Making Business Greener

Do you want your business to become more sustainable in 2024? the “Making Business Greener” scheme can help. It is a new initiative launched by Wandsworth Council in partnership with Green Mark. It is free for businesses to take part in.

The Green Mark team will complete an on-site audit, assessing the sustainability of the location and assisting the business in completing an online questionnaire. Businesses are able to assess and enhance their environmental footprint, reduce utility bills, increase engagement, and establish a structured framework for sustainable growth. The Green Mark expert team will guide businesses in laying the groundwork for establishing sustainable practices across operations and supply chains. Businesses will receive an internationally recognised environmental accreditation which signifies a commitment to long-term environmental sustainability.

Green Mark are looking to work with businesses of all sizes, providing them with the tools and knowledge. It is estimated to take a business between 8 and 12 hours over a 6 week period fully supported by the Green Mark team. The scheme will close for applications at the end of March, or earlier if demand exceeds the available funding so sign up here to make your Mark!

Green Mark enables businesses from SMEs to large portfolios to review their operations in detail and embed the processes required to drive continuous improvement, reducing the impact they have on the environment. Green Mark accreditation has become a cornerstone of business operations across the UK, as they move towards being environmentally sustainable for the long-term. With their forward-thinking approach, they use their expertise to help communities create the foundations for a more sustainable future by implementing sustainable practices across their operations and supply chains. They believe every business can make a real difference, and they provide the tools and know-how to make that happen.
