audit and certification.

ATLANTA – MAY 2024: Global claims services provider McLarens has achieved the Planet Mark
Business Certification, recognising the business’ efforts in carbon footprint measurement and
reduction, and underlining its commitment to sustainability.

The Planet Mark Business Certification is an internationally recognised sustainability certification for
all organisations acknowledging continuous progress, encouraging action, and building an empowered
community of like-minded individuals. As one of 10 global partners of the UN Race to Zero, Planet
Mark’s process and mark is recognised by government and business standards, driving assurance in
sustainable progress.

McLarens engaged Planet Mark to externally validate its carbon impact as a company, measuring and
benchmarking the global business’ impact, engaging all staff, and credibly communicating its progress.
McLarens is now working with Planet Mark towards an annual carbon reduction target of 5%.
McLarens is also contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through its annual
Certification. By completing Planet Mark Business Certification, organisations can contribute to 9 of
the UN SDGs annually.

McLarens’ scope 1, 2 and core elements of scope 3 carbon emissions (those emissions that the
business is directly responsible for or are easily under organisational control) have been measured,
reported, and verified by Planet Mark. McLarens is continuing to work with Planet Mark to calculate
its full Scope 3 emissions (indirect emissions, for example those within its supply chain).

With over 2000 staff operating in 45 countries across the globe, McLarens’ sustainability strategy is
focussed on its reducing carbon and environmental footprint as a business, and working with clients
to ensure insurance claims are handled in a sustainable manner. McLarens’ ESG Steering Committee
