Certification story

Law firm Michelmores LLP has achieved the Planet Mark certification. The firm is increasingly mindful that it has a part to play in contributing to the wider social and economic environment in which it operates.

Its commitment to CSR is therefore delivered through multiple strands, from charity partnerships and volunteering to pro bono and sustainability champions. Going a step further, Michelmores is working with Planet Mark to understand and measure its carbon footprint as the first step in identifying ways to minimise its impact on the planet.

Achieving Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in environmental policies in its business operations and engaging its stakeholders. Over the next year, the company will be working towards reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others.

Michelmores will also measure its social value contributions. This refers to the net social and environmental benefits generated by its team. Measuring its social value gives a holistic insight into its positive contributions to not only the environment but also to society, demonstrating its commitment to meaningfully contribute to a better planet for all.

Through Planet Mark, Michelmores 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 Michelmores 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.
