Green Globe Process

Once you have decided to take a certification you first become a Green Globe member directly on their website. Here the membership is paid and l am assigned as your auditor. My charges are also paid through their website once the audit is completed. A business has a year to complete the certification process. All the criteria are accessed through your account on their website, where Green Globe will remove any Non-Applicable compliances beforehand. Here you upload all required policies and other evidence documents for the auditor to consider and help direct. Once you have become a member I cannot work as a consultant for you. An auditor is required to be independent and impartial during the audit.
