fischer receives recognition for sustainable actions 27 February 2024

The fischerwerke brand has recently received the renowned GREEN BRANDS seal of quality at a ceremony in Nuremberg. It is an important and valuable recognition for the company’s commitment to sustainability.

The GREEN BRANDS quality seal is a registered EU guarantee mark for ecological sustainability with an independent, transparent and neutral testing process. This means it has protection throughout the European Union. This seal demonstrates to consumers fischer’s dedication towards being ecologically sustainable. 

In January, Christian Ziegler, head of sustainability, environment and energy at the fischer group, accepted the trophy at a festive awards ceremony in Nuremberg's town hall. “We are proud of the award. GREEN BRANDS critically examines our sustainability activities. Because it is such a reliable and meaningful award, we are even more pleased with our excellent performance. Thanks to the company comparison, we can also constantly develop further,” Christian states.

To receive the award, fischer had to go through a unique three-stage process – a process where only companies, products and services that were nominated could take part. Experts then determined the status on a GREEN BRANDS index in an independent validation process. The criteria for this were developed, among other things, with a scientific sustainability institute.

If the validation result was positive, national jury members made the final decision. Companies who actively demonstrated ecological sustainability were recognised as a GREEN BRANDS and received the seal of quality for two years. This marks the second GREEN BRANDS award for fischer, the first which was received in 2020 for its GreenLine product line.
