Terms and Conditions for Use of SBN Member Logo
Use of SBN Membership Logo
In May 2008 SBN launched a new logo. Regional specific as well as members, and sponsors logos were produced. Sustainable Business Network membership organisations are provided with a specific Membership logo for use on their websites, emails and printed material to demonstrate their commitment to working towards sustainable best practice.
The Sustainable Business Network membership logo may not be reproduced, except in exceptional circumstances with our express written permission.
Disclaimer and Permitted Use
The Sustainable Business Network's purpose is to advance and embed sustainable business practice. We do this by providing opportunities to learn and network with each other and provide members with best practice information & tools. SBN does not endorse any of its members, or their products or services, and use of the SBN Membership logo to indicate otherwise, either expressly or by implication, is prohibited. SBN reserves the right to withdraw use of the Membership logo at its discretion.
If permission to use the Membership logo is withdrawn as a result of a breach of these terms and conditions, it shall take effect immediately and stocks of materials bearing our name and logo shall be forthwith withdrawn from distribution at your expense. By agreeing to these terms and conditions you acknowledge that this is reasonable in order to safeguard our rights. If permission is withdrawn for other reasons, we shall give you a period of two calendar months' notice. No expenses will be covered by SBN.
Member organisations are permitted to use the Membership logo only whilst their membership remains current and fully paid. Should this cease to be the case, it is the responsibility of the organisation to immediately cease displaying the Membership logo at their expense.
The use of the logo is specific to member sites and where the logo is used on a corporate website, care should be taken to identify only member sites with the Membership logo.
Use of this logo is restricted to Sustainable Business Network members only.
Use of the logo is to demonstrate membership, and can be used on marketing collateral including websites, email signatures, brochures, sustainability reports and newsletters.
Use of the logo in advertising material must be signed off by SBN first - contact email@example.com
SBN does not endorse products or product ranges. Membership is not a certification, therefore placement on products is strictly forbidden.
