Certifications and criteria
We define sustainability as the Gro Harlem Brundtland report did in 1986:
“SUSTAINABILE DEVELOPMENT IS A DEVELOPMENT THAT
MEETS THE NEEDS OF THE PRESENT WITHOUT
COMPROMISING THE ABILITY OF FUTURE GENERATIONS
TO MEET THEIR OWN NEEDS.“
Our exhibitors must have a clear goal of producing and providing services as sustainably as possible. It is important that this is part of the business’ DNA and that they continuously work towards developing and optimising, so that they become as sustainable as possible as quickly possible.
We appreciate certifications and on this site we will regularly inform and educate about the certifications that exist and how they help to create a better environment, work conditions and climate.
Certifications are not an absolute must to become an exhibitor. Certifications are expensive and for small businesses it can be impossible to find financial leeway to acquire them. However, if the business can account for their supply chain and how the business work with sustainability, they can qualify as exhibitor.
We appreciate the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and would like for the businesses to show how they work with the goals. And thereby, how they help further the goals.
In general exhibitors must show responsibility in regards to what they produce or provide, so that people, animals and soil is not exploited.
Below you can read more about how the different certifications secure, that businesses produce as sustainably as possible, so as to harm climate, environment and the people that consume the products as little as possible. We are not our selves certified, but one of our goals is so clear the fog that surround these logos. What do they mean? And how do you use them? Therefore, we encourage you to visit the websites of each of the organisations below, so that you can get informed on what is best for you and the globe we inhabit.
Sales of Fair Shares open 15/11-2019

GLOBE GO GREEN consist of a small group of people that wants to DO MORE BETTER.
We are consumers like everybody else and have no grounds to preach or “point fingers”.
We are driven by the belief that EVERYBODY CAN DO A LITTLE and that together we CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Grounded in our selves, our incomplete knowledge and incomplete picture of sustainable consumption, we wish to create a forum where we gather businesses that determinately work with sustainability. We want to create INSIGHT AND OVERVIEW, so that all of us can make conscious and qualified choices.
