What is Green Star?

Green Star is a certificate of excellence for the progress of a company towards a green transformation, which includes the structured introduction of sustainability (ESG) aspects and climate action into its business operations.

The basis for issuing the certificate is the Green Star ESG rating in the area of sustainable business and the climate action rating. The ESG rating assesses the impact of governance, environmental and social factors on the company, and the company’s footprint and impact on the environment, society and climate. The Green Star ESG rating is based on international frameworks and standards for sustainability reporting and EU legislation.
