consultants, Cool Earth and the Eden Project.
We can work with your marketing and communications teams to help you document the sustainability benefits of your new development.
