    What does the Weaver certification include?

    There are three certification levels available on the Weaver programme depending on how much progress you’ve made in each area and what you’d like to achieve.

    How does it work?

    The Weaver sustainability certification has three available levels: Blue, Silver and Gold. All five sustainability areas are certified individually, giving you room to address different areas at your own pace.

    Blue – Comply

    Blue is the foundation of business sustainability. A business must take actions in accordance with basic requirements and compliance with the legal minimum of each sustainability area.

    Silver – Compete

    Silver is business sustainability in practice. A business must take actions to strive towards a sustainable business, compared to its competitors.

    Gold – Champion

    Gold is leading with business sustainability. A business must demonstrate leadership to excel the sustainability of the business and its wider business and community network.


    You’ll also have access to a comprehensive suite of tools and resources to support you throughout the programme, including ready-to-use templates and online learning resources via our dedicated platform, Pioneer.
