Certification Standards


The Green Tick ® Certification Standards are based on a life-cycle assessment of an organisation, product, service, programme or project from "cradle-to-grave", or from "cradle-to-cradle", depending on the scope of certification.


There are eight safety standards and 12 sustainability standards in the parent "SUSTAINABLE" ecolabel, with two or three more specific standards for carbon or service variants. 


Generally, at least 12 months' evidence of compliance with the standards is required with an application, and scope boundaries are from "Inwards Goods" to "Outwards Goods".
