Tickets now on sale


Ethical Consumer Conference 2015


Ethical Consumer is excited to announce that tickets are now on sale for its 2015 annual conference.

The event, entitled "Mainstreaming ethical consumption: risks challenges and opportunities", will take place in London on the 25th September 2015.

We have a very exciting line up that includes representatives from some of the biggest and most innovative ethical businesses on the planet including Fairphone, the Fairtrade Foundation and Triodos Bank.





Asking the important questions

On the day we'll be looking at the growth of the ethical market and asking how can it break out of its traditional niche? 

We'll be bringing together leaders in their field to help develop thinking on how producers, retailers and consumers need to evolve to meet the demands of the mainstream.

Delegates will hear about the state of the ethical market and future trends, and will be encouraged to participate in lively discussions on:

  • The big ethical consumer issues of the day such as palm oil and tax justice.
  • Reducing consumption.
  • Innovative campaigning business. 
  • Challenges and opportunities for ethical labelling.


The day will cover a wide variety of topics and include contributions from a host of leading ethical organisations, including:

  • Fairtrade Foundation
  • Forest Stewardship Council
  • Fairphone
  • Triodos Bank
  • MADE
  • Fair Tax Mark
  • SUMA
  • Social Enterprize Mark

With more to be confirmed.


We hope to see you there.



Date: Friday September 25th 2015

Time: 11:30am until 5:30pm

Place: Amnesty International Resource Centre, 17-25 New Inn Yard, London, EC2A 3EA
