Our Green definition

We have defined 'green' by 8 key characteristics; these are driven by megatrends and support 8 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDGs are the sustainable development goals to make the world a better place by 2030. These goals have been agreed by 193 countries that are members of the United Nations (UN).

All ingredients and products found on our platform meet at least 2 of the 8 described key green characteristics. These 8 characteristics are also how we work with companies to become more sustainable.
