Envirostep is designed to help small businesses to understand, improve & communicate their environmental performance. It can also be used by larger organisations to assess the performance of their branches, suppliers or members. Here’s how it works.

Free Self-Assessment

  • Complete the questionnaire (it takes around 30 minutes & your answers are automatically saved)
  • Get an instant report with your score, profile, comparison to other users & recommendations
  • As you make improvements, update the questionnaire to improve your Envirostep score

Cost-Effective Certification

Envirostep is an entry-level tool which provides automated guidance. If you want a more detailed assessment or specific technical input, consider using other tools or contact a specialist.

An Envirostep self-assessment score may not be used for promotional purposes unless it has been checked by an approved auditor & validated by a current certificate of registration.
