When founding SB Pinnacle it was imperative that our sustainable and ethics goals were the front of our priorities.
Of course we wanted our efforts to be officially RECOGNIZED so there is that added security for our customers when choosing who to shop with, so we applied and were successful for multiple Ethy accreditation’s.
What is Ethy?
Founded on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Ethy vets and accredits businesses as sustainable, allowing you to engage with trustworthy shops that align with your values and gain support along your sustainability journey. Ethy’s accreditation framework helps mitigate greenwashing and allows you to connect with genuinely ethical and sustainable companies that care about people & planet. Best part? You can access all of this consolidated information for free via their app.
