Sustainable business practices

Sustainable business practices are essential to our planet’s survival. One cannot continually take from the bank – eventually, the funds will run out, which is currently happening to the planet.

With too much taking and not enough giving back, there is no counterbalance for a sustainable future for us all.

We are dedicated to doing the utmost to provide our clients with sustainable business solutions to assist in restoring balance, ensuring we leave the lightest impact on our Earth.

“Looking at the world through a sustainability lens not only helps us ‘future proof’ our supply chain, it also fuels innovation and drives brand growth.”

Paul Polman, CEO of Unilver

Our sustainable design practices


We let people know that there is a sustainable solution to most of their business practices. For example, most people are unaware that you can host your website on renewable energy website servers or that printing on recycled paper using vegetable inks can be cheaper than conventional printing.

We practice what we preach

We live and work by our ideals.

Paperless office

We only print when absolutely necessary. We only purchase recycled paper and print using environmentally friendly practices.

Paper free campaigns

We encourage our clients to choose digital campaigns over print campaigns.

Net positive

We are a carbon neutral company, offsetting the company’s electricity usage with renewable energy credits and plant trees each month to give back to the planet.

Renewable energy website servers

We host our websites and client websites on web servers powered by renewable energy. If we host your email then this means it will be powered by renewable energy too!

Ethical suppliers

We use ethical suppliers where possible and encourage everyone else to use them as well through our list of ethical suppliers.

We buy local

Buying local means you are helping someone in your community survive whilst also reducing the carbon footprint of the products you purchase.

Sustainable alternatives to plastic

We encourage our clients to seek sustainable alternatives to plastic.

Working for good

We actively seek to work for clients who are making a positive impact to our society.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with The Ethical Agency to develop a brand identity and website for the Urban Food Systems (UFS) Coalition. The team at the Agency was extremely responsive, professional and accommodating to our needs and shifting timelines, all while delivering a very good product that is both functional, effective and captures the essence of the Coalition. We also appreciate that The Ethical Agency goes beyond providing great service - CSR and ethical standards are part of their DNA, and they are well versed in translating this into tangible outcomes and deliverables. We’d be happy to work with them again!

True to their brand, their work ethic and professionalism is what will keep me coming back. As a Head of Communications at the Centre for Environmental Rights, the Ethical Agency has come through for me on various projects we've worked on together. Not only do they always bring the passion and support for the project, but they always bring their A-Game when it comes to creativity. Highly recommended!
