Investors in the Environment (iiE) is a national environmental accreditation scheme. It is designed to help businesses save money, reduce their impact on the environment, and get promoted for their green credentials.

The scheme was launched 5 years ago and now has over 250 members, and a network of over 3,000 businesses in over 13 counties, as well as franchises of the scheme.

The iiE scheme is unique because businesses must achieve a minimum 2% improvement in resource efficiency over an agreed baseline figure to secure green accreditation. Other essential criteria include having a recycling system in place, adopting a travel plan, calculating carbon footprint and setting targets for carbon reduction.

We provide tailored support and expert advice to help businesses reduce their impact on the environment. The supporting membership around this accreditation scheme gives businesses the help, promotion and networking they need to make their business greener and to receive recognition for their eco initiatives. Commitment is demonstrated with a recognised stamp of accreditation.
