Be Ethical Logo

Be Ethical

Be Ethical Training supports a business to map, measure and report all of their ESG activities. The aim is to help that business formalise and bring structure to their initiatives, in support of that company’s future sustainability and growth.

Co-founders and directors Caroline Swailes and Heather de Groot met working for Bibby Line Group, who have been at the forefront of responsible business since 2006. By championing and sharing the businesses commitments to its people, communities and planet, they successfully engaged 5,000 employees to donate in excess of £6m to charitable causes and their local communities.

Going on to consult in communications and corporate social responsibility, they recognised the need to support and nurture a business to confidently define and manage all of their ESG activities internally.

In doing so, they founded Be Ethical Training and have created a 12-month training membership, coaching programme and online community for business owners and their employees to build and manage all of their ESG activity.

The training will help a business to understand how to measure and report those activities, understanding their social value and impact, bringing countless benefits to that organisation, its people and the planet.
