Ales Grey is a brand that focuses on sustainability in its supply chain and manufacturing processes. We have evaluated the brand based on our “Planet”, “People”, and “Animals” ratings to assess its environmental policies, workers’ rights, and animal welfare practices.

Planet Rating

When evaluating the brand’s sustainability efforts, we found that Ales Grey is making progress but still has room for improvement. It uses a medium proportion of lower-impact materials, including recycled materials, which helps reduce its environmental footprint. Additionally, it uses low-impact materials that limit the use of chemicals, water, and wastewater in its supply chain.

However, there is no evidence that Ales Grey minimizes the use of solvent-based chemicals, which can be harmful to both workers and the environment, during the production process. This is an area where the brand can further improve its sustainability practices.

On a positive note, Ales Grey uses biodegradable packaging, which is a commendable effort to reduce waste and contribute to a circular economy.

People Rating

Ales Grey’s approach to workers’ rights and fair labor practices is a crucial aspect of our evaluation. We found that the brand is taking steps in the right direction but still has work to do. The final production stage of Ales Grey products takes place in Italy, which is considered a medium-risk country for labor abuse. This means that there is a potential risk of workers facing exploitation or unfair treatment.

Furthermore, we found no evidence that Ales Grey audits its suppliers or has a comprehensive Code of Conduct in place. These measures are necessary to ensure that workers are treated ethically and that labor standards are upheld throughout the supply chain.

One area where Ales Grey could make improvements is ensuring that workers in its supply chain are paid living wages. This is an essential factor in promoting fair labor practices and supporting the well-being of workers.

Animals Rating

When it comes to animal welfare, Ales Grey has performed well, earning a rating of “Good”. The brand does not appear to use animal-derived materials in its products, which is commendable. However, it does not explicitly claim to be a vegan brand.

While Ales Grey’s commitment to not using animal-derived materials is positive, we encourage the brand to consider pursuing official vegan certification or providing clearer communication regarding its stance on animal products. This would further enhance its animal welfare practices and appeal to conscious consumers.

Overall Rating

Based on all publicly available information we’ve reviewed, we rate Ales Grey “It’s a Start” overall. The brand shows promising efforts in its sustainability practices, but there are areas where it can further improve, particularly in minimizing the use of harmful chemicals, ensuring fair labor practices, and providing clearer communication about its animal welfare policies.

As the brand continues to evolve and make progress in these areas, it has the potential to achieve higher sustainability ratings and become a leader in the fashion industry’s journey towards a more sustainable future.
