New Ethical Guide at Ambiente 2016

The upcoming February edition of consumer goods fair Ambiente
will deliver a brand new Ethical Style Guide

As the world’s leading trade fair for the sector, Ambiente reflects the market in its full breadth and depth, and this includes new developments in the product field and channels of distribution.

For example, consumers around the world are showing an increasing interest in sustainable products and, for the first time in 2016, Ambiente will offer buyers orientation in a highly complex global market place.

With categories such as Eco-Friendly Materials, Fair & Social Production, Re-/Upcycling Design, and Handmade Manufacturing, the Ethical Style Guide provides insights into different aspects of sustainability offered by numerous Ambiente exhibitors.

The exhibition stands of companies that make their products using ethical and / or sustainable methods can be found quickly and easily using the Guide and are labelled accordingly. Using transparent criteria, a jury of experts from the World Fair Trade Organisation, the Centre for the Promotion of Imports from Developing Countries (CBI) and the German Design Council (Rat für Formgebung), as well as other specialists, will decide on which companies are to be included in the Ethical Style Guide.

Ambiente exhibitors have until 28 October 2015 to apply for inclusion. The requirements for inclusion in the Ethical Style Guide and a questionnaire can be found on the internet at

Ambiente takes place in Frankfurt am Main from 12 to 16 February 2016.
