“In my function as director of marketing, I come across many offers to distinguish oneself on the market through new ‘green’ labels. As I am also the environmental management officer of our EMAS-certified company, I verify these offers not only with regard to their external effect but especially with regard to their consistency of content. The GREEN BRANDS questionnaire has convinced me with its depth of content and also with regard to the spectrum of covered areas. This is no green-washing label but a certification based on science. This impression has been confirmed by the excellent evaluation documentation: The strengths and weaknesses of one’s own company become very transparent in the individual areas through percentages and graphical analysis. For me, it’s a good tool to work specifically on weak points. In the next GREEN BRANDS certification, it is going to be to interesting to see our development in the various categories. I’m sure we will participate again.”

“… additionally, we have obtained many useful suggestions from the validation questionnaire and are now beginning to integrate them into our ongoing development. Solely for that, a big compliment and thank you.”

“The re-validation procedure was very exciting for us. It creates a new awareness for projects which we have planned but not put into action. You get an external impulse for internal processes and you are happy about the confirmation you get regarding the path you have been taking. Especially, if we you are able to improve significantly like we did this time. It shows mercilessly: There’s always work to do and you cannot stand still.”

“It is a big and important task to which GREEN BRANDS is committed: To promote green thoughts and thus green activities. That’s what GREEN BRANDS campaigns for.

We are thrilled about the award of the GREEN BRANDS Germany 2013. This was preceded by a validation process through a very thorough jury. This motivates us and gives us strength to continue our ecological commitment through our activities and our products so that the human species, nature, and resources are protected and that a world worth living will be preserved for our children.

We hope that Green Brands will continue its commitment to its ideas and targets and that also medium-sized companies are promoted with regard to their sustainable activities.”
