Certification story

As a responsible gardening and leisure business, Scotsdale Garden Centres has achieved the Planet Mark certification. Scotsdale Garden Centres value everything to do with the environment and believes it has a responsibility to ensure a stable, pollution-free future for the planet and wider society.

Over the next year, the agency will continue reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. Scotsdale Garden Centres are committed to continual improvements in environmental performance, including advising and influencing its customers and employees in sound environmental practices.

By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the company will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Through Planet Mark, Scotsdale Garden Centres have protected 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.

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.
