We compete intensely within transparent international procurement processes to deliver sustainable, cost-effective and reliable goods and services. We uphold the UN Global Compact and its ten principles supporting human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption. We are acutely aware of the impact our decisions and actions have in the world. We have integrated the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals into all aspects of our work.

Planson 2022 Sustainability Report

Planson is a participant in the Race to Zero.

SME Climate HUB

We have had our emissions reduction targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative as consistent with levels required to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement.  The targets covering greenhouse gas emissions from Planson’s operations (scopes 1 and 2) are consistent with reductions required to keep warming to 1.5°C, which the latest climate science has told us is needed to prevent the most damaging effects of climate change.

Our Scope 3 GHG emissions are driven by our upstream supply chain and downstream transport of goods to final destinations.  Getting to zero for Scope 3 in our sector is a huge challenge.  Our key manufacturers have committed to net zero GHG emissions by 2050.  We track, audit and report to our stakeholders on their progress.

Circular Economy

Sustainable Practices

Planson prioritizes manufacturers who have committed to advancing a closed-loop supply chain, using ocean-bound plastics and post-consumer recycled plastic in products and packaging, and reaching 100% renewable / recyclable packaging in the near term.  We encourage and track extended product lifecycles and reparability.  We offer IT Asset Disposal, Asset Recovery Services, and certified recycling in dozens of countries. 

Labor

Planson is an Equal Opportunity Employer and squarely upholds both the meaning and letter of all labor regulations.

Anti-corruption

Planson has a zero-tolerance policy toward corruption. Our business operations are free of all corrupt practices.

Gender Equality

Planson advances gender equality and empowerment of women and girls in every aspect of our work.  We are committed to being an exemplary Woman-Owned business. We serve as a supplier to UN Women and NGOs focusing on the safety, empowerment and rights of women.
