Green Origins

How ethical is Green Origins?

Green Origins is a sugar brand which has a good score on The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Sugar Ratings Table. With a high GSG score, Green Origins can be considered an ethical brand.

Green Origins hasn’t yet applied for Ethical Accreditation, but its high score would mean that if it did, it would be able to display The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Mark on its products.

We encourage other companies in the Ethical Sugar sector to follow Green Origins’ example and adopt more ethical policies and practices.

What does Green Origins do?

Green Origins was founded in 2008 with a mission to source superfoods from environmentally conscious and ethical suppliers.

In which areas does Green Origins perform well?

Green Origins performs well for GM as its website has a non-GMO statement, and for Organic as its sugar is certified by the Soil Association.

We found no criticism relating to Nuclear, Fossil Fuels, Animal Welfare, Political Donations or Armaments, therefore Green Origins scores well across these criteria. On top of this Green Origins has been awarded with our Ethical Innovator criterion for its clear ethical vision. Find out more about our ethical criteria.

What can Green Origins do to improve its score?

The above benchmark score that Green Origins is awarded on The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Sugar Ratings Table is the result of an evaluation of multiple ethical criteria.

As Green Origins already receives a top score in the Ethical Sugar sector, The Good Shopping Guide encourages it to get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. After sending in its application, Green Origins will be offered the use of The Good Shopping Guide ethical mark.

However we would encourage Green Origins to improve on the detail in its Environmental Report, for which it currently receives only a middle rating, in order to improve its score for these criteria. If Green Origins applies for Ethical Accreditation, The Good Shopping Guide would be able to offer some guidance on this.

Were you aware that your brand could benefit from Ethical Accreditation? If accredited by The Good Shopping Guide, brands can display our ethical mark, showcasing to consumers that it is an ethical and sustainable supplier.
