We are proud to present our members

The following organizations are members or in the process of becoming members. Our members and future members strive to use transparency as a transformative tool in their business. While they all have their own products, missions and are at a different stage of transparency implementation, they all strive to uphold the highest levels of transparency. Not only on what they know about their chain, products and processes, but also on what they don’t yet know.

Learn more below about each members business, products, transparency journey and how to visit them.

SEKEM has been widely praised as an “Egyptian organic pioneer” and has received the 2003 Right Livelihood Award (“Alternative Nobel Prize”) as a „Business Model for the 21th Century” and an “economy of love”. With part of their profits the SEKEM companies co-finance the social and cultural activities of the SEKEM Development Foundation that runs, among others, schools and a Medical Centre. In 2012 Heliopolis University for Sustainable Development has been opened under the umbrella of SEKEM Initiative.

They share a non-negotiable product design philosophy, to make products healthier and fully recyclable. Niaga® does not compromise on performance, even if it takes a radical change in manufacturing and business model.
