Receive marketing material

Achieving Green Mark provides evidence of a company’s commitment to environmental sustainability. Green Mark brings credibility to your environmental claims, as the process provides an external, independent assessment of your environmental performance.

Many smaller organisations do not have the resources to achieve an international environmental accreditation such as ISO 14001 and EMAS.

Green Mark provides an affordable option to organisations wishing to demonstrate their commitment to environmental sustainability.

It is aligned with international certifications and can provide a road map towards these qualifications, saving expensive consultancy time required to achieve such accreditation.

Engaged staff are more productive. Boosting staff engagement by increasing their awareness of environmental issues may seem like a step into the unknown, however tapping into their enthusiasm is a key way to align your business culture with your efficiency goals.
