Due to studies, the #1 issue on the minds of people around the world is the environment (ie, we are using our resources faster than Mother Earth can replenish and we are accelerating our carbon-emissions-driven global warming). The world we are passing to our children will be far hotter and angrier than the world we were given. This is a bigger concern to the people of the planet than war, economy, politics, et cetera.
Turning this sentiment to the market place, consumers are more interested in a company’s ability to prove its sustainability commitment than they are in its brand names. 7 out of 10 of them will change brands if they find a certified sustainable company that offers a similar product. They will even spend more for a certified sustainable product.
Driven by the above demand, certified sustainable companies are growing up to 20x faster than their non-certified peers – the market is rewarding companies that are able to prove they are sustainable (via certification/validation).
The Edenark Group ISO 14001 environmental sustainability certification program is the premier program of its kind in the world – You get to help the planet and differentiate and grow faster than your peers.
We have a 100% client renewal rate – every client we have ever certified has renewed, every year.
We get most of our new clients from referrals from existing clients.
However, we also get a good number of clients from referral partners who like what we do and introduce us to organizations they feel would benefit from our services.
This defines what we believe a sustainability program should contain.
This master class explains why a company would want to do this.
We are looking for organizations that 1) care about the environment; 2) want to be part of the solution; and 3) want to be an example that other organizations can follow.
If you agree with our mission and our definition of what a sustainability program should be; and if you know some organizations that meet the above requirements; you might want to consider becoming a referral partner.
Send us a note and we can discuss.
