The Planet Mark is a sustainability certification which recognises outstanding achievements, encourages action, and builds an empowered community of like-minded individuals.
The Programme helps ''to measure and reduce your carbon emissions, energy and water consumption, your travel, and the amount of waste you create. And we will help you to engage your own people in the process, to help you save money, build a stronger brand and continue to thrive''.
Our vision for Hive fits with The Planet Mark philosophy completely so it was an easy decision to apply for The Planet Mark Environmental Certification. Working with their knowledgeable team, who supported us throughout the process, we put together a large data sheet, which looked at various aspects of our business, measuring our environmental impact - starting from recycling practices at the head office to the number of beehives we adopted.
It was great to receive our Environmental Certification as the commitment to sustainability is one of our founding principles, and we were advised by The Planet Mark's certification team to continue our journey with them and apply for the Social Value Certification as well, measuring our social impact. As a company operating with strong ethical principles, we were thrilled to work in that direction too and here are our certificates which we are very proud to display and continue to work to improve our indicators even more.
