In today’s world, many decisions are made based on a web search. We want to empower our users to do good by helping them to make more sustainable choices in their lives. By placing a green leaf icon alongside selected websites in our search results, we are highlighting information to help with that.
We believe that the companies and organisations behind these “green leaf” websites share our mission. They may have demonstrated ecologically friendly business practices or supply sustainable products or services. Where appropriate they have been assessed by ecological standards organisations including ones such as Economy for the Common Good, Hilfswerft, and Natrue. Many, like Ecosia, are also certified B Corporation members.
It’s important to note that the “green leaf” search highlights are not advertisements or paid results, and they are ranked on the search page no more favourably than any other. No financial relationship exists between Ecosia and any of the “green leaf” websites.
