Reformation is a brand that has caught the attention of sustainability enthusiasts around the world. With its focus on environmental policies and commitment to protecting our planet, it has earned a “Good” rating in our “Planet” category.

One of the factors that influenced Reformation’s score is its use of lower-impact materials, such as Tencel Lyocell. By incorporating these materials into its supply chain, Reformation is able to limit the use of chemicals, water, and wastewater. This commitment to sustainability sets the brand apart from others in the industry.

In addition to using low-impact materials, Reformation has also implemented a policy approved by CanopyStyle to prevent deforestation of ancient and endangered forests. This demonstrates the brand’s dedication to preserving our natural resources. By taking this initiative, Reformation is contributing to the protection of our planet and ensuring a sustainable future.

Furthermore, Reformation strives to minimize waste by recycling textile offcuts. This commitment to reducing waste not only helps to reduce the brand’s environmental impact but also sets an example for others in the industry. By recycling these offcuts, Reformation is able to reduce the amount of textile waste that ends up in landfills.

When it comes to evaluating brands, workers’ rights are a crucial aspect that cannot be overlooked. In our “People” rating, Reformation also holds a “Good” rating. This is due to several factors, including the brand’s tracing of most of its supply chain. By tracing its supply chain, Reformation is able to ensure transparency and accountability throughout the production process.

Reformation also has a comprehensive Code of Conduct that covers the International Labour Organization’s Four Fundamental Freedoms principles. By having such a code in place, the brand demonstrates its commitment to fair labor practices and the well-being of its workers.

Additionally, Reformation conducts audits of some of its supply chain, including all of the final production stage. While the brand does not ensure that all workers in its supply chain are paid living wages, it does make efforts to ensure that some workers in the final production stage receive fair compensation.

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Reformation showed its dedication to worker protection by disclosing some policies aimed at safeguarding workers in its supply chain from the virus. This level of transparency and consideration for worker welfare further solidifies Reformation’s “Good” rating in our “People” category.

In our “Animals” category, Reformation also receives a “Good” rating. The brand has a formal policy aligned with the Five Freedoms of animal welfare and has clear implementation mechanisms in place. This means that Reformation has taken the necessary steps to ensure that animal welfare is a priority throughout its supply chain.

While Reformation does use materials such as leather, exotic animal hair, and silk in its products, it does not appear to use down, fur, angora, or exotic animal skin. This shows that the brand is conscious of the ethical implications of using certain animal-derived materials and has made choices that align with its commitment to responsible sourcing.

Furthermore, Reformation traces most of its animal-derived materials back to the first production stage. This level of traceability adds an extra layer of accountability and transparency to the brand’s animal welfare practices.

Based on all the publicly available information we have reviewed, we rate Reformation “Good” overall. Its commitment to sustainability, workers’ rights, and animal welfare sets it apart as a brand that truly values the well-being of our planet and all those who inhabit it.
