London, UK – March 15, 2023 – Egress continues to demonstrate its commitment to sustainability by partnering with Planet Mark to reduce its carbon footprint.

The Planet Mark sustainability certification is awarded annually to businesses that are committed to cutting their carbon emissions. Certification involves annual verification of carbon footprint data, which should demonstrate a year-on-year footprint reduction in line with the SBTi's Net-Zero Corporate Standard.

The certification also provides assurance of employee engagement on environmental issues. This enables Egress to further embed sustainability into the business culture and decisions, driving innovation and a continual progress toward the outlined goals.  

Ed Bodey, Group General Counsel and Company Secretary at Egress said: “As a global and growing business, Egress wants to reduce and minimize its impact on the environment. We are all rightly proud of what we have achieved to date, but we see this partnership with Planet Mark as the most important step.  Planet Mark will allow us to unlock valuable insights into our business and our supply chains and enable real change through 2023 and beyond. The anticipated reduction in our carbon footprint is core to the commitments that we made when signing up to Tech Zero in 2021.”

Steve Malkin, Found and CEO at Planet Mark said: “We are proud to be working with Egress who have recently achieved their first year of Business Certification with Planet Mark. The Planet Mark team are proud to be working with Egress as we know that bringing together the best of people, technology and nature is incredibly important to sustained progress against the climate crisis. We look forward to seeing their journey towards ongoing carbon emission reduction in the coming years.”

Ed Bodey is a member of Lawyers for Net Zero, an organization working with one of the most influential sectors in society: the in-house legal community, to deliver significant climate action.
