Steve Malkin
Founder and CEO
Planet Mark
“Well done to Heirlooms Linens on another year of Planet Mark certification. A concrete and ongoing commitment to reduce carbon not demonstrates foresight and planetary awareness that will give its customers confidence in the positive intentions of the business. We look forward to working with Heirlooms Linens to build on these declarations, and drive change in the business to reduce emissions year-on-year.”

Businesses must embrace the planetary and market need to transition to sustainable products. Beyond the global shift towards low-carbon alternatives, the modern consumer is increasingly aware of the supply chain of the products they buy. From renewable energy used in production to sourcing ethical and responsible components, companies have an opportunity to create a sustainable story for their products that can benefit both the planet and profitability.  

Future targets

Reduce carbon emissions by at least 2.5% each year

To recertify next year Heirlooms Linens 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.
