Eco+ - Business Certification

Businesses that take a smart, forward thinking approach to marketing use a combined strategy of focusing on primary benefits of the product, i.e. how the product can benefit the customer personally in conjunction with an environmental declaration, but until recently there was no consistent recognisable and trusted customer logo which is why the Ecocert Certification was developed.

 

The Ecocert Certification provides businesses with an instantly recognisable international logo that customers can identify with.  The unique and distinguishable logo demonstrates that the business has a culture of environmental protection built into their operating policies and procedures.  A business achieves Certification via a self-assessment quality assurance program that is easy to complete and comprehensively covers all of the important areas.  Through self-assessment your business can benchmark its current position and implement a change programme for saving money along with environmental improvement. As you implement change you can resubmit a new self-assessment in order to upgrade your certification standard - you can do this free of charge as often as you wish.  

The Ecocert Certification in conjunction with the Ecocert Awards Programme along with our various business services provides businesses with the opportunity to serve more customers, improve staff retention, grow their business and access a range of business services at special membership rates.
