We help companies make ethical purchasing decisions

Ethical Profiling Ltd. is your partner in the practice of sustainable business. We team up with corporations to assess their environmental impact and act as a consultant, sourcing agent, and design house of high performance, socially and environmentally conscious, ethically sourced products. We work with our clients to define their vision and determine how best they may achieve an authentic commitment to the tenets of corporate social responsibility.


  • Ethical Profiling creates opportunities for company’s to make ethical buying decisions without sacrificing style, quality, fit, function or price.
  • The Company offers it’s clients opportunities to “close the loop” on their own product by integrating old programs into future ones – Closed Loop. For some clients, the company has been able to use the waste of a client’s existing promotional product to build future eco friendly promotional items (ex: Coca-Cola’s Vancouver 2010 Olympic product produced from Post-Consumer Recycled PET).
  • Wherever and whenever possible, we consult our clients and provide them practical and meaningful ways to adhere to the three tenets of Corporate Social responsibility – People, Planet, Profit. (Because really – that’s what we’re all about!)


We design for the future – to ensure that we have one.




Since it’s incorporation in April 2009, Ethical Profiling has amassed an extensive list of clients, most of whom are recognized as leaders in their respective fields of business.

I have been working closely with Kemp and Ethical Profiling for the past year, and have been very happy with the products and the service. Kemp is quick to respond, meets our tight deadlines, and is great with sourcing unique promotional items to meet our needs. It has been great working with Kemp.

Sourcing Eco-Conscious Sustainable Products

We work with all of the major suppliers of Environmentally Friendly Promotional Products. Many of the ‘major’ promo products suppliers have started on the route to developing and supplying sustainable promotional items. Were on their speed-dial when they’re developing new items and we’ve got access to their existing items at preferred prices.

Custom imprinted and branded promotional products (ex: Environmentally Friendly Imprinted lanyards)

We can brand almost any existing or new promotional product in a variety of different ways. Send us your logo or allow us to help you develop the mark you are looking for and we’ll help you brand your program. We’ll work with you to determine if you want your mark to POP or be more subdued and we’ll recommend the best way for achieving this.

Trade Show Giveaways & Client and Employee Gifts

It’s nice to be able to thank someone for visiting you at your tradeshow booth with an environmentally friendly tradeshow giveaway. It’s also nice to be remembered when your customer or better yet future client is looking at the piece you gave them somewhere in the future. What isn’t nice is a bunch of junk that ends up in the landfill. That’s why we work with you to produce high visible impact but low environmental impact promotional products and tradeshow giveaways to thank your customers with.

Designing and Producing Custom Eco-Conscious Sustainable Products

Yes… it’s true, what you are looking for may not yet exist - this is what really invigorates us. We have an in-house team of fashion designers and industrial designers who will help you develop new eco-conscious promotional products. We’ll source the raw material required, help you design your custom product, then work with our third party audited manufacturing partners both overseas and domestically to make your product a reality.

Corporate Custom Apparel

We maintain stock in a number of eco-conscious fabrics and environmentally friendly textiles in a wide a variety of colors. When we get an order, we pull the fabric in the colors that we need, and cut and sew the garment. Custom manufacturing takes between three to five weeks. Please allow more time if we need to engineer a new fabric for you or produce a fabric in a specific pantone colour. We can provide any kind of decoration; embroidery, silk-screening, sublimation, heat transfer, and custom notions (neck labels, side-tabs, zipper-pulls, etcetera). We offer virtual samples that show the item(s) that you have chosen, in the colorway that you are interested in, with the logo/artwork in any location (sample 1 (PDF 6 MB ) & sample 2 (PDF 6 MB)). We frequently prepare virtual sample presentations with several different merchandised options.
