BENEFITS OF JOINING PROUD TO BE GREEN

Our Membership scheme is unique and provides an exceptional suite of marketing tools for your company. Additionally, for businesses at all stages of greening-up, we can help you with our FRAMEWORKS guidance scheme.

1 | PROFILE PAGE

Portfolio Example

Simple and powerful – if a green-minded consumer searches and you come up in the results, you want their business.  If you’re displaying your green credentials and your competitors aren’t, you have a major advantage over them.

The Profile Page also boosts your website’s SEO and is also used in the Green Directory.

See profile example

2 | GREEN DIRECTORY

Currently, it’s quite difficult for green-minded consumers to find companies providing green products and services, and that are operating their businesses in an environmentally-friendly way.  PROUD to be GREEN’s long-term drive is to create a comprehensive directory of green/eco businesses, products and services across the UK that consumers can tap into. Provision for this at the moment is extremely lacking. (Please note: inclusion in the Green Directory is available for Silver Memberships and above).

3 | WEBSITE STORY

Green news and stories

Prove to consumers that your company cares about the planet.  By using story-based content, situated on PROUD to be GREEN website, you’re powerfully validating your green commitment.  This also helps boost your page ranking with search engines and you can also link to this content directly from your own website as proof of your efforts. (Please note: this is for Silver memberships and above)

4 | SOCIAL MEDIA

When we promote your company via Social Media, each post simultaneously gets broadcast across our 4 main channels on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.  Additionally, we have options to include your company in our weekly YouTube programme, presented by Chris Gower.  PROUD to be GREEN has a strong multi-channel presence, it’s part of our long-term imperative.

5 | FRAMEWORKS

Want to get started in greening-up your company?  or  Want to increase your company’s greenness?  That’s exactly where FRAMEWORKS can help you.  It’s low-cost, cross-referenced to ISO standards for sustainability and has been built by an expert in this field.  Forget expensive consultancy, our easy to use, jargon-free system is here to help your company.  Just select the workplace environment to suit your business and get going!  There are 10 workplace specific models, each with 14 key components.

6 | CERTIFICATES

There’s nothing better than displaying your company’s green commitment in the office and reception areas.  It shows you’re an ethically-minded company – don’t underestimate this old-fashioned, analogue way of telling consumers you care.  It’s simple and extremely powerful.

7 | LOGO USAGE

As a member of PROUD to be GREEN you get to use the logo to promote your green conviction.  There are a multitude of uses, it’s purely down to your marketing creativity.  Please refer to the licensed usage document.

8 | SIGNAGE

As a Member you receive a PROUD to be GREEN Member window sticker.  We also have high-quality van signage available to purchase if you wish to push your green credentials across your fleet vehicles.  Call 01395 513383 to discuss your signage requirements.

9 | TREE PLANTING

Tree planting for each member

Tree planting is not an instant solution, but the sooner we plant trees in large numbers, the sooner trees gain maturity and trap carbon.  In countries where mass deforestation and loss of habitat has taken place, it’s an absolutely vital function. We have a range of tree-planting options available for business members upon induction.

We don’t charge the earth

because we want to save the earth

NOT JUST A BADGE SCHEME!

HOW WE HELP BUSINESSES GREEN-UP

The only realistic way to see improvement with time is to generate a benchmark figure for each business.

Upon induction, businesses are required to complete our GREEN-UP Q&A assessment, that are a generalised version derived from our comprehensive FRAMEWORKS greening-up system.  Based on answers given for activity carried out by the company, a score is generated.  We also maintain each company’s Q&A assessment and generate a report containing traffic-light indicators. At a glance, this illustrates to businesses where they need to pinpoint resource for worst areas of performance in order to put improvements in place, and also shows their aggregate green performance.  Please note, the benchmark figure is available internally to businesses only.

For more information, talk to Nigel Jones.
