Pricing and Billing

We accept all major debit and credit cards from customers in every country including Visa, Mastercard, American Express as well as mobile payment options such as Apple Pay and Google Pay. Through Stripe payments we also accept direct debits for subscriptions.

Accreditation

ethy accreditation is valid for 12 months, after which each member will be required to take the assessment again to ensure an accurate sustainability profile. There is no fee associated with the reassessment for existing members.

Assessment

The assessment questionnaire is digital and accessed through the company's dashboard after signing up. The assessment is designed to be as clear as possible, with helpful guidance displayed next to each question throughout.

We recommend reading Our Standards for the assessment criteria beforehand and gathering the proof required before signing up and submitting your assessment questionnaire. That way you can be confident going into the assessment.
