FAIR’N GREEN is….

…a sustainability certification

FAIR’N GREEN is a procedure to quantify sustainability goals of your organization. Independent investigation bodies assure the authenticity of certifications as well as scientific requirements.

 FAIR’N GREEN is a sustainability standard regarding itself as a holistic certification system. It consists of certain ecological criteria, economic and societal criteria.

Businesses operating under the requirements of the European trademark for organic goods already fulfill an important part of the certification process.

However, those companies outside the european trademark for organic agriculture may also qualify for participation in FAIR’N GREEN if they excel in other areas such as environmental protection or resource conservation. They may consist of the resource-friendliness of the employed means of production, the maintenance of regional cultural heritage or the treatment of employees and stakeholders.
