What does it cost to join Green Street?

It’s FREE to join as a household or individual. You’ll have access to all Level 1 resources, Green Street community pages, and any special offers for members. We won’t ask you for any payment information and you can stay a free member for as long as you want.

If you represent a business, workplace or organisation, you can also join for free – just select Level 1 when you sign up. However, a small annual subscription will give you more resources and features, and allow multiple people in your organisation to access them. Join as a Level 2 or 3 member to access the higher-level features.

How sustainable are the businesses listed in the directory?

To appear in the Green Street Business Directory, an organisation must have done its Green Street Score and earned at least one Green Street Badge.

You can see an organisation’s score and badges on their profile page. The Green Street scores and badges are based on globally verified sustainability criteria, including the UN Sustainable Development Goals and UN Global Compact.

However, it’s up to the business to declare their progress honestly when calculating their score or determining which badges they have earned. You can judge how sustainable they are to some extent by looking at their score and badges. More importantly, look at what they say about their approach, products, services, materials, projects and policies. Check their website, social media, Green Street profile and posts/comments for insights on their ethics, strategies and sustainability progress.

The emphasis is on having a go at being sustainable, rather than having the lowest carbon score or the most badges. Sustainability is a journey, and by supporting businesses who are having a go, we can help them contribute to a sustainable economy and community.

What's the difference between the membership levels?

The different membership levels allow Green Street members to access different types of resources and benefits. Level 1 is free to all, while Levels 2 and 3 require a small annual subscription and are primarily designed for organisations. If you sign up for the free Level 1, you have the option to upgrade to Level 2 or 3 later.

  1. Level 1 is best for households, individuals and micro businesses such as sole traders. It gives you access to the Green Street community as well as a number of resources designed to help you learn about sustainability and take action to be more sustainable.
  2. Level 2 is ideal for small businesses. It gives access to all the Level 1 resources, plus extra resources such as sustainability planning templates, policy guides and a listing in the business directory
  3. Level 3 is perfect for small to medium enterprises and larger organisations. It includes all the benefits of Levels 1 and 2, plus additional resources for enterprises who are serious about embedding sustainability into their organisation.

If you know what sort of guidance or resources you need but aren’t sure of which level will offer that, see the Resource Finder. It summarises some key sustainability needs for organisations and lists the Green Street resources that will help.
