What is EQM?
The Environmental Quality Mark (EQM) is an environmental award scheme that celebrates:
- a passion for place and environment
- how that passion is shared with customers
We award the EQM to any business or organisation that demonstrates how they use and enhance their place in a sustainable way in order to increase the fulfilment of their customers.
When we award the EQM, we look for a business or organisation to demonstrate:
- how it runs a good, sustainable business or activity
- how it reduces any negative impact on the environment
- how it supports communities
- how it influences customer behaviour, engagement and knowledge
