Environmental certificates are increasingly required not only by administrations and public bodies, but by the greater society itself. These types of accreditations are awarded by notified bodies which guarantee that a business carries out its activities in a sustainable manner and that it has a commitment to the environment.
These requirements refer to environmental criteria at the national and international level, allowing organisations and companies to demonstrate their commitment to society and the planet.
Beyond certification, accreditation bodies offer stamps and certificates that allow their customers to recognise the efforts of companies that meet environmental standards and criteria. This often leads to greater competitiveness as it helps consumers to recognise that companies take into account such important aspects as sustainability and climate change.
