BECOMING PSS ACCREDITED

 
What's included

Access to the ConVert calculator is FREE for POPAI members.  

If you would like to go ahead with POPAI Sustainability Standard accreditation you will benefit from: 

  • CheckBox audit portal access
  • Implementation guide 
  • Accreditation certificate, or "Working Towards" certificate

The PSS auditing process is easy-to-use and has been designed to be accessed and achieved remotely without the need for face-to-face consultancy, which is not included in the package.

Outside of the fee structure, we are pleased to offer a bespoke consultancy service through a 3rd-party.

 
PSS auditing explained

The PSS helps companies address  areas such as design outputs, manufacturing methods, energy & waste monitoring, and supply chain management.

Auditing is carried out remotely via the online Checkbox portal, with no requirement for an on-site visit.

Using our suite of eGuides to assist, companies select applicable modules and upload evidence to Checkbox. The audit is then carried out remotely by a 3rd party.

If successful, the company is then issued with their certificate of accreditation and if not, they are issued with a "Working towards PSS" certificate and can choose whether to have another audit at a small cost or wait to the next annual audit to become accredited.
