Club Green membership, costing just £300 per year, includes 4 quarterly legislation updates and access to the Club Green Legal Registers and Guide to Environmental Legislation.  You can download this information and use it as one part of your organisation’s legal and compliance register. 

The latest versions of the ISO management standards place significant emphasis on organisations understanding and considering their compliance obligations and Club Green represent a very costs effective way of keeping abreast of prevailing legislation and updates to environmental and REACH legislation.
