Tamlite is re-awarded Planet Mark

Tamlite Lighting Re-awared Planet Mark

Tamlite Lighting has been re-awarded the Planet Mark certification for its commitment to sustainable best practice throughout its operations.

The Planet Mark framework offers external verification of Tamlite’s carbon reduction of 13.5 per cent relative to turnover.

Planet Mark is a global sustainability certification that recognises businesses that are taking positive action to reduce their environmental impact.

To achieve certification, businesses must measure their carbon footprint, set ambitious reduction targets and implement a comprehensive sustainability plan.

Tamlite was re-certified by Planet Mark alongside its sister companies CEF and Wrexham Mineral Cables.

The certification process applies scrutiny to companies’ Net Zero actions, including accurate and transparent carbon reporting across Scope 1, 2 and core Scope 3 emissions.

Tamlite – one of just 600 firms to carry the Planet Mark badge – achieved its listing thanks to investments in energy-efficient technologies, waste reduction measures, materials recycling and use of sustainable materials in its luminaires.

Tamlite uses Planet Mark’s reporting tools to present its carbon footprint data clearly and comprehensibly. This, says the firm, acts as a shield against greenwashing, thereby giving it the confidence to communicate its sustainability efforts.

‘We are delighted to end 2023 on a high,’ John Allden, managing director of Tamlite Lighting, told the Circular Lighting Report. ‘Recertification to this trusted framework aligns with our sustainable development goals, as well as Planet Mark’s, with all parties recognising that transparent communication is essential for transformational change.

‘We have made tremendous strides in delivering on our sustainability ambitions – and this certification system offers external proof of what we are doing.

‘We know that transparency is vital to our relationships with our customers and specifiers; Planet Mark offers a much-respected ‘mark of confidence’ in sustainability that validates our progress. We look forward to sharing this story over the months ahead.’
