Biosphere Certification
for Chains and Groups

Manage from a single platform
the sustainability of all your companies

What is Biosphere Certification for chains and groups?

With the design of our online platform, your hotel chain or business group’s corporate entity will have control and visualisation of all the entities and business units of the group that manage their sustainability plans with Biosphere Sustainable. 

With this special functionality for groups and chains of 6 or more entities subscribed to Biosphere, the corporate entity can assign a user as corporate manager, with access to the sustainability plans of each of the companies in the group, visualising their progress and evidence, for global management and monitoring in real-time, from a single platform. Thus, the director of each entity or another designated personnel will have access to manage the specific sustainability plan of their company. Both the corporate chain and the individual entity will be able to take advantage of the benchmarking benefits that this platform can offer them, such as having a database with all the sustainable information of each unit of the group for the comparison, measurement and monitoring of the most relevant KPIs in terms of sustainability, such as energy consumption and savings, water, or carbon footprint calculation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make a corporate plan that applies to all the companies in my group or chain?

Yes, when you request your personalised proposal as a corporate entity, depending on the particularities of your group or chain, you can receive a special service that will allow you to first create a demo corporate entity, to work on an initial plan that applies to all the companies in your group or chain. Although a corporate demo profile can be created in the first instance, upon request to the Biosphere team, this profile will never be certified by the Biosphere system.

The creation of this corporate sustainability action plan, common to all the hotels of the chain or companies of the group, allows you to upload the evidence and information that would apply equally to all the entities of the group. Once all the evidence and corporate protocols have been provided, with the support of the Biosphere team of professionals, they are migrated to the individual plan of each entity, so that they all start from the same corporate plan with the information of the protocols and actions that apply to them as a group. Subsequently, each entity must provide any additional evidence that may be applicable and necessary to demonstrate that these corporate policies or protocols are adopted in their facilities and work model.

Can I obtain a certification as a chain or group?

There is no diploma or certificate as a business chain or group. Each entity that forms part of it will have its own individual diploma and certification, and communication and promotion actions will be carried out in which the commitment of the chain and group as a whole will be mentioned, once all its business units have been certified.

Biosphere works in such a way that each business unit carries out its own personalised plan for management and recognition of corporate sustainability (being able to use common evidence from all the business units, such as corporate protocols adopted by all the units). But in any case, each entity must subscribe individually and pass its own annual audit process 100% online, with each of the entities or business units comprising the group or chain obtaining certification, and not as a single entity subscribed as a corporate entity.

Can I subscribe an entity as the corporate of my group or chain?

No. In the case of the subscription of an entity as a corporate profile to be certified as a group or chain as a whole, this profile will be deleted from the Biosphere system. At the time of the first audit, the external auditor will notify the irregularity and the profile will be inactivated and all services will be cancelled. You can find more information in the Terms and Conditions of the service on our website.
