The Organization

GREEN BRANDS is an international, independent and autonomous brand evaluation organization with headquarters in Veitsbronn (Germany, near Nuremberg) and offices in Hamburg, Vienna (Austria), Basel (Switzerland), Prague (Czech Republic), Budapest (Hungary), Ljubljana (Slovenia), Bratislava (Slovakia) and Sofia (Bulgaria).

GREEN BRANDS awards – in international cooperation with independent institutions and companies in the environmental/climate protection and sustainability sector – ecologically sustainable brands (companies / products / service providers / food / associations) and awards the GREEN BRAND Quality Seal.

With this award and the quality seal, which is a registered EU certification mark for ecological sustainability, brands with a proven commitment to conserving the environment, climate, nature, biodiversity and natural resources are honoured.

GREEN BRANDS thus honours the brands’ commitment to climate conservation, sustainability and ecological responsibility in a unique way.
