Osmo UK, the
eco-friendly wood and finishes expert, is celebrating its tenth year of being
awarded Ethical Accreditation. The Aylesbury-based company has once again
scored highly in an analysis of its approach to Corporate Social
Responsibility, demonstrating Osmo’s continued commitment to customers, staff,
trade colleagues and shareholders.
Applicants to the Ethical
Company Accreditation Scheme are subject to a stringent evaluation under the
categories of Environment, Animals and People, covering topics such as
environment, animal rights, and human rights. Ethical Company
Accreditation is awarded to organisations which obtain an outstanding overall
score in an evaluation of their Corporate Social Responsibility record, and
which are successfully screened against other companies within their market
sectors. Osmo can carry on displaying the Ethical Award and Ethical
Company logos, providing consumers with a guarantee, that as a company, Osmo
has good ethical standards.
The Ethical Company Organisation’s
research and screening process also applies to the applicant’s ultimate holding
company and any subsidiaries. The procedure is repeated annually to
ensure that the record of companies holding the Ethical Company Accreditation
award remains up to date. Successful applicants have license to use the
Ethical Company Logo on letterheads, websites, and other promotional material.
The Ethical Company
Organisation recently compiled ethical comparison research on paint brands, and
Osmo ranked top against eleven other brands. Osmo scored top ranking for
environmental report, nuclear power, animal welfare, human rights, armaments,
political donations, ethical accreditation, boycott and other criticisms. This
has resulted in Osmo being awards a 95 Ethical Company Index.
