Making Reading a better place for all to live and work
What is Ethical Reading?
Ethical Reading exists to help organisations in Reading and their teams do the right thing by each other, the wider community and the environment, and to thrive in the process.
It’s all about supporting people to take a compassionate, respectful and responsible approach when making decisions at every level, from the board room to everyday interactions.
We want to encourage organisations of all kinds and their and employees to make more ethical choices. We’ll do this by bringing people together at events with inspirational speakers and opportunities to share ideas, and by providing access to thought-provoking training resources. More…
Embracing ethics at work
By embedding ethics into the way they work day to day, organisations can make a more positive impact on employees, customers, suppliers, communities and the environment.
We also believe that taking an ethical approach to financial control and governance can have a positive effect on an organisation’s own finances as well as the wider economy.
We want to encourage people in Reading to incorporate ethical values into the DNA of the organisations they belong to. Find out more about our visions and aims
While our initial focus is on our own local area, we believe that people and organisations everywhere could benefit from a greater focus on ethical values. Find out more about the concept of Ethical Cities

Let’s work together
Whichever organisations you’re involved with and whatever your role, we need your help to make Ethical Reading a success. So whether you’re the CEO of a corporation, an intern at a start-up, a volunteer at a charity or work in the public sector, if this sparks your interest, we’d love you to become a member. Although our focus is mainly on Reading and the surrounding area, you don’t necessarily need a connection with Reading to join and get involved. All are welcome!
