What is an ethical company?
A truly ethical company is using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems and taking concrete actions to make the world a better place.
When adding a company to FirmHugger it is therefore essential that the company is making a positive impact through one or more of the following (or similar) areas:
Ecology / organic principles
Good working conditions and fair trade
Zero-waste, Recycling or Upcycling
In addition, the company should clearly lay out its social and/or environmental vision and values on its website.
It's about dedication
In the end, it really comes down to the company's dedication in running a truly ethical business. FirmHugger is
for companies with only small green efforts compared to their core businesses.
Approval of a company
A company must be approved before it can appear on FirmHugger's main pages. The approval of a company is currently
decided by FirmHugger staff
based on input from the community (hugs, comments, and concerns) and our own research on the company according to FirmHugger's guiding principles.
The approval process aims to ensure the credibility of using FirmHugger for finding/displaying ethical companies and products of high standard - and is therefore in everybody's interest.
In time, the aim is to make approval entirely up to the community.
