Our Biosphere Certification Mark is awarded to businesses demonstrating their commitment to operating sustainably - looking after the environment, supporting the local community and working with and using the services and goods of local businesses. And of course championing what's special within the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere.
A sustainable business is one where profitability, concern for the environment and social commitment are in harmony and it's more important than ever to operate in this way. Also consumers are becoming much more discerning about selecting products and services that can demonstrate positive sustainability credentials.
Next application deadline is 30th November 2020
