- a). The information from each seller is analyzed individually and any additional information needs or needs for improvements are taken up with the seller. After providing all the needed information and completing the process successfully, the seller's products receive The Etho verified status in our online shop. The questionnaire/production update will be done annually, on top of regular communication with the sellers.
- b). In case a non-certified seller refuses to share the requested information, The Etho abstains from selling these products.
- c). A periodical analysis and summary on the ethical questionnaire responses (keeping the sellers' details anonymous) will be shared with all sellers for mutual learning and sharing.
4. Impact Reporting: The Etho will report on its activities and impact in an annual impact report, released in the first quarter of the following year.
