Nachhaltigkeitssiegel im Finanzmarkt

ECOreporter label

What stands behind the label?

Started in 1999, the ECOreporter from Dortmund has since been exclusively concerned with sustainable investment. The label is only awarded to sustainable financial products that come from providers whose products are sustainable. A single sustainable financial product in an otherwise conventional product family cannot be awarded the ECOreporter label.

Furthermore, only those who demonstrate sustainability in their core business in a holistic manner can receive an award. The ECOreporter label can be awarded in three categories: For banks (Sustainable Bank), financial products (Sustainable Financial Products), and institutional investors (Sustainable Institutional Investors).
