Level of sign-up

We encourage all organisations to sign up to PLEDGER level if they can. The Code is meant to be challenging so many organisations will first sign up at PLEDGER level and then work through to SIGNATORY and CHAMPION levels if/when possible. Others whose net zero carbon strategy is already quite mature will be able to sign up at SIGNATORY or CHAMPION levels right away. 


PLEDGER
This is the minimum level of compliance. All organisations must sign up tocommitments 1.1 and 1.2 to be in compliance at a PLEDGER level.


SIGNATORY
To achieve a SIGNATORY level of compliance, organisations must sign up to 1.1 and 1.2 and all Core Commitments relevant to their organisation (Client 2.1, 2.2, 2.3) (Supply Chain 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4).


CHAMPION
To achieve a CHAMPION level of compliance, organisations must sign up to 1.1, 1.2,Core Commitments relevant to their organisation (Client 2.1, 2.2, 2.3) (Supply Chain 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4) and the Further Commitments relevant to their organisation (Client 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 2.8, 2.9, 2.10) (Supply Chain 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8).


 

Scale


Organisations are encouraged to sign up at a global or national scale, but it is possible for organisations to sign up at a regional or local scale. It is also possible for large projects to sign up such as a joint venture with several partners. The scale of sign-up must be clearly stated.

 

Cost 


There is no cost to sign-up to the Code.
