Green Element is an Environmental Management Consultancy based in London and Edinburgh. We offer services to all types of organisations from small SMEs up to large corporations.
We are committed to encouraging businesses to develop their relationship with the environment. There are many benefits in doing so, including reduced overheads and improved ‘green’ credentials – powerful for financial growth and public and stakeholder opinion.
The word ‘management’ within our company description is a vital differentiator. Although we are passionate about the environment we are driven by business objectives. We understand the challenges faced by companies of all sizes/sectors and tailor our services to fit. We work within your aims, your objectives, your culture and your timeframe.
We genuinely care about the environment and pride ourselves on driving this same level of enthusiasm within our clients’ workforce. But we understand that any environmental project must motivate people, but not impinge on their work.
Every staff member from cleaners to top management need to be engaged and we provide the impetus for inspiration, including key people in every element of decision-making implementation processes.
We think outside the box – drawing inspiration from a wide range of sources, including our charity work, where we all spend at least one day per month volunteering at a charity of our choice.
Our passionate and dedicated team of environmental analysts advise organisations on energy benchmarking and management, carbon footprint, energy procurement, environmental management and meeting statutory requirements.

Green Element Mission Statement & Values
Green Element strives to see things differently – to review life in fresh and alternative ways. We believe in helping our neighbours; reducing environmental impacts; and conducting our business ethically as well as professionally.
We genuinely care about the environment and pride ourselves on driving this same level of enthusiasm within our clients’ workforce. But we understand that any environmental project must motivate people without compromising their work. Every member of staff – from cleaners to top management – needs to be engaged, and we provide the impetus for inspiration, including key people in every element of decision-making implementation processes.
At Green Element, we practice what we preach – because life’s too short to think only of ourselves. We’re in this together. As well as implementing our own environmental policy, we’re proud to be a Certified BCorp; we’re a Living Wage Employer; and we’re committed to giving back through charity work. Please refer us as we will give £50 to a charity of your choice for every referral!
Part of our vision – one we share with the RSA and which is eloquently explained in the video below– is to enrich society through ideas and action: invigorating local community, investing in people, and empowering and inspiring them to work confidently, collaboratively and creatively to drive innovation.
