Founded in November 2013, Fair and Green e. V. is committed to sustainable viticulture. To this end, the organisation has a sustainability standard and the further development of FAIR’N GREEN is also supported by a scientific advisory board.

The fact that FAIR’N GREEN was developed with a practical focus is also demonstrated by the fact that renowned winegrowers such as Clemens Busch, Reinhard Löwenstein, Nik Weis, Theresa Breuer, Axel Neiss, Meike and Dörte Meyer-Näkel and Philipp Kuhn were involved in the founding of the organisation.

Further information about the founding and history of Fair and Green e. V. can also be found in an article in the Handelsblatt.


The board of the association is practice-oriented, but also scientifically anchored. The board of Fair and Green e. V. is elected by the members of the association at the annual general meeting.

The Advisory Board of Fair and Green e. V. represents the broad organisation and orientation of the association. It is also involved in the association’s research and transfer projects, accompanying and supporting them. In this way, its experience provides important insights into the work of the organisation. The Advisory Board can and should constantly contribute to improving the standards set; to this end, it has direct contact with the Board of Fair and Green e.V. and thus also reaches all members.

In the event of suspicion that there are violations of the FAIR’N GREEN guidelines or false information within the scope of certification, the advisory board can be consulted. It examines the facts of the case and makes a recommendation to the Executive Board.
