Certification story

GSS Southern Services Limited provides professional, high quality and reliable cleaning services at competitive prices. The company work on buildings of all sizes and across a broad range of businesses, including both public and private sector.

In this crucial Decade of Action, GSS Southern Services wants to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring its own impact on the environment. This is GSS Southern’s second year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. Since certifying, the company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.

GSS Southern’s total carbon footprint in the year ending July 2021 was 33.5 tCO2e and total carbon per employee in the year prior to July 2021 was 3.5 tCO2e, an increase of 16%. Over the next year, the company will continue to reduce its carbon emissions and share its journey with the community to encourage others to join the movement.

Steve Malkin
Founder and CEO
Planet Mark
“I am so pleased to welcome GSS Southern to the Planet Mark community. GSS Southern has taken an important step forward by committing to continuous carbon footprint reduction. As we continue through the decade of climate action, we need more companies like GSS Southern to realise the importance of business in creating a sustainable world. Well done to the team on taking a vital first step, and I look forward to making change together.”

Certification story

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

The company are also helping 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.

Businesses are turning to their supply chains for innovative, sustainable solutions to help reduce their emissions. Companies working in facilities services must respond in kind to this dramatic shift in market forces. From the products stocked to the means of delivering and disposing of products and services, an environmental focus must be applied throughout the business to implement sustainability across the business.
