GBE Scrutiny

GBE Scrutiny
About:


What information does GBE scrutinise?

  • When judging a product for its suitability to be added to GBE Website we currently use over 400 criteria.
  • Not all apply to every company, product or services.
  • Claims will be made by the manufacturer, in literature, advertising and websites.
  • GBE judges if the claims are valid or greenwash.
  • Quite often the wording is ambiguous, misinterpreted or wrongly applied and sometimes just plain wrong.
  • Company policy or strategy statements are often bigger picture claims but actions against policy are often not followed up.
  • Independent third party certification or test are important means of proving claims and these will be scrutinised.
