Social Enterprise Impact

Planet A Solutions CIC is a registered Social Enterprise, so when you work with us you know that 50% of our profits are invested in three key areas:

  • Into schemes that help protect against climate change
  • Providing free consultancy services to charities, CICs and community groups
  • Re-invested back into our business to provide long term skilled employment and training for our team

When we set up in 2019, the founding Directors decided over a few pints of Cornish cider that the most effective way to mitigate the effects of climate change is by cutting off greenhouse gas emissions at source, and by not being tied to a corporate agenda.

Our aim is not to profiteer off climate change mitigation, but to create an organisation that will support other organisations in their move to decarbonise, by those who are not currently acting to do so quickly, and to consider carbon impact over profit.

As a company our policy is to provide good jobs and promote a healthy work life balance. We want to retain and commit to our team, helping the company and the people to flourish in an uncertain world.

How are we doing this in 2024?

  • We support Parish Councils, Community Energy Organisations and Charities with advice and presentations on how to tackle climate emergency
  • We set up Carbon Offsetting Partnerships
  • We have agreed to support DREAM Renewables with 10% of our annual profits to promote sustainable living in Ghana
  • We host events that are free to attend, to provide advice on renewable energy, energy efficiency and new technology, alongside key note speakers on climate science. In 2021 and 2022 we hosted two Decarbonisation Roadshows at key locations in Cornwall
