How Green Mark works

Green Mark is a sustainability accreditation scheme which empowers teams and organisations to make cultural, environmental and sustainable change. Making your mark has never been easier.

Fully Supported Onboarding

When you subscribe to Green Mark, you’ll be assigned a green mark team member who’s job it is to hold your hand through the process.

Whether your an individual site or have multiple locations, we’ll set up your journey to suit you.

Our team then will walk you through what’s required for each step, and will guide you on how to use the online portal.

Establishing Strong Foundations For Change

The next step on your journey is information gathering.

Through the portal you will complete a few surveys, so we can assess your current situation. This enables us to identify the actions you’ll need to achieve certification.

Our surveys are user friendly, and all come with helpful guides, to make it as straightforward as possible.

If you need help at any time, our team are on hand to provide support.

Identifying Targets & Inspiring Action

Having assessed your current situation we will create the actions needed to get you certified.

They’ll be listed for you in the online portal, along with clear guidance on how to achieve them.

You can then complete these actions at a pace that suits you. The time needed to complete these action will depend on what’s required and how much time you can allocate each week.

Many of our customers find this stage in the process a chance to inspire the whole business around a common purpose!

Achieving Green Mark Accreditation

Once you have completed your submission and all actions have been checked and verified by our team, we’ll confirm your certification!

You’ll be sent our digital certificate and marketing materials for you to celebrate and share your achievement.

We will also publish your achievement on the Green Mark website and social channels.
