Welcome to the Green Accord

Green Accord is a proven environmental accreditation that evidences your level of commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility. Utilising a Self Assessment that is clear, with easy to implement actions, the Green Accord provides an affordable route to achieving a sustainable accreditation, reducing carbon, and deriving business benefit.

Clients can use the Green Accord to ensure their supply chain meets the environmental standards expected in today’s eco-conscious marketplace. The Green Accord demonstrates best practice and promotes the reduction of environmental impact. Being inclusive, the Green Accord is suitable for all types of organisation and supply chain.

SME’s can achieve recognition for their environmental savings, no matter how small their company, without incurring the expense of implementing a full Environmental Management System (EMS)

Larger Businesses can add to their EMS accreditation by demonstrating real world application of the techniques learnt in the process and furthering environmental savings.



The Green Accord was developed in partnership with environmental experts Zero2050 and Envirowise and has received endorsement from the Audit Commission together with the acclaim of many national awards.

Client organisations that have applied the Green Accord to their supply chain include the Met Office, TATA Consultancy Services, Sir Robert McAlpine, Ian Williams Ltd and Exeter University.
