Certification story

Solo Service Group, one of the largest independent cleaning service providers in the UK has achieved the Planet Mark certification.

In this crucial Decade of Action, the group want to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet. The company is committed to work collaboratively with all key stakeholders on environmental initiatives. By fostering a culture of continuous improvement and environmental stewardship, the company aim to fundamentally reduce the environmental footprint of business operations.

Building on its ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard, Solo Service Group are looking to strengthen its environmental credentials. The environmental team will be working with Planet Mark to reduce its carbon emissions and share its journey with its community to inspire others. Understanding and measuring its carbon footprint is the first step in identifying ways to minimise its impact on the planet and achieve net zero carbon by 2030. 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 company 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.

Solo Service Group has achieved Carbon Neutral status.
