EcoCert

Environmental Support and Certification Scheme for Small Businesses in Ireland.

Available to businesses and organisations of all types who wish to;

  • Save on day-to-day operating costs
  • Improve environmental performance
  • Achieve formal recognition

Most small businesses could readily reduce their day-to-day operating costs and improve their environmental performance, but often lack the time or the expertise.

EcoCert – the innovative solution.

EcoCert is provided by Econcertive with the support of the Environmental Protection Agency,

What is so different about EcoCert?

With EcoCert there is no auditor, and no preparation. An advisor helps identify cost-saving improvements and then helps you meet the certification requirements.

The requirements themselves are very straightforward and easy to verify. They also give the organisation a framework for further improvements, year on year.

How much does it cost?

€400 + VAT. For this, we promise to identify at least €400 of annual savings – or we refund half the fee!

Organisations with more than one site or 60 employees will receive a customised quote. Sole traders and charitable organisations qualify for an automatic 50% discount (although refunds don’t apply!).

What are the Certification requirements?

The requirements for achieving EcoCert certification are the same core requirements as for any recognised environmental certification scheme. You must have;

  • An environmental policy
  • An improvement plan
  • Performance monitoring (e.g. utilities usage).
  • A commitment to pollution prevention.

We give help with all of these as part of the service. Full details of the certification requirements can be found on on the reverse of the application form.

Can I upgrade to other certifications?

Yes. EcoCert uses the same basic principles as all recognised certification schemes for environmental management. So, EcoCert holders are well placed to upgrade their systems to suit any of these schemes.

How can you give a certificate for work you have been involved with?

Conventional certification schemes do require an independent auditor, uninvolved with the preparation – one reason these schemes are so expensive.

With EcoCert the requirements are simplified and transparent, and so don’t require an independent auditor. EcoCert is partnered by the Environmental Protection Agency and various local councils, who oversee all certifications under the EcoCert scheme.

What do I need to be ready for the advisor’s visit?

The advisor’s visit is quite informal, takes around half a day, and is geared to finding cost savings for you. It should be hosted by someone who is familiar with the running of the organisation, including the arrangements for energy, waste and water.

You should have to hand information on your energy waste and water, ideally covering the previous year. Copies of bills are sufficient.

Other information on your environmental performance or issues of concern to you would also be helpful.

How do I apply?

Just fill out the application form and send it to Econcertive. We will contact you and take it from there.
