Leave No Trace Ireland has achieved a quality mark signifying it meets the highest standards of service and trust.
Leave No Trace Ireland was awarded the coveted All-Ireland Business All-Star accreditation.
This is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria.
The accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the Kemmy Business School at the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.
Dr Hynes said the accreditation, which is now held by over 350 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards, but have nothing to measure them by.
“We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors,” she said.
“We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience.
“The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.”
The All-Ireland Business Foundation is responsible for overseeing the All-Ireland Business Summit and All-Star awards, ongoing All-Star accreditation, Thought Leader awards and promoting peer dialogue among members.
Maura Kiely, CEO of Leave No Trace Ireland said “On behalf of all the team at Leave No Trace Ireland, we are delighted to achieve Business All-Star Accreditation. The accreditation process gave our organisation the opportunity to reflect on our achievements, growth strategy and above all, the real value Leave No Trace Ireland creates for all stakeholders engaged in responsible outdoor recreation across the island of Ireland.”
“The opportunity to receive first-hand feedback from the panel of auditors, our employees, clients and suppliers through the reference check round was particularly insightful. I would like to take this opportunity to thank not only the Foundation but also our dedicated team, Board of Directors and most importantly our trainers, members and suppliers and all those that continue to support us in our mission to promote the ethos of Leave No Trace across Ireland. We look forward to continuing to meet and indeed exceed the standards set by the AIBF.”
