Shields MarketPlace is leading the green revolution.

The Green Economy Mark recognizes London-listed companies that derive more than 50% of their revenues from products and services that are contributing the environmental objectives such as climate change mitigation and adaptation, waste and pollution reduction, and the circular economy.

Although not currently listed; Shields MarketPlace meets this standard.

Our Environmental policy deals with both the positive effects we have on the environment and the minimization of negative impacts. Our largest potential Environmental impact is the management of surplus and redundant equipment from the telecoms sector –receiving thousands of tonnes of this equipment annually -we, therefore, deal with that separately from the operation of our facilities, driven by our MarketPlace solution.
