Guide

Understand how BeCause works, what sustainability is, how the score is constructed and other Frequently Asked Questions.

Intro

What is BeCause?

Because is the worlds first sustainability hub where conscious people & brands connect to show & grow care for their common sustainable causes. Check out the following video from our team, to learn more about the platform or read more about us as an organization here.

Sustainability

What is sustainability and what does it mean for a citizen?

“Sustainability” basically refers to our world’s ability to Thrive – Environmentally, Socially & Economically – in a Durable manner that meets our needs & opportunities of today without sacrificing them for generations of tomorrow. In other words, our ability to sustain optimal conditions for People, Planet & Prosperity. Developing towards a fair and healthy future hinges upon us all contributing to each of these 3 sustainability dimensions and understanding how they go hand-in-hand. Here, both Citizens & Companies are key to the solution - as Citizens impact Companies as employees, consumers and investors – while Companies in turn are the primary employer of People, consumer of Planetary resources and generator of Prosperity.So we call on all Citizens to review companies in everyday life with this in mind, so we can support and advance brands with evermore sustainable impact.

Causes

What are the SDGs and how do I find my key causes?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a framework of 17 overall goals - or causes - deemed the most critical by the United Nations for the world to work on today, in order to develop a sustainable tomorrow.
On BeCause, consider the 17 SDGs a common and actionable language between Citizens & Companies. This allows you to focus and match on the specific SDG cause(s) you care the most about supporting in everyday life! Which cause do you cherish?

Rating

How does the score work?

The CauseScore rates the environmental, social, and economic sustainability of companies - according to their past, present and future footprint and leadership on sustainability issues of special importance within the industrial context operated in.
This rating system is designed to help both Citizen & Company users evaluate and compare the sustainability of a specific company with peers and own ambitions - in order to inform decision-making in the everyday marketplace.

Points

What is my role as a Citizen in the BeCause Community?

As a conscious Citizen, there are multiple ways in which you can contribute to a sustainable future. Regardless of how far you are on your own sustainability journey. In return, you improve your karma, ranking & impact on fellow community Citizens & Companies. Monthly, we also celebrate the Citizen topping the high score with most points earned. From time to time, this award also comes with prizes & perks from sustainable companies. Most contributions to community – e.g. liking, disliking, following, sharing, commenting and adding companies that are part of your daily life – earns you points.

Reviewing

How do I review the sustainability of a company?

Satisfied or not, voice your opinion on the individual sustainability initiatives of companies they transparently showcase on the BeCause hub. Provide companies with feedback – e.g. through liking, disliking, following, sharing, commenting and adding missing companies – to reward their good efforts and help them to grow their causes further.
