For those businesses who want to demonstrate environmental and social leadership but do not want to get involved with carbon offsetting. Ekos Rainforest Guardian certification provides an opportunity to simply align your brand with community-based, fair trade styled rainforest protection projects.
The costs of this annual purchase can be shared with your customers with you providing the leadership - particularly businesses with retail platforms. One way to do this is to lock in a micro-donation (e.g. $0.10) onto the unit price of the goods and/or services you sell, and use the annual revenue to buy Habitat Hectare Units and be an Ekos Rainforest Guardian.
