The Company

Green Element is a Environmental Management Consultancy that helps companies reduce their environmental impact. We specialise in helping our clients monitor and reduce their environmental impact through running their Environmental Management Systems (EMS) to the internationally recognised ISO 14001:2015 and 50001:2015 Certification standards. We have a number of online service offerings that can help businesses reduce their impact; Sustainability Solved by Will Richardson, Green Element Academy, SME Impact Assessment and our Podcast.  

We also assist with regulatory and voluntary reporting standards e.g. ESOS, CRC, CDP, and work on bespoke projects such as developing carbon footprints, sustainability and social impact policies, and assisting clients with energy and waste services procurement etc. 

We are a small and friendly company who try to practise what we preach and therefore a proud member of the BCorp community. Though we are a small team, we have some big clients and ambition to match, and some exciting projects in development.
