We are Globe Go Green – We organise Fair Festival Denmark
Fair Festival Denmark is a bi-annual festival and fair which focuses on sustainability, sustainable consumption and companies which sell sustainable products and services.
We do this through a range of partnerships, an active awareness campaign focused on sustainable consumption and our Fair Festival, held twice yearly in Aarhus and Copenhagen.

Certifications and criteria
We follow the Gro Harlem Brundtland report in defining sustainable development as:
“SUSTAINABILE DEVELOPMENT IS A DEVELOPMENT THAT MEETS THE NEEDS OF THE PRESENT WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE ABILITY OF FUTURE GENERATIONS TO MEET THEIR OWN NEEDS.“
To become an exhibitor at Fair Festival you 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 the compnany continuously work towards developing and optimising, so that your work becomes 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 better working conditions, help the environment and alleviate climate change.
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 believe that the UN Sustainable Development Goals are a very helpful tool, and we would like businesses to show how they work with the goals and through this how they help further the goals.
In general exhibitors must show that they take responsibility for the sustainability of their products or services, so that people, animals and soil are not exploited.
Below we have outlined some of the relevant certifications, as well as how they certify that businesses work as sustainably as possible and do as little harm to climate, environment and people as possible. We are not ourselves certified, but one of our business objectives is to create greater transparency about what these logos stand for. What do they mean? And how do you use them? We encourage you to check them out to get an idea of what is best for you and the globe we inhabit.
GLOBE GO GREEN consist of a small group of people who want 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.
Taking as a starting point our own incomplete knowledge and journey towards a more sustainable lifestyle, we wish to create a forum where we gather businesses that work specifically with sustainability. We want to give our visitors NEW INSIGHTS and a BETTER OVERVIEW of what it means to consume sustainably, enabling all of us to make conscious and qualified choices.
