Organizational SPSC ambassadors make a pro-bono community of organizations. They either support or wish to support sustainability. Once you apply, the decision to grant you ambassadorship is taken by any 3 SPSC ambassadors.
For charities & social enterprises, The SPSC Ambassador membership/subscription is totally FREE.
It is also FREE to cooperatives registered in The Least Developed Countries. The list is on the link https://www.un.org/development/desa/dpad/least-developed-country-category/ldcs-at-a-glance.html
For other cooperatives, the annual ambassadorship fees range from £99 to £999. The fees depend on the size of the organization. We offer up to 5 times in FREE benefits against our annual fees, so you can see this as the investment rather than a cost.
We too feel extremely stressful to reject the organisational application, however it is painful to mention that current success ratio in the organisational category is less than 75%.
We do not wish to be fast or fake when it comes to issuing a certificate to a cooperative.
The process will take up to 1 month. In some cases, it may take even longer, if we do not find publicly verifiable information during the review process.
As we mentioned before, we provide FREE benefits, which are up to 5 times in value when compared to the annual membership/ambassadorship fees.
For example, if your business has paid £999 in membership fees, then we provide FREE benefits up to £4,999; so nearly 5 times.
