Amour Vert is a brand that focuses on sustainability and environmental responsibility. In terms of its environmental impact, Amour Vert has received a rating of “It’s a Start” in our “Planet” evaluation. This rating is based on several factors, including the use of lower-impact materials such as organic cotton and the implementation of measures to limit the chemicals, water, and wastewater in its supply chain. Additionally, Amour Vert involves the resale of second-hand products, although there is no evidence of further action taken to address textile waste in its supply chain. The brand also uses some recycled packaging, further reducing its environmental footprint.
When it comes to workers’ rights, Amour Vert falls under the “Not Good Enough” rating in our “People” evaluation. While most of its final production stage occurs in the USA, a country with a medium risk for labor abuse, the brand only partially traces its supply chain, including all of the final production stage. There is also no evidence of a Code of Conduct in place, and no assurances that workers are paid living wages throughout the supply chain. Improving these aspects would greatly enhance the brand’s commitment to workers’ rights and ethical practices.
In terms of animal welfare, Amour Vert has received a rating of “Good” in our “Animals” evaluation. Although the brand appears to use silk, it has a policy in place to source wool from non-mulesed sheep. However, there is no provided evidence to verify the brand’s claims. On a positive note, Amour Vert does not appear to use materials such as leather, down, fur, angora, exotic animal skin, or exotic animal hair, indicating its adherence to animal welfare standards.
Based on our thorough review of all publicly available information, we rate Amour Vert as “Good” overall. While there are areas where the brand can improve in terms of workers’ rights and providing evidence to support its claims about animal welfare, Amour Vert shows a commitment to using lower-impact materials and implementing recycling practices. By addressing these areas of concern, Amour Vert can further solidify its position as a leading sustainable fashion brand.
