Building Trust and Transparency

GreenroomVoice is an independent third party organization for communication on sustainability practice. Our goal is to foster clear, meaningful and trustworthy communication about CSR brand activities and their products.

In order to create a level playing field wie believe that communication on sustainability and social responsibility needs to be fact based, fair to the consumer, transparent and not just another label but an explanation. This is what we do by creating sustainability profiles, showcases and educational material.

We are a team of experts with backgrounds in sustainability, science, responsible management, textile engineering, communication and journalism. We draw the most inspiration from the outdoor community, and that is where we are the most active.

Let’s make sustainability easy. More

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Aiko Bode, Chief Sustainability Officer, Fenix Group
  • 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.
