Feeling lost in the maze of sustainability labels? Check out the label-guide

Lost in the maze of sustainability labels? The CIR Guide offers a critical overview of the most common food and textile logos, their strengths and limitations.

More and more people are interested in using sustainability as a guidance in their consumer behaviour: Products should be produced in . This trend is also not unknown to corporations, and especially large companies advertise their ‘sustainable’ production processes.
By now, there is a vast quantity of certification schemes, logos and product characteristics, such as ‘biological’, ‘eco’, or ‘fair’ that compete for the consumers’ attention. But to what extent are these statements credible and how can we identify thoe products, that are truly environmentally and socially sustainable?
Our partner CIR Romero Initiative offers a reviewed version of the guide through the label maze, including the most common labels in the food and textile sector, now also including agroecological principles. That way, consumers are provided with a tool to not get lost in the continuously growing landscape of sustainability labels.
