The Punch Community
We are a magnetic Community of Brands, Creators and Consumers committed to environmental and social change. We encourage economic players to engage in responsible practices, whilst inspiring consumers to explore and consume better.
The Punch Method
The Punch encourages brands to continue practicing or to take a minimum of five responsible commitments as part of the following categories: Plan – Upgrade – Neutralize – Conserve – Honor.
Checking commitments made by members
We are built on the principle of trust and transparency creating a clear channel of communication where both sides work together to do the best they can. We listen to our consumers to understand their vision of our members, taking into consideration if there is any critics to improve our member’s performance. We partner with sustainability experts to run quality reports and measurements.
Members that don’t follow their commitments
We are built on the principle of trust and transparency. Members that break this code and don’t follow their commitments will be suspended from our channels until the commitment is reestablished. Once the issue is fixed, the actions the brand took are shared with the community, so taking the step into the right direction is again celebrated.
