Our remote research team
Remote researchers summarise articles and reports that they’ve read online, and send them directly to the Ethical Consumer team here in Manchester, UK.
Once moderated, the entries are published on Ethical Consumer's Corporate Critic database, and may also contribute to buyers’ guides, articles and company screenings.
Because the entire project is online, researchers can be based anywhere in the world. We are interested in stories about any company on any of the issues covered by our ratings system. RRG members may add stories which are relevant to their research interests, track a company or companies, or regularly scan a specific publication for any relevant stories. Many researchers choose to take on tasks from a list we share, which we are regularly adding new campaign reports to.
This project aims to ensure that this data doesn't go under the radar and can be shared with a wider audience.
