Certification

Go Green Sustainability

Certification for any size business enterprise in any sector

Organisations that want top quality, authentic certified “green” credentials for implementing systems wide sustainability practices need look no further.

We are a small business providing hands on professional certification services in a step-by-step process. We take a holistic approach to embedding sustainable practices across your organisation working alongside your designated leader or team. This certification is an excellent choice as a principal certificate of sustainability, for any small to medium sized business, but also works well as a transition towards a Green Globe certification for businesses larger than 50 people.

Our certifications compliance standards are based on and aligned to recognised global industry benchmarks from the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs), the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) and ISO standards.

"Lucy helped us through the process of certification with great advice and information. Extremely professional and always available for questions. It was important for us to attain this certification so that our clients can see where our values lie and the importance we place on the environment and ethical business practices."

Certification Process


Step 1

A phone discussion to assess your business, outline the standard criteria and suggest the right certification package for you.

Step 2

Auditor will assess which (if any) standards are not applicable to your business and remove prior to sending the list of standards.

Step 3

Sign the contract and pay the 30% deposit and select payment options. We email you the list of compliance standards and set up a Dropbox link.

Step 4

There is 6-12 months (larger businesses 12 months) to complete the process, during which time your assigned manager is just a phone call away.

Step 5

Once we have agreed you meet the minimum number of standards the audit is booked, paid for and completed. Certification documents arrive within a week.

Certification Details


There are 100 compliance standards, including 34 mandatory ones. Non-Applicable standards are removed after the initial phone discussion and in some cases, this can reduce by half. To gain certification a 50% minimum pass rate is required. The aim is to improve each year, complying with more standards. We review the standards each year to keep in line with global sustainability benchmark changes. (e.g. Covid-19)
