Membership Claims

The UEBT’s name, logos and tag line ‘Sourcing with Respect’ are Trademarks / Service Marks of the Union for Ethical BioTrade and are subject to a license agreement.

Members of the Union for Ethical BioTrade are encouraged to communicate about their membership. Members may use the membership logo and issue clarifying statements regarding UEBT.

Non-members can at no time use the membership logo. Provisional Members can start communicating about their membership with UEBT but they are not entitled to use the membership logo, insofar as they are not Members approved by the Board of Directors.

The name and logos of the Union for Ethical BioTrade shall in no instance be used in a way that could induce a misunderstanding about the practices of the organisation in question.

The membership logo can be used on different types of communication materials of Members. This includes both general communication materials and product specific communication materials. However, the membership logo can at no instance be used on products, or on primary (e.g. bottle), or secondary (e.g. box) packaging.

UEBT’s membership logo should never be the primary element of Members’ communication materials, but rather be used as a ‘signature’. In case of product specific communication materials, the membership logo shall always be used together with the logo of the member organisation, rather than with the product logo.

For more information see the communication guidelines for Trading Members (En, Fr, Es) and Affiliate Members (En, Fr, Es).
