The Rata Certification programme was developed for organisations wanting third party certification which is neutral and independent to remove the doubt factor and provide credibility to their sustainability claims.

Always look at business sustainability certification as an investment not a cost – waste is a cost. Changing the way you do business is an investment. Investing in sustainability practices provides opportunities to improve performance across all areas within the organisation.


THE PURPOSE: The Rata Sustainable Certification Programme is a single-level programme with 6 key requirements – each critical to an organisation in order to achieve sustainable business certification.

The programme is real, realistic and relevant which provides a clear path to sustainable business certification that does not require a university degree to achieve.

The Value of Certification is:

  • Third-party certification is neutral and independent.

  • Removes the doubt factor.

  • Promotes the confidence factor.

  • Promotes the credibility of a company to prospective clients.

  • Protects consumers from myths, misconceptions and misleading information.
