Open Energy Market Achieves the Planet Mark Sustainability Certification

At the end of 2021 we began the process to achieve the Planet Mark certification, a government-backed certification that assesses our carbon emissions and net zero processes and guides us through improvement opportunities.

As the provider of ‘smart energy services for a net zero era’ it is important that we practice what we preach and work to measure and manage our own emissions.

From here the OEM x Planet Mark partnership began…

Planet Mark is a member of OEM’s Open Connect partner network and support us in providing carbon measurement and management to our customers.

Customers are presented with the Planet Mark certification which recognises continuous improvement and encourages action to contribute to net zero targets that align with Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi)’s global Net-Zero Standard. 

The Planet Mark has enabled OEM to assess and measure our carbon and social data. We now have a benchmark to measure and communicate our progress and can creating an action plan to reduce our carbon each year.

What is the Planet Mark?

The Planet Mark Business Certification is a recognised symbol of sustainability progress. It demonstrates a business’ commitment to measuring and reducing their carbon emissions, ultimately contributing to their environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria. The certification means that you can report your progress to stakeholders with confidence.

You receive Planet Mark certification once carbon emissions have been verified. You can also choose to measure your social value as a more holistic view of your global impact. You are able to renew and retain your Planet Mark through quantifiable reductions of carbon emissions on an annual basis after year one.

We look forward to introducing the Planet Mark to our customers and further supporting them on their net zero journey.
