While Green Matters’ primary mission is to help people learn how to live sustainably and make the world a better place for all of us who inhabit it, we are dedicated to making this goal a reality by making sure all of our writing and reporting is done responsibly and ethically.
At Green Matters, we adhere to the Society of Professional Journalists’ Code of Ethics, which offers four principles that guide our reporting: seek the truth and report it, minimize harm, act independently, and be accountable and transparent.
We firmly believe that accurate and impartial journalism is at the heart of a functioning society, and as active members of our global community, we recognize our role in holding those in power accountable and dedicated to sharing diverse perspectives that make up our community at large.
As journalists, we have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to plagiarism, and we do not allow our writers or editors to accept gifts, bribes, or any sort of compensation in exchange for coverage or press.
At Green Matters, we are committed to acting independently, but thinking globally.
Sponsored Content and Product Recommendations
We always disclose when we feature affiliate or sponsored content; we only feature products that are thoroughly researched and approved by either our dedicated team of green-obsessed editors, or an expert. If we feature a product, it’s because we genuinely believe in the product — and hope you do too.
Accuracy and Fact Checking
As a news source, accuracy is at the heart of everything we do. Everything published on Green Matters is thoroughly researched by our writers, and then vetted by our editors who not only fact check the claims within a story, but also edit the stories for clarity, style, typos, and tone.
As a news source, we are also dedicated to updating what we’re sharing as news breaks and new information is made public.
With authenticity and accountability at the center of everything we do, we strive to only put out the most up-to-date and accurate information at all times. Still, sometimes things are missed. Spot a mistake? Let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
