About us

We want to make a sustainable lifestyle simpler and more accessible

We are Jord, a team that wants to change the way people spend their money by making sustainability easier than ever. Our idea for Jord was born through our own struggles in living a sustainable life. With the looming climate crisis, we wanted to make a change, but found the process of identifying genuinely sustainable brands difficult and time-consuming. Nevertheless, we knew sustainable brands and products existed, but realised there was no way for consumers to discover them in one centralised place. We created Jord to solve this problem.

Our Philosophy

Every store in our network is making an active effort to reduce their environmental impact, carrying out conscious business practices throughout their operations. To determine which stores get into the network, we have created our own sustainability criteria that gather key performance indicators from various operational categories, providing a simple overview of a company's environmental impact.

We also recognise that no business is 'fully sustainable', as all products require energy and resource inputs. What we can ensure however, is that every brand listed on our platform has a lower environmental impact relative to its 'traditional' counterparts.
Additionally, we understand that every business is at a different point in their sustainability transition, therefore our network includes a diverse range of companies, all at different stages in their journey (although every brand must still reach a certain baseline in our criteria). Through this, we are able to provide a wide selection of sustainable alternatives and aim to grow the number of sustainable brands, driven by collective learnings from network stores, our ratings, and traffic from Jord shoppers.
