Losano is a brand that is making strides in sustainability. With a focus on environmental policies and worker’s rights, Losano has earned a “Good” rating in our “Planet” category. This rating is based on several factors that contribute to the brand’s positive impact on the environment.
Losano is committed to using lower-impact materials, including recycled materials. This helps to reduce the carbon emissions and water usage associated with the production process. By using low-impact materials, Losano is also limiting the amount of chemicals, water, and wastewater that are present in its supply chain.
Additionally, Losano is conscious of its packaging choices and has made the decision to use recycled packaging. This not only reduces waste but also sets a positive example for other brands in the industry.
In an effort to reduce the climate impact of long-distance shipping, Losano manufactures its products closer to home. By doing so, the brand is minimizing the carbon emissions that would be produced by transporting products over long distances.
While Losano has made great strides in sustainability, there is room for improvement. There is currently no evidence that the brand is minimizing textile waste in its supply chain. However, Losano’s commitment to using recycled materials and reducing carbon emissions is a step in the right direction.
Worker’s rights are a key focus in our evaluation of brands. In the case of Losano, we have rated the brand as “It’s a Start” in our “People” category. While there is room for improvement, Losano has taken steps to ensure that workers are treated fairly in its supply chain.
Losano’s final production stage takes place in the USA. While the USA is considered a medium risk country for labor abuse, Losano’s decision to manufacture in the country shows a commitment to ensuring that workers are protected under labor laws that are more stringent than in other countries with higher labor abuse risks.
While the brand claims to visit some of its supply chain, it does not specify the percentage. However, the fact that Losano is taking steps to visit its suppliers shows a commitment to transparency and accountability.
One area where Losano could improve is in the implementation of a Code of Conduct. Currently, there is no evidence that the brand has a Code of Conduct in place to ensure that all suppliers and partners adhere to ethical labor practices.
Finally, there is no evidence that Losano ensures that workers in its supply chain are paid living wages. This is an important aspect of worker’s rights and an area where the brand could make improvements.
Losano’s overall rating is based on its combined environmental and labor scores. Based on the publicly available information that we have reviewed, we rate Losano as “Good” overall.
While there are areas where Losano could make improvements, the brand has taken significant steps towards sustainability and ensuring fair treatment of workers in its supply chain. By using low-impact materials, reducing carbon emissions, and manufacturing closer to home, Losano is setting an example for other brands in the industry.
We hope that Losano continues to prioritize sustainability and worker’s rights and looks forward to seeing further improvements from the brand in the future.
