Who we are
RANK A BRAND: CONSUMERS FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Rank a Brand is an international community of responsible consumers who want to buy sustainable and fair products or services. Rank a Brand exist to enable consumers to make responsible shopping choices and to put pressure on brands to become more sustainable, socially responsible and transparent.
Rank a Brand was founded in 2009 by Niels Oskam. Under his leadership Rank a Brand has become one of Europe’s largest brand-comparison sites on sustainability and corporate social responsibility.
If you want to join our community of responsible consumers, support our work and have a say in the sectors and brands we rank and which criteria we apply, you can become Friend of Rank a Brand for €25 per year, or more if you can afford.
Rank a Brand would not exist without the active participation of a large group of volunteers. These rankers research the sustainability and social responsibility of sectors and brands.
The rankers are the heart of Rank a Brand. This group makes sure all of the brands we have ranked have up-to-date scores on our website. On a voluntary basis, they search through brand websites, CSR reports and other public sources to find the answers to our questions.
Rank a Brand also has a group of volunteers who do other roles, for example in communication, fundraising, website and IT.
