Certification story

Law firm Dentons UK and Middle East LLP has achieved the Planet Mark certification.

In this crucial Decade of Action, the firm wants to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet. The company will be working with Planet Mark to reduce its carbon emissions and share its journey with its community to inspire others. Understanding and measuring its carbon footprint is the first step in identifying ways to minimise its impact on the planet. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, Dentons will be able to increase its positive impact significantly and hopes to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Through Planet Mark, the company has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth directly supports the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

It has also helped the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.

Future targets

Reduce carbon emissions by at least 2.5% each year

To recertify next year Dentons UK and Middle East LLP 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.
