Our proprietary Conscious® range of certifications was originally coined and developed by us to recognise clients that regularly measure, manage, monitor and mitigate their environmental impacts. It can be awarded to any type of business entity, service or product, under the environmental reporting categories of Carbon, Water, Waste, and Biodiversity Management.
All audits/assessments required for the quantification of the impacts would need to have followed proper international methodologies/ standards/ guidelines, and the calculations and reports will be independently verified by us prior to the issuance of the selected certifications.
