Green Business Award Scheme

The Groundwork Green Business Awards Scheme is a continuous improvement programme structured to help businesses reach achievable environmental targets

Built within a framework of awards in Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum levels, our award scheme helps businesses across the Greater Manchester area introduce and maintain systems of environmental good practice within the workplace. 

The criteria requirements and support from Groundwork enables companies to implement a holistic system of environmental and sustainable measures which ensures a systematic benchmarking, identification of further green efficiency opportunities and the subsequent quantification of results when improvements are put into place. 


- Ensuring a foundation and grounding of environmental good practice is present and carried out on a regular basis.                                                                          

Silver –
 Using the foundation at Bronze to monitor environmental patterns, begin identifying and implementing feasible improvements.

Gold –
 Introducing more advanced environmental practices, initiatives and policies within the company. 

Platinum –
 Fulfilling the highest level of this environmental framework demonstrates your leadership in sustainable practice and inspiration to other companies.

Working with Groundwork to achieve Platinum in the Green Business Awards has embedded environmental sustainability into our choices and actions here at HOME. This partnership ensures we are working together to help to secure a creative and conscious green future for all.
