Certification story

Couch Perry Wilkes, the specialist in designing and integrating the full range of energy solutions into existing and new buildings, has achieved the Planet Mark certification.

Achieving the Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders.

Over the next year, Couch Perry Wilkes will continue to work toward reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, it will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Steve Malkin
Founder and CEO
Planet Mark
“It is great to see Couch Perry Wilkes join us at Planet Mark. As a team working to make buildings more energy efficient, making sustainable change is their bread and butter, but I am delighted to see their rigorous approach to tackling its own carbon emissions. More companies working to reduce our collective carbon footprint must turn the lens on themselves, and I’m glad to say Couch Perry Wilkes are leading the way on sustainability.”

As specialists in delivering buildings using innovation, creativity and technical expertise, Couch Perry Wilkes is no stranger to sustainable practice. Its expertise is in driving down the use of resources by efficient and effective measures whilst improving the built environment and its impact on the wider landscape. Through its in-house sustainability team, the company can take clients on a holistic low-carbon journey from efficient building design through to renewable technologies and PassivHaus principles.

Building and facilities management has a huge role to play in cutting carbon emissions in line with the Paris climate goals. The built environment is a huge emitter of carbon, and increasing the efficient use of its buildings is a necessary and practical means to reduce pollution. Companies operating in the buildings and facilities management industry must recognise the need to robustly demonstrate their own sustainability credentials. As well as reinforcing a company’s own environmental credentials, a willingness to lead by example can provide a useful tool in client acquisition and retention. 

Future targets

Reduce carbon emissions by at least 2.5% each year

To recertify next year Couch Perry Wilkes must reduce emissions by 2.5%.

Aim to reduce carbon emissions by 5% each year

A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
