Blog updated 24 October 2023

At Glimmer, our unwavering conviction dictates that sustainability, diversity, and inclusion must permeate the essence of every organisation’s very DNA.

For us, the authenticity and potency of sustainability are closely intertwined with the mission and values that define our business.

Our social and environmental responsibilities are embedded in the intentional ethical design of our platform. This is how Glimmer, our sustainability-focused platform differentiates itself from the rest of the crowd. Designing technology for the greater good. We’re purpose-driven, not profit-driven.

We understand that privacy and security are of key concern to many people, and you may be one of them. Therefore, privacy and security are also key components of the architecture of our Glimmer web and mobile applications.

And we think you’ll be pleased to know that we don’t employ third-party cookies. Your online behaviour is not tracked. Period.

💡BEFORE you hit SHARE, double-check the source! Is it from a reliable site? Can you trust the author?

🤔 THINK about the content! Does it sound too good or bad to be true? Fact-check!

❤️ SHARE responsibly – only spread stuff you’d proudly discuss with friends and family.

We believe that it is our ethical responsibility to ensure that each one of us is making informed choices to reduce the harm we knowingly or unknowingly are causing our environment, the very planet that sustains all life.

Glimmer acknowledges the undeniable truth: climate change is a human-caused crisis. We’re not just part of the problem; we’re committed to being part of the solution. It’s a global effort, and we’re here to facilitate cooperation for the benefit of both people and the planet.

We’re proud supporters of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our aim is to raise public awareness about social and environmental sustainability, the climate crisis, and regenerative practices. We’re here to inspire positive change and accelerate action for a more equitable world.
