When applying for certification through a certification company and verifying with LUSH Association or GSTC, it’s essential to grasp the distinction between certification and accreditation.

Online Accreditation: Directly conducted by LUSH association experts, the final document will be signed by the LUSH association president and auditor.

Certification: Administered by a “third-party assessment” from an external licensed company like EcoHotelProjects. Your business will receive the Official Certificate of LUSH Association on Sustainability, signed by Mr. Hector De Castro, President at LUSH Association, and the external Audit company.
