OUR VISION

Fair and Green e. V. pursues the guiding principle of holistically sustainable agriculture,
that acts with respect for the environment, is climate-neutral, socially just and economically viable for producers, retailers and consumers.

In order to achieve this goal, we have developed the FAIR’N GREEN certification system and are already applying it in viticulture, fruit growing and, in the future, other sectors.

FAIR’N GREEN is a
recognised sustainability certificate
for agriculture and nutrition.

The companies that undergo certification are audited annually on the basis of an extensive catalogue of criteria. Compliance with the relevant minimum requirements is verified by the independent inspection body GUTcert.

WHAT IS THE

FAIR'N GREEN certificate

The FAIR’N GREEN sustainability certificate is used both on the certified products and in other communication by the certified companies.

By combining the terms “fair” and “green”, observers of the certificate intuitively recognise that both environmental and social aspects play a role here.

The FAIR'N GREEN pillars of sustainability - The 3+1 model

Core standard pillars 1 to 3

The generally recognised model of sustainability is based on the three pillars of

ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY

ECOLOGICAL SUSTAINABILITY

SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY

3 pillars as the basis of the sustainability system

These three pillars also form the foundation for the sustainability certification for us.
In the FAIR’N GREEN sustainability system, these three areas of sustainability are covered by the first three pillars.

INDUSTRY-SPECIFIC SUSTAINABILITY

We also included a fourth pillar in the FAIR’N GREEN system. This sets out the industry-specific requirements for each sector.

OUR

guidelines

GET TO KNOW THE FAIR’N GREEN SUSTAINABILITY SYSTEM IN DETAIL.

We will be happy to provide you with all the contents of the system so that you can familiarise yourself with its scope. Please note that you as a company do not have to fulfil all requirements immediately.

The decisive factor is that you achieve at least 50% overall and 40% per pillar in the initial certification.

Further material for download:

* For initial certification, the minimum requirements must already be met on at least 75% of the vineyard area. After 3 years, 95% of the area must fulfil all minimum requirements.
