The Ethical Company Organisation offers Ethical Accreditation, which certifies the Company or Brand in question has scored highly enough in our overall analysis of its Corporate Social Responsibility record.
The application process takes 6 weeks and involves our research teams analysing each applicant company’s record on up to 15 specific criteria under the 3 general headings of Environment, Animals and People. We search for criticisms within several thousand documents from NGO’S, Campaign Groups and Court Reports. Ethical Accreditation screening includes the applicant company and its ultimate holding company. The research is repeated every 12 months to ensure that our Ethical Accreditation awards remain up to date.
