Certification story

Samsung KX, experiential retail brought to life has achieved the Planet Mark certification. In this crucial Decade of Action, the company want to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring and reducing its own environmental impact.

The ‘Excellent’ BREEAM graded retail space has reduced its carbon emissions by 30.9% over the year and will be continue minimising its impact and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the firm will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Through Planet Mark, Samsung KX 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 is 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.

Consumers across the world are taking greater notice of the sustainability of the products they buy. Purchasing power is increasingly being used to support causes and promote a better world. Brands must respond to the greater scrutiny of the modern consumer by undertaking clearly communicated, rigorous and transparent sustainability strategies.
