We do accept most businesses which have been granted appropriate status with various accrediting bodies for environmentally preferable products as well as businesses accredited with specific certification bodies.

Our Team checks companies’ details and credentials. We look at each case individually and make a judgment according to our own standards, avoiding listing companies which use “green wash” rather than moving genuinely towards environmental sustainability. We evaluate every business that lists on our Green Directory to give our visitors peace of mind. We only list products and services that we would proudly use ourselves.

 We reserve the right to:
– Refuse submission for any violation of our guidelines or other justified reasons.
– Alter title, descriptions and keywords.
– Move your listing to most relevant categories.

We do not guarantee:
