Sustainability & fair trade

Responsibility

We understand that everything we do has an impact on people and the environment, which is why we undertake to ensure that we operate in an ethical and socially responsible way. With a deep-rooted respect for the world’s resources, we are committed to ensuring a sustainable, fair and rewarding future for all our staff, suppliers and growers – wherever they live. The twin threads of strong ethics and social accountability are intrinsically woven throughout our business.

Sustainability plays an integral role in our organic projects. We take our responsibility to people and the environment very seriously, by investing resources - time, research, experience and capital - into projects to give them the best chance of success.
 

Pure, organic, ethical, sustainable

Supporting the development and promotion of sustainable products is at the heart of Earthoil, one of the few organisations to have expertise in the entire supply chain – from growing and processing, to freight and distribution, to oil analysis and market knowledge. Earthoil understands that continuity of supply and a reliable and consistent product are fundamental for clients. We also engage and work in close co-operation with our customers. As a unique supplier in the organic pressed seed oil and essential oil industry, we manage our own grower projects - having a direct input into all aspects - from the employment of field officers to ensuring farmers are educated about organic fertiliser methods. Our Specials Projects Director checks on the progress of Earthoil’s projects, ensuring organic certification issues are resolved and helping staff on the ground with any concerns they might have.
 

Local benefits

We also make a commitment to improving the lives of those people who are involved with our projects - the farmers and their families through a community fund and a commitment to independent fair trade certification for each project, Earthoil is dedicated to projects which benefit the lives of people around the world.

We want our clients to become involved in Earthoil projects at grass roots level and can help them access our smallholder producer communities and be part of their development.
