BPCA commits to Planet Mark certification

BPCA is furthering our sustainability commitment by becoming Planet Mark certified through measuring and reducing our carbon footprint.

Planet Mark certified British Pest Control Association

Planet Mark is an internationally recognised sustainability certification for every type of organisation, for real estate and for products. A Planet Mark certification recognises continuous improvement, encourages action and builds an empowered community of like-minded individuals who make a world of difference.

In this crucial Decade of Action, we want to ensure that we are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring our own impact on the environment.  

Over the next year, we'll be working towards reducing our carbon emissions, and we want to share this journey with our members to encourage others to join us.

Through Planet Mark we are protecting an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Our pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.  

Through our commitment to Planet Mark we are 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.   

We look forward to sharing our sustainability achievements with members. We encourage you to get in touch if you have any questions, suggestions or would like to get involved.
