Since you probably don't live under a rock, you have certainly noticed that: Sustainability is a hot topic, hotter than ever and here to stay 🔥 now also for the everyday consumer, companies and even governmental institutions. And thankfully so, since this is not a challenge that only the scientists need to fix. No, we are all a part of the solution.

But what is BeCause?

BeCause is a online hub for MARKETPLACE SUSTAINABILITY 🌏 We help you find sustainable brands to buy from, work for & impact. 🦸 How? We give brands the opportunity to showcase their Sustainability CV on our hub, digitally. Thereby, also creating features that help them showcase it on their own channels. The hub can simply:

  • Assemble companies’ digital sustainability CV in one single place – e.g., SDGs, Donations, Awards, Certifications, Industry Challenges.

  • Organize the sustainability communications in a simplified and organized way that all stakeholders can understand. 

  • Showcase easily & automatically to all audiences across various channels – via our widgets, reports, integrations and more.

Unfortunately, it is currently hard to find, compare, trust, resonate and reward the sustainability of brands.👎 BeCause will be the hub to bridge that gap and ecosystem - conveniently, believably & worthwhile. 🔥 Come Be-your-Cause with us🚀
