Environmental Policies

Our “Planet” rating evaluates brands based on the environmental policies in their supply chains, from carbon emissions and wastewater to business models and product circularity. We rate CAES as “Good”.

There are several factors that influence the brand’s score in this category. CAES uses a medium proportion of lower-impact materials, such as organic cotton, in its products. This helps in reducing the environmental impact of its supply chain. Additionally, the brand uses low-impact materials that help limit the chemicals, water, and wastewater in its production process. To further minimize waste, CAES also limits its production runs.

Furthermore, CAES is committed to sustainability in its packaging practices. The brand uses Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified packaging, which reflects its dedication to responsible sourcing of materials.

Workers’ Rights

Our “People” rating focuses on brands’ policies and practices concerning workers’ rights, including issues such as child labor, living wages, and gender equality. CAES is rated as “It’s a Start” in this category.

When assessing CAES in terms of workers’ rights, several factors come into play. The final production stage of CAES products happens in countries like Portugal and Italy, which are considered medium-risk countries for labor abuse. While the brand’s Code of Conduct covers some principles of the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Four Fundamental Freedoms, there is no evidence that CAES ensures workers are paid living wages in its supply chain.

However, it is worth noting that CAES partly traces its supply chain, including all of the final production stage. This demonstrates the brand’s commitment to transparency and accountability in its sourcing practices.

Animal Welfare

Our “Animals” rating focuses on brands’ animal welfare policies and their efforts to trace animal-derived products. CAES is rated as “Good” in this category.

When evaluating CAES in terms of animal welfare, it is observed that the brand appears to use exotic animal hair in some of its products. However, it states that it sources wool from non-mulesed sheep, showing a commitment to ethical sourcing practices. Additionally, CAES does not appear to use leather, down, fur, angora, or exotic animal skin in its products.

Overall Rating

Based on all publicly available information reviewed, CAES receives a rating of “Good” overall. The brand demonstrates a commitment to sustainability through its environmental policies, workers’ rights practices, and animal welfare standards. While there is room for improvement, CAES has taken positive steps towards creating a more sustainable and ethical brand.
