Some Green Fins members have not been able to go through their annual assessment process due to the coronavirus outbreak. An inactive status does not mean they are not operational and we suggest you get in touch with the Green Fins member directly and ask if they are open for business. The Green Fins teams will be doing all they can to reassess members in their respective countries as soon as it is possible and safe to do so.
The above score is the average score of all the Green Fins members assessed in this location within the last 18 months. Scores range from 0 (no environmental impact) to a maximum of 330. The lower the score the better. The graph shows the average scores for each Code of Conduct (COC) points with the red line representing the highest possible score.
Each COC score is weighted, meaning the most environmentally threatening activities are given a higher score. This allows you to see where the impacts are occurring For more information please go to the Assessments page.
