Ethical Certification for Bright Organisations
We make sure businesses and organisations with proven ethical commitments get the recognition and support they deserve
The Bright Ethics Standard
Bright Ethics is a leading specialist in Independent Ethical Certification for UK organisations. We work in partnership with a skilled team of assessors to deliver a progressive and credible assessment against our Ethical Standard.
We currently work in partnership with The Centre for Assessment, who help us deliver our certification to organisations of all sizes.
Our Ethical Standard has been developed utilising research into public expectations of business ethics and the activities and perceptions of businesses themselves. The standard promotes continuous development within organisations through identification of weaker and stronger areas of ethical impact.

What do we mean by ethical?
A question we get asked a lot is; why do you use the term ethical?
Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainable, Green, Responsible - these are all excellent terms for describing the positive agendas of organisations. However they are often linked to one area of concern e.g. environmental protection or waste reduction.
Ethics is a useful term because it relates to the the principles and standards which guide behaviours and decisions within organisations across their whole breadth, rather than within one distinct area.
We believe that for an organisation to make a real impact, it needs to look at the whole picture and have the ability to empower positive decision making in every employee.
Ethics are also important as ethical codes are created and upheld by society generally as a whole and form a living part of the structure of every society. This is why we felt it was so important to gather public opinion during our research phase.
Our research, alongside a review of research from a number of academics and institutions, helped us come to the following conclusion:
An ethical organisation as one that has actively demonstrated its real and tangible commitment to reducing its impact on the planet and increasing its positive impact on people and communities.
