We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been awarded Ethical Accreditation for the first time from the Ethical Company Organisation. Not only have our products passed the strict ethical audit, but we also received an impressive Ethical Company Index (ECI) score of 92 out of 100 in the organisation’s Good Shopping Guide. Calypso was listed as one of the top five most ethical sun protection brands in the world alongside Green People, Honesty, Cabana Sun and incognito.
The Good Shopping Guide
First published in 2002, the Ethical Company Organisation’s annual Good Shopping Guide rates the world’s companies and brands, helping customers to choose more eco-friendly, ethical products. The manufacturers of these products are assessed on how well they support the growth of social responsibility and ethical business.
At a time when the environment has become a key focus for many individuals and businesses around the world, it is vital that forward-thinking manufacturers are recognised for their efforts in this area. Our warehouse facility has an ‘A’ graded energy performance rating, which includes 400 solar photovoltaic panels fulfilling all our energy requirements. Also, our products are not tested on animals and we are committed to using recycled materials for our bottles in the future to reduce our carbon footprint.
We received our Ethical Accreditation on 19 September 2018, and we plan to display the Ethical Award logo on all our new products in 2019. We are proud to receive such a high ethical rating and are committed to continually improving our standing from a moral and environmental viewpoint.
