Elite Green Compliance International® (EGCI) offers independent services worldwide, to all public or private industries. These services include consulting, training, verification, audit, and certification. Our highly experienced and qualified subject-matter experts help clients meet the growing challenges of quality, safety, social responsibility, and environmental management services.
At EGCI, we go beyond simple compliance with regulations and standards, reducing risk and improving processes and systems to optimize productivity by implementing a certification program that closely follows the guidelines set by Certified Green Partners®.
This certification program will help any organization reach the requirements necessary to become a certified eco-friendly business.
Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Florida, Elite Green Compliance International began offering green practices to organizations associated with the printing trade.
As the scope of our services grew in size, we extended our reach to all industries (with a focus on, but not limited to, development and construction) to guarantee that participating organizations complied with the global guidelines through an integrated environmental certification program.
The implementation of this program solidified our dedication to achieving our, and our clients’, objectives by providing intercontinental ecological solutions that facilitate optimization.
THE CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
The certification program is based on sustainable development and cost-effectiveness. It provides direction for the implementation and structure of a workable program. The program is applicable across all industries and sectors, large or small, regardless of products or services offered. Its guidelines are sufficiently flexible and include performance indicators that can be applied according to the certification level, the geographic area, and local factors.
The program can be used by internal and external parts of the organization, including certification bodies, to assess the ability of the organization to comply with customer requirements and statutes.
The foundation of the certification program consists of six principles. Together, they can enable your operation to improve its environmental impact while complying with global demands:
Leadership skills bring about a unity of purpose and direction on the part of an organization’s team and its employees. Strong leadership fosters an atmosphere within the organization that motivates employees to give their best effort for the greater good.
Involvement of Team Members
A process is a set of activities that follow each other in logical order, leading to a specific end to reach optimum results.
System Approach to Management
Better results are achieved when individuals at the management level direct the organization’s business as interrelated processes.
No matter an organization’s size, area of focus, location, or status as a for-profit or non-profit, it should always strive for steady improvement if it wants to see continued success.
Objective Approach to Decision-Making
Decisions within an organization should be made based on facts in order to make the most effective and sound decisions.
We evaluate and determine operations, processes, products, services, and market access of each business we serve.
EGCI has a network of trainers who work regularly with administration to create plans of action. Each of their unique perspectives and experiences gives businesses an understanding of management systems.
Verification and Audit
Our experts specialize in all industries. They inspect, verify, and audit the workflow to ensure our clients have the necessary documentation to comply with regulatory environmental requirements.
We offer three certification levels – Basic, Green, and Green Plus. Regardless of the desired certification level chosen by a participating entity, we will assess current sustainable practices and create a customized plan that will help any organization reach the requirements. All documented sustainable efforts are taken into consideration and converted into points using a scale that consists of 8 tiers. Each of these tiers represents a fixed number of points. The certification level of the company is based on the number of sustainability points accumulated, among other guidelines that must be met.
Along with CGP, we provide information to improve productivity and increase profitability. Seminars include a test preparation program to gain the “Certified Environmental Associate” or “Certified Environmental Auditor” qualification from CERTIFIED GREEN PARTNERS®. Through our experience, tutors, interactive structured classes, and exams, we can meet every need for organizational training related to sustainability.
