Welcome to The Ethical Company Organisation


For over a decade we have provided the world's leading clear and comparative ethical information on thousands of companies and brands to ethical shoppers, NGOs, ethical companies and ethical investors. We compare hundreds of companies' ethical and Corporate Social Responsibility records in relation to up to 15 different ethical criteria under the 3 general headings of Environment, Animals and People.  This involves working closely on ethical shopping issues with ethical consumers and ethical companies plus drawing from the vast information supplied by some of the world's leading NGOs - including Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, Christian Aid and many more.  Our research reports both the poor ethical standards and the good ethical standards of the world's companies and brands and our aim is at all times to be both transparent and fair. Our work aims to encourage the world's companies to treat humans, animals and the environment with the highest possible levels of respect - and those that don't we will report on accordingly.
