About LaBante

LaBante is a brand that prioritizes sustainability in its supply chain. Our rating system evaluates brands based on their environmental policies, and LaBante has been rated as “It’s a Start” in terms of its efforts towards sustainability.

Environmental Policies

LaBante has made significant progress in using lower-impact materials, including recycled materials, in its products. This is a positive step towards reducing its carbon emissions and minimizing its impact on the environment. However, there is currently no evidence to suggest that LaBante is taking further action to reduce its energy use or greenhouse gas emissions.

Another area where LaBante can improve its sustainability practices is in waste reduction. There is no evidence to suggest that the brand has implemented measures to minimize waste in its supply chain. By implementing effective waste management strategies, LaBante can further reduce its environmental impact and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Workers’ Rights and Ethical Practices

At LaBante, workers’ rights are central to our evaluation of the brand’s practices. Unfortunately, LaBante has been rated as “Not Good Enough” in this area due to some concerning factors. The brand sources its final stage of production from countries with extreme risks of labor abuse. While it is commendable that LaBante’s final production stage is certified by Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA) Best Practice Guidance, there is still room for improvement.

While LaBante traces some parts of its supply chain, there is no evidence to suggest that the brand ensures workers are paid living wages throughout its supply chain. Ensuring fair wages and safe working conditions for all workers is essential for a brand to be truly ethical and sustainable.

Animal Welfare

LaBante’s focus on animal welfare is commendable, and the brand has been rated as “Great” in this category. PETA has listed LaBante as a vegan brand, indicating that it does not use any animal-derived products in its products.

Tracing animal-derived products in the supply chain is also an important factor in assessing a brand’s animal welfare policies. While there is no information available regarding this aspect of LaBante’s practices, its vegan certification from PETA demonstrates a commitment to cruelty-free products.

Overall Rating

Based on all the publicly available information we have reviewed, we rate LaBante as “Good” overall in terms of sustainability. The brand has taken steps to use lower-impact materials and is recognized for its vegan products. However, there is still room for improvement in areas such as energy use, waste reduction, and workers’ rights.

By continuing to prioritize sustainability and taking further action to address these areas, LaBante can enhance its overall sustainability rating and become a leading brand in the quest for a more environmentally friendly and ethically conscious fashion industry.
