Corporate Social Responsibility.
Our mission at Digital Ethos.
We believe that businesses can make a difference to our environment and the people in it when they put their minds to it. This is why we strive for corporate social responsibility as a digital marketing agency, so we can contribute and give back to people and the world around us.
Businesses can make a huge difference if they decide what causes are important to them, embrace initiatives that are proven to have a positive impact and action their plans. Having environmentally and socially conscious ambitions not only enables us to thrive but helps others to as well. This is what makes us stand out from the crowd.
Having these kinds of ambitions gives us purpose both individually and collectively. It drives Digital Ethos forward to reach our full potential, enabling us to work with other businesses, brands and clients that also want to make a difference.
Our impact so far.
Together, making an impact.
We have partnered with Offset Earth which has helped us to set in motion all kinds of initiatives to make our environmental impact a positive one. From planting trees to investing in intelligent, renewable energy, they are enabling us to make meaningful changes for the better.
This is one of the best methods for reducing your carbon footprint and because of this, we are passionate about planting trees, as they provide habitats for wildlife, boost ecosystems and even support communities around the world.
Our partnership with Offset Earth has also led us to work with The Eden Reforestation Projects, which plant millions of trees all around the world. We continue to plant trees and have committed to planting 100,000 trees in 2021.
Creating more wind power.
Offset Earth has started wind power projects all around the world and we have been proud to be involved in their work in countries such as Indonesia, Turkey and India. These renewable energy sources provide clean energy to local people and are a fantastic choice compared to fossil fuel alternatives.
Supporting biomass power plants.
Rice husks are used in Offset Earth’s biomass power plants to create renewable energy through steam turbines, making the most of natural material that might otherwise go to waste. They prevent tons of carbon dioxide from being released into the environment, while supporting local communities, by installing health clinics and funding education.
Digital Ethos has always strived for diversity and inclusivity in our workforce, as we believe different perspectives, experiences, identities and backgrounds make the best kind of business.
Our team brings together people from all over the world to an environment that can support and nurture each individual, which in turn enables us all to thrive. As an equal opportunities employer, we are committed to removing barriers and offering support to all of our employees, whatever that might be.
We have found one of the best ways to create positive change is to work alongside charities. Because each charity has its own specialism and thoroughly understands who they are helping and how to help, they have been invaluable. They have enabled us to direct our efforts and resources, offering us advice, guidance and opportunities along the way.
Charities we have worked with:
Every November many of our staff grow out their moustaches, to raise awareness and support for Movember. We have participated in this movement to start conversations and help support research around prostate and testicular cancer.
United Against Violence and Abuse (UAVA).
This charity helps anyone who is suffering or has suffered from domestic abuse. Through helplines, programmes and by offering support, UAVA is making a difference in the Leicestershire area.
One Roof Leicester.
This charity offers shelter for an array of people, from those who are homeless to refugees and asylum seekers. One Roof Leicester provides semi-independent living and specialist support, in order for people to rebuild their lives.
This independent charity based in Corby delivers care to those suffering from long term illnesses, with skilled nurses and specialist palliative care. Whether residents at Lakeland Hospice need physical, emotional, social or spiritual help, they meet all of these needs.
Woodside Animal Centre rehomes all kinds of animals and offers welfare to domestic or wild animals all over Leicestershire. From seasonal advice to campaigning against litter, RSPCA Leicester is caring for animals across the county.
This independent mental health charity has been operating in Leicester for decades, working alongside businesses, corporations and individuals. Lamp offers an array of support to people who have a diagnosis and those who don’t, signposting individuals, so they can get the best support.
Our journey to becoming a Certified B Corporation
We are currently in the process of applying and becoming a Certified B Corporation, which means we will be among the top businesses in the UK that are making a difference in all kinds of environmental and social issues.
B Corporations need to reach a certain standard, showing that they are striving, maintaining and being transparent, in their efforts towards changing our world for the better.
The B Corp community are involved in all sorts of initiatives, from positive social action to reducing carbon emissions, in order to restore and protect our environment. Not only are B Corporations businesses, but they use their own growth to enable their employees, communities and local or global ecosystems to thrive.
Here at Digital Ethos, we instil this kind of thinking into everything we do. As well as having overarching aims to become carbon neutral, we value working with environmentally friendly, green and inclusive clients, which share our ethos and outlook on the world. From working with charities to creating a welcoming environment for our staff, we are always looking out for ways to make a difference.
