Environmental Impact: Rated Great

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. Here we rate ecuvo “Great”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It uses a medium proportion of lower-impact materials including recycled materials.
  • It uses low impact materials that help limit the chemicals, water, and wastewater in its supply chain.
  • It uses low-waste cutting techniques to maximise fabric use.
  • To reduce its climate impacts, it uses renewable energy in its supply chain.
  • To minimise plastic waste, it uses packaging that consumers can repurpose and reuse.

Workers Rights: Rated Not Good Enough

Workers’ rights are central to our “People” rating, which assess brands’ policies and practices on everything from child labour to living wages and gender equality. Here we rate ecuvo “Not Good Enough”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • Its final production stage happens in Japan, a medium risk country for labour abuse.
  • There’s no evidence it has a Code of Conduct.
  • It partly traces its supply chain including the final and some of the second production stages.
  • There’s no evidence it ensures workers are paid living wages in its supply chain.

Animal Welfare: Rated Good

Brands’ animal welfare policies and, where applicable, how well they trace their animal-derived products are the focus of our “Animals” rating. Here we rate ecuvo “Good”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It uses recycled wool in all of its wool products.
  • It doesn’t appear to use leather, down, fur, angora, exotic animal skin, or exotic animal hair.

Overall Rating: Rated Good

Based on all publicly available information we’ve reviewed, we rate ecuvo “Good” overall.

Ecuvo is a brand that has made significant strides in reducing its environmental impact by using lower-impact materials, implementing low-waste cutting techniques, and utilizing renewable energy in its supply chain. These efforts have earned it a “Great” rating in our “Planet” category.

However, when it comes to workers’ rights, ecuvo falls short of expectations. The lack of a Code of Conduct and failure to ensure living wages for workers in its supply chain have led to a “Not Good Enough” rating in our “People” category.

On the bright side, ecuvo has been rated “Good” in our “Animals” category for its animal welfare policies, including the use of recycled wool in its products and the absence of certain animal-derived materials.

Overall, ecuvo has received a “Good” rating from us after considering its environmental impact, workers’ rights, and animal welfare practices. While there is room for improvement in certain areas, ecuvo’s commitment to sustainability is commendable.
