The Society for Applied Business Ethics (GfaW)
The Society for Applied Business Ethics, founded in 2012, focuses on the challenging combination of ethics and business. The standard giver is our partner in the areas of product certification and certified sustainability in companies. Its flagship is the world’s most demanding sustainability certification CSE (Certified-Sustainable-Economics), a standard for sustainable business. The CSE standard provides a clear benchmark for operations in all industries and serves as a comprehensive sustainability credential for customers and business partners.
In addition, GfaW offers two ecological product certifications: NCS (Natural Cosmetics Standard) for certified natural cosmetics with four labeling options: NCS, NCS-vegan, NCS-Organic-Quality and NCS-vegan-Organic-Quality. And NCPS (Nature Care Product Standard) for products of daily use, also possible in vegan labeling.
