What We Believe
Shoppers and sellers can work together to make a green impact – with a little help.
We believe that shoppers are concerned about the sustainability impact of their purchases and want to make greener choices. So many sellers are feeling the pressure from their customers to show more commitment to and be more transparent about sustainability efforts.
We also believe that being sustainable is good for business because it reduces many operational costs, gives businesses a competitive advantage and increases profits in the long run.
The Directgreen program was created to help shoppers and sellers work together to make a green impact.
What We Do
We work with local businesses and communities to help people make an impact every day.
The Directgreen program provides a framework for assessing companies’ sustainability initiatives, giving customers the reassurance that their purchases are making a genuine difference.
Through three different pledge plans, the program allows sellers to choose the level of commitment that they’re comfortable with, so they are better able to keep their pledges. This means sellers can join the program even if they are only just starting to take sustainable actions.
The program also lets shoppers make double the impact through a loyalty system. Shoppers earn points when they purchase from Directgreen sellers, which they can use to support global projects through the Directgreen Foundation.
What’s more, Directgreen has a strict code of practices for the partners and projects that we work with, so as to maintain the integrity of the program.
