What is our ethos?

Green Ink:

  • is a socially and environmentally responsible company
  • treats everyone with respect
  • acts ethically, honestly and legally
  • supports sustainable international development and human rights
  • contributes to public debate by helping our clients to communicate their ideas
  • declines work that we consider to be dishonest in substance or harmful to people or to the environment.

We act on these principles in several ways.

We have a carbon offsetting scheme with Green Care, an NGO based in Cameroon. Each year, we calculate the ‘footprint’ of our work-related travel and make a donation to Green Care. Their team of volunteers then plants trees in the ever-growing Green Ink forest, located in the Bamenda Highlands. We also provide in-kind communications support to Green Care, such as the development of their website.

We have a corporate giving scheme, donating part of our profits each year to a charity. At present, this scheme supports Farm Africa, a British registered charity that helps African farmers to increase their harvests, sell produce and protect the environment, and also supports the Youth Building Green Program , a Kenyan NGO that aims to educate schools and communities to help them grow more food sustainably.

Furthermore:

  • Green Ink’s virtual business model means our team members don’t commute, reducing congestion and transport emissions.
  • All staff use FSC-certified or recycled paper.
  • Green Ink has signed the Charter for Compassion.
