Working with business is at the heart of what we do at Planet Ark.
We recognise that businesses have potential to greatly impact the environment in either a positive or a negative way. That’s why we work collaboratively with businesses and industries to help drive positive environmental change.
The financial support we receive from corporations and government allows us to deliver our much-loved campaigns, events and resources. A partnership or sponsorship with Planet Ark helps us provide environmental education and support to communities, schools, businesses and individuals across Australia.
There are a number of ways Planet Ark can work with your business to achieve better environmental outcomes.
A partnership with Planet Ark is a truly comprehensive arrangement. We work closely with our partners to help them improve the environmental impact of their business. Planet Ark’s expertise, support and tools can be greatly beneficial to businesses on their sustainability journey.
Each partnership arrangement is different but usually begins with identifying the partner’s key environmental impacts and how we can begin to reduce them. Employee engagement, strategy, product development, marketing and sustainability reviews are examples of areas where we can assist our partners.
More than two decades of running successful, much-loved community campaigns has positioned Planet Ark as one of Australia’s leading and most trusted environmental behaviour change organisations.
We welcome businesses who are aligned with our aims and values to sponsor our campaigns. We can create bespoke packages to meet your objectives, tailored to the area of the community with whom you wish to connect.
We choose to work with businesses that have a commitment to creating positive change.
Australians trust Planet Ark. We were rated by Australians as the #1 organisation for operating in an ethical, responsible and environmentally friendly manner in 2018 (Mobium Group, 2018 Living LOHAS 6).
Consumers look to us for information and advice on how to reduce their impact on the environment. For this reason, we have developed the Endorsed by Planet Ark program, which helps consumers identify products that have a lower environmental impact than other competing products. We give shoppers the confidence to make the best purchasing decision for the environment at the supermarket.
To be part of the program, products must meet our strict environmental standards. We conduct extensive research into the overall environmental impact of the product, examining all areas from the its creation to its eventual disposal, including where the ingredients are derived and its packaging. We also have health, quality and cost standards that the product must meet.
Planet Ark has a wide range of technical skills, industry experience and environmental knowledge. We can provide a range of services to business, government and industry, including:
Business or workplace sustainability training
Employees are increasingly choosing to work for businesses that are ‘doing the right thing’. In a recent Planet Ark study, 80% of employees said they would like more recycling in the workplace and that having recycling facilities at work made them feel they worked for a responsible employer.
Planet Ark’s Workplace Engagement Program can help your business become more sustainable and educate your employees on a range of sustainability topics. Whether your goal is to cut down office waste, introduce new energy efficient processes, get your team out in nature or all of the above, we can help.
By associating your corporate sustainability goals with Planet Ark’s campaigns, we can help you inspire your staff to get behind the key workplace activities that matter to your business.
Whether you're looking for positive inspiration at home, at work or in the community you’ll find something in our suite of e-newsletters.
