The mission of the Ethical Brand Foundation is to deliver entrepreneurial initiative development and support to disadvantaged communities wherever these are found – from the back streets of major cities to remote villages on every continent.

We aim to provide people from all cultures and socio–economic backgrounds with the knowledge, practical skills as well as the technical support and confidence to find their feet in self employment; to participate and compete in the global economy with an emphasis on self reliance and personal integrity.

We are self funded by supporting genuine ethical brands in various ways so that they enjoy sustainable competitive advantage.
