The CSE Standard


The CSE label is the first sustainability seal for the certification of itegrated corporate management. In contrary to other certifications it refers to the whole company instead of its products. The standard stands for responsible business decisions which consider all stakeholders. The three main pillars of sustainability – ecology, society and economy – state areas of equal rank for the certified companies. Furthermore such companies continuously improve their sustainability performance. Certified companies may mark their products with the CSE seal which enables a reliable market communication.

The CSE Standard has been developed by six pioneer companies from the field of natural cosmetics and natural products. A further stage of the standard for other fields for natural products will be developed soon.

For further information, please see CSE for companies. The criteria your company has to meet to be CSE certified you can find in the CSE Standard:
