The Ethical Gift Box & Sustainability
As an organisation we have a clear vision of the world we want to see: a kinder, more beautiful world where people recognise what’s important and seek to protect it.
We believe businesses have the power to lead the way in this: to carry out their work sustainably while influencing positive change. To seek an equitable society where ALL people are valued over profit.
While a zero environmental footprint is not fully achievable, we can and should strive towards it. As an organisation, the Ethical Gift Box treads as lightly as possible on the planet while using our buying policies and voices to raise up people around us.
We support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, adapting our systems to help the collective efforts to achieve as many of the goals as realistically possible.
We believe doing so makes the Ethical Gift Box a stronger organisation, accountable to our customers who put faith in us to do the right thing. We are transparent about our progress, reporting on it annually and publishing it on our website.
Our Targets to Achieve By End of 2024
The targets we are aiming to achieve by the end of 2024 are listed below by UN Sustainable Development Goal.
Whilst our aim is always to connect impactful suppliers with conscious led businesses, our purchases are controlled by what you the customer chooses to buy. Therefore some of our targets are focussed on increasing the availability of certain product types (Fair Trade, Diverse Ownership etc.) on our web site.
