The Sustainable Wedding Alliance is here to help you build a business that you’re proud of, one that has sustainability at its heart and that balances people, profit and planet.
Having an accreditation from the Sustainable Wedding Alliance tells couples that sustainability is at the core of your business.
After an in depth assessment on your business’s sustainability processes and procedures, we send you a personalised action plan for you to work through. Once completed, you’ll receive the Sustainable Wedding Alliance Accreditation.
