Obtaining externally verified environmental certification is an opportunity for not for profit and community organisations to show that their environmental claims are credible to stakeholders such as staff, funders/donors, clients and the community.
Environmental certification can be included in:
- Grant applications
- Tender documents
- Annual reports
- Website and marketing materials
Coefficiency can support your organisation to achieve 2 different types of certification, GreenBizCheck and ISO 14001, depending on your organisation’s requirements.
1. GreenBizCheck Not For Profit Environmental Certification
The GreenBizCheck not for profit environmental certification program is a customised program for community and not for profit organisations. It has been heavily researched and comprises the latest office based environmental best practice standards from around the world.

2. ISO 14001 – Environmental Management System
ISO 14001 is a globally recognised environmental standard used by not for profit organisations that are:
- Operating internationally e.g. aid organisations
- Tendering for Commonwealth funding
- Operating in an environmentally regulated industry e.g. e-waste recycling
Coefficiency can support your organisation to use this standard to identify, control and monitor the environmental aspects and impacts of your operations.
