Paul Monaghan, founding Director of Up the Ethics, was architect of much of the UK co-operative movement's ethical and environmental excellence for nearly two decades.
He worked across sectors as diverse as Food, Finance, Pharmacy, Funerals and Travel. Contributions included the creation of world-class programmes of environmental management, ethical finance, sustainability reporting and an unsurpassed commitment to campaigning and progressive public policy intervention.
A small, committed group of businesses have made fantastic leaps with their social and environmental impacts, but we still some way from the transition toward a sustainable economy.
Management consultancy Up the Ethics has been established to help corporate pioneers take the next steps and help precipitate much needed systematic change.
