IMPACT & ETHICS
The UN World Commission on Environment and Development says, "sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
Sustainable initiatives reduce environmental impact and improve social equity with inclusive governance that positively impacts communities.
ECOSHIFT re-thinks sustainability with inclusive, transparent initiatives.
Our ethical charter is a statement on our policy:
our aim is to keep it clear, simple, straightforward and crafted with intent.
We believe in and support an environmentally responsible, equitable transition to sustainable production—specifically, fairness: to the environment, our members and our partners.
ECOSHIFT believes in transparency. Our tools allow everyone to see and verify our actions. We promote consensus-based decisions founded on the principle of a voice and a vote for every member.
Our international makeup supports and promotes equal opportunity, diversity, and equality. We pride ourselves on tolerance. Moreover, we oppose discrimination of all forms: origin, race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, language, social situation, religion or belief, and disability. We are against child labour and unfair treatment of workers.
We believe that big change comes with baby steps that positively impact people and the communities they live in.
As a sustainable organization, ECOSHIFT aims to reduce the environmental footprint of its actions continually. We encourage our members to practice pesticide-free agriculture, recycle, use biodegradable supplies, locally-sourced products wherever possible and support fair-trade products.
We are socially conscious, promoting human rights, humanitarian principles, environmental protection, sustainable development, and the rule of law.
ECOSHIFT supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the IBSO Worldwide Charter for Fair International Commerce.
