Hello Good World is an eCommerce Platform that allows ethical, sustainable and/or cause driven business to sell through our network of conscious consumers.
Each brand has been given a Hello Good World Bronze, Silver or Gold Standard that stem towards the social enterprise and impact-driven business model.
The Hello Good World rating standard is cross-examined and rated on the following aspects. This is an indicative evaluation and subject to audit at any time.
• Business Model
We are huge believers that the social enterprise model is one of the best places to start changing the world. They say for every $1 spend with a social enterprise can be at least $3 value back into communities across the globe. But we know cases of SROI (Social Return on Investment) being up to 30 x value for every dollar because of the long-lasting positive implications that can create the true change.
Our ratings are based on the following:
Demonstrated the highest level of problem solving and outcomes to a social, cultural or environmental issue whilst proving strong ethics and holistic sustainability. Aligned with at least three of the Sustainable Development Goals. It is allocated to the top 10% of the brands on our books.
Demonstrated a high level of problem solving and outcomes to their mission whilst providing a well-rounded solution. Silver companies demonstrate patterns to continually increase their impact or better their business practises and are recognised of having a high likelihood of reaching gold status within 24 months. Aligned with at least one of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Demonstrated a good level of problem solving and outcomes to their mission or for a cause. Bronze companies demonstrate patterns to increase their impact or better their business practises. Aligned with at least one of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Demonstrated areas little to no competency of creating a solution to provide an outcome to a social, cultural or environmental issue. A malalignment with one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals may have been found. These companies will not be found on the Hello Good World eCommerce Platform.
We are SO inspired by the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, otherwise known as the SDG’s, not only because it gives us as humans a measure for what true and holistic sustainability looks like, but also because the co-existence of the goals covers everything we need for a peaceful planet.

The concept of Hello Good World was born from our founder, Rachel Whitworth, that dedicated her marketing skills to working with social enterprise and good businesses for years.
