About taken from German Sustain Concept*:

"After working together successfully for many years, fashion designer Antonia Goy and architect Bjoern Kubeja launched their own fashion label in 2018. Here, exquisite tailoring meets timeless elegance and sustainable, enduring design. Working Title uses only the finest natural materials such as mulesing-free wool, cashmere, organic silk, organic cotton and Tencel from certified European manufacturers and rejects man-made fibres in order to minimise harmful residues through wear and disposal. The collections are manufactured in Germany, Italy and Poland."

* German Sustain Concept is a programme initiated by the Fashion Council Germany under the auspices of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) with partners Neonyt, the global hub for fashion, sustainability and innovation of Messe Frankfurt, Bikini Berlin and Showroom.de.

Based in Berlin

The R Collective | Rescue. Reuse. Reimagine.
About:
"The R Collective is a social impact upcycled fashion brand with a mission to create beautiful clothes using waste materials that was born from Redress, the pioneering Hong Kong based charity working since 2007 to reduce waste in fashion. Conceived by Redress’ Founder, Christina Dean, we are a team of highly seasoned and dedicated fashion professionals from design, sourcing, production, marketing, business and sustainability working with the collective goal of creating the world’s best sustainable fashion brand that reduces waste and pollution, empowers consumers and raises funds for charity Redress. With our heart set on reducing the estimated 92 million tons of industry textile waste that is created annually, we boldly pair creativity, courage and conviction to divert waste from landfill and incineration and into wardrobes. And so, The R Collective journey began.
[...]
We collaborate with award-winning sustainable designers from around the world to create unique upcycled collections, which complement our in-house Main Collections. Our unique access to over 150+ innovative design talents from The Redress Design Award, the world’s largest sustainable fashion design competition run by Redress, enables us to reuse a broad range of rescued textile waste and to build a circular fashion system."

Pure Waste
Intro by WOMB:
"Their practice involves using only fabrics coming 100% from recycling. They stick to barely a couple of Nordic colours along greys, blues and blacks, as they use zero dyes - the colour palette of the clothing simply depends entirely on the colours of the dead stock materials that they happen to use for a given collection and how they mix them with each other. The garments of Pure Waste are produced in India, in a factory that they own, which ensures high level of control and keeping themselves informed about the process of production. That way, they stay assured that no un-sustainable practices are present, and that their fabrics don’t get mixed with others accidentally (which is often the case with, for example, organic cotton production sites, where organic cotton often gets tangled with regular one)."

From Finland.

Framasoft
About:
"From the educational world and now turned towards popular education, Framasoft is above all a network of projects, of which the first, directory https://framalibre.org, dates back to 2001.

These projects are run by people working together with the same desire: promote digital freedoms.

Respect for the fundamental freedoms of users, guaranteed by legal contracts (the free licenses), is at the heart of the librist movement and ensures that the human remains in control of the digital tool.

The Framasoft’s goal is to offer, mainly online, a set of concrete and practical tools to facilitate adoption:

of free software (directory, USB sticks, installer…);
of free cultural creations (blog, translation, publishing house…);
of free services (more than 30 free services in the project De-google-ify Internet).

Presented as a "gateway to the Free World", the network Framasoft wants to position itself as a bridge between the librarian community and the general public."

One of their projects is for example PeerTube, kind of a free, decentralised Youtube.

PeerTube
About:
"PeerTube is software that you install on a web server. It allows you to create a video hosting website, so create your "homemade YouTube".

The difference to YouTube is that it’s not intended to create a huge platform centralizing videos from the whole world on a single server farm (which is horribly expensive).

On the contrary, PeerTube’s concept is to create a network of multiple small interconnected video hosting providers.
[...]
Fundamental freedoms:

- PeerTube is freely provided, no need to pay to install it on your server;
- We can look under the hood of PeerTube (its source code): it’s auditable, transparent;
- Its development is community-based, it can be enhanced by everyone’s contributions.
"

PeerTube is a free/libre software financed by a French non-profit organization: Framasoft (https://framasoft.org).

Impact Institute – Towards the Impact Economy
About:
"Our mission at the Impact Institute is to empower organizations and individuals to realize the impact economy by creating a common language for impact and providing the tools to use it. We develop open-source standards for impact measurement and valuation and provide organizations with the tools, training, and services to implement them.

The Impact Institute is a social enterprise and a spin-off of True Price. True Price, founded in 2012, developed methods and tools to measure and monetize impact. In 2018, True Price decided to continue as a non-profit focused on maintaining a standard and community to realize true pricing, a system where consumers can see and voluntarily pay the true price of their products. All services, as well as the development of new methods and technologies, have been spun off to the Impact Institute."

SMART (by Sustainable Food Systems GmbH)
About (from FIBL):
"The term "sustainability" is used inflationary and inconsistently. Hundreds of sustainability frameworks have been developed and more and more companies have "sustainable" products on offer. For consumers and buyers it is very difficult to tell whether a farm or a company are actually operating sustainably or not. In addition, farmers and companies in the agricultural and food sector face the question how to assess their sustainability performance in a comparable way and to communicate it in a credible way, without pursuing green-washing.

Therefore the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture FiBL has chosen to develop SMART – Sustainability Monitoring and Assessment RouTine – a method that allows farms and companies in the food sector to assess their sustainability in a credible, transparent and comparable manner. SMART is the world’s first tool, which is fully consistent with the SAFA-Guidelines (UN FAO Sustainability Assessment of Food and Agriculture systems) and provides an efficient manner to apply them in practice.

However, SMART is not a new standard, certification system or label but solely an analysis and assessment instrument. It therefore does not compete with existing standards and certificates, but is a useful supplement.

In order to provide SMART sustainability assessment services FiBL founded the spin-off Sustainable Food Systems GmbH (SFS) which now is the owner of the lincense rights and rights of use of SMART. The SFS is owned by FiBL Switzerland, Germany and Austria."
