GEO Certified® Re-certification Criteria

The overall aim of the programmes and ecolabel are to support and motivate clubs to integrate sustainability into their day-to-day and long-term considerations, often starting with basics, and then fostering continual improvement.  It’s important then to gradually increase the expectation around the performance of GEO Certified® clubs over time.
