The jury – high-level competence for a final decision that is not susceptible to any influence!
In the globally unique, three-stage awarding process for ecologically sustainable brands, the final decision lies with the jury members. They voluntarily check all submitted validation documents – including the respective evaluations – and make an independent decision.
The jury is composed of high-ranking representatives from business, science, media, agencies, and environmental associations. We are pleased to introduce here the jury members of the current process in Slovakia:
CSR Company Slovakia
Sustainability is no longer just a fad, but an indispensable part of the strategy of brands that care about the environment and the future. That’s why it’s important that brands and their sustainable activities are seen and rewarded. The GREEN BRANDS award is ideal for this, giving sustainable brands a platform and highlighting their responsible and systematic efforts in this area.
Brand PR Digital Slovakia
„For me, living in reverence is the absolutely key. To respect other people, animals and, of course, nature. To respect life because life is nature at its very core. Since I am also a mom, I teach this to my son. Overall, what I love most about my job is passing on the ideas to the next generation..“
Young Reporters for the Environment/ Centre for Environmental Activities
Humanity is currently facing a multitude of environmental challenges and it is high time we took action – from legislative and financial instruments to changing consumer behaviour. The first step may be to save a little, to find local producers and, where we cannot buy this way, to prefer products from trusted eco-producers or with a trusted eco-label.
Green Building Council Slovakia
Allow me me to make a personal wish: let sustainability become a natural part of the normal approach to life, and not only in construction, then we can live in a healthy long-term sustainable environment in green buildings and beyond.
When I founded Green Talk in 2017, I had a vision of an agency that would deliver marketing services to fair-minded businesses that were aware of the importance of environmental and social sustainability. Today, I’m pleased to say that this goal, however idealistic it may have initially seemed, is largely being fulfilled. Thanks to clients in the field of geothermal energy or ecological waste management, we are collectively contributing to the public placing greater emphasis on these issues and beginning to see them realistically. We have been able to achieve this thanks to our clients’ high-quality professional background, which results in transparent and data-driven communication far removed from the fashionable but incorrect “greenwashing”.
Our planet’s environment is facing negative impacts. There is still time to take decisive action. It seems a difficult task, but we still have the opportunity to reverse some of the negative trends, to take action to minimise the damage, to restore very important ecosystems and to protect much more rigorously what we have left.
