Diemonde is a brand that aims to prioritize sustainability and environmental responsibility in its practices. Unfortunately, its environment rating is currently deemed ‘not good enough’. This rating is given due to the brand’s limited use of eco-friendly materials and the absence of evidence suggesting that it has taken meaningful action to reduce or eliminate hazardous chemicals.
One positive aspect of Diemonde’s approach to sustainability is its production process. The brand adopts a made-to-order model, which helps to minimize textile waste. By only producing items when they are ordered, Diemonde avoids excess inventory and reduces the environmental impact associated with unsold products.
However, the brand’s labor rating is also classified as ‘not good enough’. While the final stage of production takes place in the European Union, a region generally considered to have a low to medium risk of labor abuse, there is no evidence to suggest that Diemonde has implemented a Code of Conduct or ensured payment of a living wage in its supply chain.
An area where Diemonde has made some progress is its animal rating, which is classified as ‘it’s a start’. The brand does not use exotic animal hair, fur, down, angora, or exotic animal skin in its products. Additionally, it has incorporated the use of wool and recycled leather. However, there is no evidence available to confirm whether or not Diemonde has an animal welfare policy in place.
Overall, Diemonde is rated ‘it’s a start’ in terms of its sustainability efforts. While the brand has taken some positive steps towards reducing its environmental impact and ensuring the ethical treatment of animals, there are areas where improvement is needed. The brand could benefit from adopting more eco-friendly materials, implementing a comprehensive Code of Conduct, and conducting audits of its suppliers to ensure compliance with labor and environmental standards.
