SEE What You Are Buying Into is a labelling scheme for businesses that are open and honest about their Social, Environmental and Ethical (SEE) policies and practices.
To use the SEE Logo, a company completes the SEE Questionnaire, developed in collaboration with leading NGOs. Businesses guarantee the accuracy and veracity of their responses and publish them on the SEE What You Are Buying Into website for scrutiny, monitoring and comment by the public. Using Web 2.0 technology, the scheme is developing into a social movement.
Companies and citizens work together to drive improvement in SEE business responsibility.
