SME Standards

For each bespoke SME Standard, we offer the chance to reach two levels of achievement:


If you want to show your intent to be more sustainable but are not ready for a fully-fledged management system, then this is for you.

Our 'Committed' option is a quick and simple way to show customers and employees that your organisation has good practice in place and is committed to improving.


If you want to meet SME Standards with a management system that has been certified against the Standard requirements, then this is for your business.

Our SME Standards are uniquely designed to be relevant to your business and simple to implement.

The Standards are underpinned by the same management system principles as ISO and so can be a first step towards gaining ISO certification in the future.



This simple but flexible framework ensures your organisation can easily target and implement the actions that best suits its needs and opportunities.

All Standards work to the principle of repeat and improve. In other words, continue good practice already underway, and make progress towards new improvements.



Full Standard requirements can be downloaded from your member page when you join for FREE.
