For well over a decade more than half of the world's largest 100 economies have not been countries, but large corporations and their influence is a legitimate cause for concern. The #1 item on their agenda is profits that often revolve around sub-human pay and working conditions, tax avoidance and other dealings that perpetuate social as well as economic injustice and destroy our natural resources.

It is practically impossible to distinguish genuine ethical brands from others when choosing between one product or another, but for ten years we have been working to change that. Our mission is to help you make choices that are not only better for you and your family, but for everyone engaged in or impacted by the production and distribution of the products and services you need or desire.

We encourage genuinely good organisations of almost every type and size to register in the eb directory and to display the logo as a symbol of their commitment to a humane, polite and just society. These organisations do not invest themselves in ticking boxes to satisfy the next audit. They are deeply invested in making life better and that is the outcome we believe every transaction should serve. That is of course always easier to say than it is to actually deliver, but the commercial rewards of increased loyalty, productivity, quality, innovation and competitive advantage are worth the effort.
