Our History

  • Corethics began thanks to a Start-up Grant from the University of Newcastle where Founding Director, Melissa McCabe pitched her idea for an ethical consultancy for the tourism industry.
  • With a passion for Indonesia, in 2017, Melissa undertook 1-year Research Project [ Textiles Project: Bali ] studying the impacts of mass tourism on life in Bali, Lombok, and Sumbawa. The focus of the study was water depletion and pollution, and land rights.
  •  Field research was conducted using a broad scope of subjects from small business owners, tourists, to local Not-for-Profit Organisations (NFP/NGO). These findings uncovered several opportunities to improve water quality and quantity, address climate change, and create thriving communities. Corethics embodies these changes.
  • We believe our value lies in providing a platform to encourage and facilitate the coming together of Civil Society, Government, and Business to address issues related to mass tourism.
