Certification story

Home to the Grocers’ Company since 1426, Grocers’ Hall is steeped in tradition with modern offerings. It is a working livery company for its members, provides charity giving and is available for venue hire.

In this Decade of Action, Grocers’ Hall wants to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring its own impact on the environment.

Looking to strengthen its environmental credentials, the company is 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, it will be able to increase its positive impact significantly and hopes to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Through Planet Mark, Grocers’ Hall 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 Grocers’
Hall 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.
