Responsible Hospitality

We can help you become a responsibly run hospitality business

No matter the size of your business you can gain authentic certified credentials for implementing system wide sustainability practices.

We provide specific certifications tailored for the hospitality industry that serve food or drink such as: restaurants, bars, pubs, cafes, event venues. 

As with all our other services we provide a personal hands-on approach with our clients, continually guiding them through the certification process. Your assigned personal manager is a phone call away. Our service packages below indicate what’s included, so once you have established you employee numbers and what level of service you need call us so we can assess which compliances will not apply and remove them. We understand that these are very difficult times, in response we can offer a monthly payment scheme to assist those who want to start their sustainability journey.

"We are very happy we found Go Green Sustainability as a consulting and accreditation partner in our quest to optimise our sustainability practises. Lucy Agace's passion and expertise in everything green has been invaluable to our journey. They were professional throughout the process and added value at every stage. We cannot recommend them highly enough to any business looking to improve their green credentials and do their bit to save the planet."
