We are Monki

We aim to be kind to the world and empower the young women in it.

From the very beginning, this aim has inspired us to be our best selves, every day. At Monki, we believe sustainability and empowerment go hand-in-hand.

Why? Here's the thing. Sustainable consumption and production means making sure that the people working with us are paid fair wages, that they have a safe working environment and a healthy workload. It means making sure that all living beings will have a liveable planet, even in the future. This very much affects women and therefore, we're making sure we're taking steps to keep creating change here. Not just when it comes to production, but also through local initiatives that aim to improve the situation for young women all around the world.

2020 and beyond

2020 has us reflecting on how we're living up to our aim. How we can take a clear position on being kind and being empowering. Because we want to make a real difference in the real world. Which is why we're aligning how we can 'be kind to the world' and 'be empowering' with two of the United Nation's Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs):
 
SDG 5 — Gender equality
SDG 12 — Sustainable consumption and production

SDGs in a nutshell

Curious about what the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals are? Think of the SDGs as a global action plan. 17 goals that focus on ending poverty, protecting the planet and improving the lives of everyone. In 2015, all UN Member states adopted these goals and set out a 15-year plan to achieve them by 2030. And 2020 sees a decade of countries, companies and people ramping up action to make sure we can achieve these, together, by 2030. Read more about the UN SDGs.

So, who's in charge?

While our mission is Monki wide, we have a core group in place to ensure we stay on track. This team is comprised of individuals from each department within Monki. There are so many people behind the scenes and many amazing co-labs and partnerships that go into making this happen.
