If you are, or aspire to be, a Green Business with Green Credentials, why not show your customers, suppliers, shareholders and anyone that’s interested in your business, what you’re doing for the environment.
Everyone’s talking about the Government’s environmental policies and how our behavior and neglect is leading to changes in the climate. The public is becoming increasingly vocal about what they expect from retailers and manufacturers. For example, less packaging on products, more recyclable products and packaging, and services and products that do not harm the environment.
But how many of those consumers know that most businesses are truly doing their bit by simply complying with current legislation? Well the answer is, very few and Green Achiever think that you should have some recognition for that and shout about it — tell them what your environmental policy is!
The Green Achiever Scheme has been set up to enable companies to demonstrate their credentials to suppliers, customers and any other parties interested in green business.
With a little help and guidance, Green Achiever can help you, like other well known companies, prove that you are actively caring for our environment whilst conducting your business.
How Does It Work?
There are two routes open to participants in the scheme perform a self assessment to provide the platform for further improvements and progression to Silver and Gold levels; or go from Registered to Silver with a detailed on-site audit and bespoke action plan for the next 12 months.
A health check will consider the activities you perform and inform you about the legislation that could affect you. Then they put forward ideas about ways to reduce your impact on the environment.
To start the ball rolling and let others know you are making a commitment to do something, write to your suppliers and let them know that you have signed up to become a green achiever and ask them about their Environmental Policy. To help you with this and at your request, Green Achiever supply a template letter, simply insert your company details and send out to your suppliers.
Green Achiever are all about growing big ideas to help the planet. Their motto is ‘The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn’ and this is the way they approach getting companies involved in investing in green business for the future.
