Achieve Green Kitchen Standard
Want to sign up to the standard? Here's how the standard works, the application process and some tools and resources to help you to achieve.
The Application Process
Once you have submitted your application form for the Green Kitchen Standard, our development manager will visit you, to support you in forming an action plan to achieve the Green Kitchen Standard and support you in completing the assessment tool. Once you have gathered evidence accompanying your assessment tool, it will be submitted for review by our certification team. Once it’s confirmed that you meet the minimum score (60%), the certification shall provide you with a report, highlighting your Green Kitchen Standard score, strengths, weaknesses and suggested actions to work on for the following year. You will be visited each year to support you and track the progress of your achievements.
Summary of the Framework: Take a look at the different topics covered by the standard in a summary and learn more about what is expected of you.
Webinar: We hold regular webinars to inform and discuss the standard. With guest speakers and an opportunity for a question and answer session these are a great resource to learn more. You can watch our latest webinar below.
Food waste monitoring resources: Waste and Resources Action Program works with businesses, individuals and communities to achieve a circular economy through helping them reduce waste, develop sustainable products and use resources in an efficient way.
