The National Green Achiever Scheme

Established five years ago, the national Green Achiever Scheme has more than1, 000 members ranging from large multi-national, multi-site manufacturing and distribution companies to one-man band catering or cleaning businesses.

The scheme provides a framework of accreditations that enable companies to choose the appropriate level for them at a certain point in time:
