ACCREDITATION PROGRAMME

Connecting you with businesses doing good, and helping them do better.


Accreditation gives businesses the opportunity to share the good they're already doing and provides a framework that supports them to pursue more sustainable practices. The badges that businesses achieve through this process make it easy for you to find and connect with businesses that align with your values.

How does a business get accredited?

Let’s talk about badges

Aligned with the UN SDGs, our 29 badges reflect sustainable practices in business operations and products that respect people, our planet and animals. At a glance, they show consumers how a business is taking action on important social and environmental issues. Each badge has specific standards that must be complied with, and businesses are re-appraised every two years to ensure on-going compliance. We weren't kidding when we said we take this stuff seriously! Badges fall into two categories:

Operational

12 badges that focus on sustainable business operations (e.g. Supply Chain Visibility, Supporting Communities, Recycling, Carbon Neutral).

Product

17 badges that relate to products offered by a business that are proven to be sustainably/ethically produced (e.g. Fair Trade, Cruelty-free, Durable, Sustainable Forestry).
