Our Story
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 limited 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.
"through empathy, mutual understanding, and respect we can transform society and its environment"
