A sustainable solution

At idverde UK, we recognise the importance of the environment and the role our organisation plays in helping to protect the environment for future generations. Most of the people who choose to work for idverde UK have a natural interest in wildlife and green spaces, leading to a cultural bias towards making our communities stronger while helping improve our outdoor spaces and support wildlife conservation. With this key interest already within our people, we can see everyday examples of our colleagues working in ways to make our services and practices more sustainable.

We are ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and OHSAS ISO 45001 accredited, which supports and guides our practices and requires idverde to carry out annual Environmental Impacts and Aspects Assessments which touches on many aspects of the sustainability agenda. In a way of pushing on from our existing certified systems, we are now also fully committed to achieving B-Corps certification, which is a wholly ‘sustainability-focused’ process aimed at making all aspects of our business better with regards to Sustainability. Our current target for achieving this is early 2022 and will be delivered alongside the implementation of our ambitious Sustainability Strategy.

Our History
