Said about GRV
Pamela Ravasio Head of CSR & Sustainability, European Outdoor Group
The Transparency Tool by GreenroomVoice already implementing what the Higg Index currently still misses: A consumer-facing communication vehicle.
The tool’s results are generated through an in depth interview with each individual brand, and are then reviewed by an independent expert committee.
Of the three dimensions (A, B) and Product, the first two are evidently product-independent, and hence communicate the overall brand achievement. This then allows to compare different brands and how they perform in the sustainability/CSR space.
Aiko Bode, Chief Sustainability Officer, Fenix Group
It is very revealing when the forward-looking companies are presenting specific products at the GreenroomVoice area at ISPO, OutDoor etc. Via benchmarking they obtain new inspiration for products and corporations. And the visitor has the possibility for a more responsible decision from an ecological point of view.
Gabriel Arthur, Editor In Chief, NORR Skandinavien-Magazin
GreenroomVoice gives the press a comprehensive and still detailed insight in how the leading brands regarding sustainability are performing. Also, it is great that both smaller pioneering brands and large international brands are there.
