Certification story

The professional society for weather and climate Royal Meteorological Society has achieved the Planet Mark certification. In this Decade of Action, the company want to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet.

Working towards achieving net zero by 2030, the company is working with Planet Mark to reduce its carbon emissions and share its journey with its community to inspire others. 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, the Royal Meteorological Society has protected 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.

The Royal Meteorological Society will also help 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.
