About GreenBizCheck

GreenBizCheck is a global technology-based environmental certification program for business.

Offering environmental certification for offices, retail, hotels, clubs, education centres, IT, food & beverage and recruitment. The program helps companies to quickly implement sustainable environmental practices which rapidly increase profits, attract new business, conserve energy, water, resources and minimise waste.

  • Energy conservation
  • Water consumption reduction
  • Waste reduction and recycling
  • Transportation and travel
  • Procurement and supply chain sustainability
  • General environmental issues

Points are awarded for compliance and implementation of each element of the assessment (questions have varying weightings to reflect their relative importance and impact).
