A step in the right direction: Aurora’s commitment to sustainability

by Sarah Nixon . March 2022

We’re proud to announce that we’ve achieved the Planet Mark Year 1 Business Certification. This is an incredible achievement involving the entire business.

The Planet Mark Business Certification is an internationally recognised sustainability certification for business acknowledging continuous progress, encouraging action and building an empowered community of like-minded individuals.

In this crucial #DecadeofAction, measuring our own carbon footprint has been a critical step in reducing our impact on the planet and society. Yesterday the whole team participated in an interactive sustainability workshop to kick off our planned activities.

Through Planet Mark we have protected 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 want to continue to have a positive impact through our business and hope that we can empower our community to take climate action. Each and every one of our team has contributed to our achievement in becoming Planet Mark certified, and will continue to play an important role in our sustainability commitment.

“We are a small business but nevertheless dedicated to doing what we can to protect people’s futures. We are a healthcare specialist communications agency and improving lives through better health information is what we do every day. This goes hand in hand with sustainable living and protecting our planet, for ourselves and for our clients. In fact, This is Avalon Group companies all work together with their clients to achieve Healthcare for Good via an ethical framework to ensure eco-friendly practices as well as diversity of thought and creativity. Nothing we recommend should be harmful to people or the planet, so it requires objectivity and integrity to ensure we are always doing the right thing to improve people’s health. We are proud to achieve PlanetMark certification and look forward to reducing our carbon footprint year-on-year.”
