Girlguiding Scotland Research Report

Unlike most digital agencies, we’re driven by ethics, not profit:  we’re a co-operative and social enterprise, a democratic business, owned by the workers, true to the values of the co-operative movement.

Our belief in social justice shines through in everything we do. People we work with comment on our shared values, our level of engagement, and our respect for the individuals involved in every project.

We cycle, we re-cycle, we buy from ethical suppliers; and our prices are fair, with no outside shareholders demanding profits.
