The $500 billion annual global advertising and media industry has the potential to be an educational tool for promoting sustainable lifestyles beyond consumerism. The EthicMark® Awards serve as a “carrot” to cajole advertising and media into more creative, positive approaches.
A prize of the EthicMark’s caliber engages the advertising industry, recognizing reform leaders. After 10 years of awards, the EthicMark®, partnering with Latin America’s prestigious Premio Renato Castelo Branco award, highlights visionary ad campaigns from around the world, raising the bar.
EthicMark® award-winning companies are recognized for 1) the creativity of their message, 2) the value of the product or service AND 3) the quality of the company culture. This all-encompassing standard ensures the integrity of the Awards and the esteem accruable to winners’ reputations. Judges’ criteria include: truthfulness; portrayal of healthy lifestyles and behaviors; high standards of responsibility and trustworthiness; respect for diversity and human rights; and avoiding sordid, sensationalist or degrading depictions. Winners model and publicize the value of ethical markets while simultaneously promoting what is profitable for business, society and the planet. See the list of internationally respected judges.
The annual EthicMark® Awards are presented in partnership with: ESPM, school of communication, marketing and business management in Brazil; GlobeScan; TBLI; Sustainable Brands; Where Good Grows and Tomorrow’s Company. Winners are announced at the SRI Conference each Fall.
