After the certification process has been completed with a self-evaluation on the part of the company, an audit by qualified GreenSign Institute employees or external auditing partners takes place to ensure the highest possible quality assurance. The auditor’s visit to your company is followed by an audit report with the evaluation and confirmation of the GreenSign level as well as recommendations for the further development of the company’s sustainability activities.

After her business studies and many years of professional experience in the financial services sector, Ina Büschemann dedicated herself entirely to the topics of quality management and sustainability as an independent entrepreneur (production/trade in coffee).
