I am a waste management company

We can help you to report independently verified and validated performance data about your waste management achievements and increase customer confidence.


The Green Compass Scheme

The Green Compass scheme demonstrates compliance with PAS 402:2013 by providing independent verification of reported performance data. Verification is undertaken by an independent, UKAS accredited inspection body.

As a Green Compass company, you will be best placed to meet increasing demands for Industry to report validated recovery data, whilst demonstrating best practice.

Green Compass status is a tangible marketing tool for your organisation - as well as the Green Compass certificate, scheme members are provided with livery and graphic design templates for marketing purposes.

The inspection scheme will improve customer confidence, process efficiency and can help to secure new business. BuildUK members are now specifying that their contractors adopt PAS 402:2013 by January 2018.  An increasing number of Local Authorities, Waste Brokers, Government organisations, and other significant industry bodies are including the scheme in their procurement process.

The PAS is not only specific to Wales, it has now been adopted in both England and Scotland, with Ireland to follow shortly.

Does your company meet the criteria?

The Green Compass Scheme is applicable to waste management organisations that process construction, industrial, commercial and household wastes, for example, at a transfer station, treatment facility or disposal site.

It is not applicable to a waste management organisation that operates solely as a waste carrier or waste broker.
