Endorsements and Acclaim

The Green Accord is a symbol of green business operation.  It is a process that reduces environmental impact through clear, easy to implement actions.  It is an affordable route to sustainability and improved business for all. 

Tom Kennard of Zero2050 says:

“Companies can immediately see the tangible benefits of the Green Accord.  Unlike other sustainable procurement approaches the Green Accord offers direct assistance to companies through valuable resources and workshops.

We are often approached by companies who are at various stages of their sustainable procurement journey and one of the key advantages of the Green Accord is that it is suitable for all companies from those that have a sustainable procurement strategy already in place to those just starting to address their sustainable procurement responsibilities.”
