This is the complete version of the STOKE standard for businesses to use and assess their operations in a confidential and non-committal environment. Team Members or consultants for your business can be added to this account.
Without requiring any evidence submissions or fact-checking by a STOKE Admin or STOKE Certified Independent Evaluator, answers to the criteria as well as any performance metrics are NOT able to be publicly reported since they are unverified sustainability claims. However, organizations can share their progress internally to keep their team updated and make an informed decision on when to pursue certification.
In each criterion, there are case studies and links to external resources to help your team understand the compliance indicators and what the best practices are. STOKE’s sustainability tools and templates are not available with a free account. Neither are the discounts on sustainable products and services from within the Affiliate Program portal.
The Roadmapping feature is also free to use and guides your team towards certification based on compliance gaps in the criteria after all questions have been answered. Assign Roadmap tasks to your team or collaborate with a consultant in the chat rooms available in each criterion.
Answering all of the questions in the Self Evaluation Tool does not constitute a STOKE Benchmark, or any level of STOKE certification, or STOKE membership since there is neither evidence submittal or an on-site evaluation to verify any of the business’ sustainability claims. Therefore, no licensing of the STOKE brand is available at this stage.
