Like many other ceremonies, conferences and networking events this year, the Planet Mark Awards are being hosted online to deal with the logistical effects of Coronavirus. Celebrating in this way is however a very sustainable option, which is exactly the value that The Planet Mark are choosing to respect annually.
The Planet Mark Awards reward taking Corporate Social Responsibility in regards to our natural resources and environment – innovating in the necessary direction of sustainability. Through this, the organisation hope to encourage competition where it counts, securing success for the future.
In their second year after beginning in 2018, The Planet Mark Founder Steve Malkin welcomed over 200 guests from across the UK to the sold-out ceremony at Sadlers Wells London.
One of the highlights of the evening included an inspiring speech from guest speaker Anna Ledgard, who said:“My role is to weave, often over years, the web of trusting relationships which make deep artistic collaboration possible."
"Engaging with senior managers & CEOs, negotiating with public institutions & private corporations, building new networks for communication and interaction."
“Me. We. Us. With any meaningful engagement for change we have to start with ourselves with the me.”
The Planet Mark Awards 2019 was delivered with the support of Giant Peach as headline sponsor. “We’re thrilled to support The Planet Mark Awards 2019," they commented. "At Giant Peach we’ve made a commitment to making a sustainable change, and it is fantastic to see so many fellow Planet Mark holders being acknowledged in the annual celebration.”
One of the big winners of the night was Commercial Group who took home Employee Engagement, Best Newcomer and Personal Achievement for their Managing Director Simone Hindmarch. The other individual award, Sustainability Influencer went to Adrian Shah-Cundy at VolkerWessels.
Prologis UK took home the top honours of the night winning Best Company, and have moved on to be the primary sponsor of The Planet Mark Awards 2020!
