Smycka Sustainability Rating: Good Start

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 Smycka “Good”. 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 manufactures its products closer to home to reduce the climate impact of long-distance shipping.
  • It uses Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified packaging.

People Rating: It’s a Start

Workers’ rights are central to our “People” rating, which assesses brands’ policies and practices on everything from child labour to living wages and gender equality. Here we rate Smycka “It’s a Start”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • Its final production stage happens in Sweden, a low risk country for labour abuse.
  • It traces most of its supply chain.
  • There’s no evidence it has a Code of Conduct.
  • There’s no evidence it ensures workers are paid living wages in its supply chain.

Animals Rating: Not Applicable

Brands’ animal welfare policies and, where applicable, how well they trace their animal-derived products are the focus of our “Animals” rating. Since Smycka makes products that are generally free of animal-derived materials, we’ve not rated its impact on animals.

Its overall rating is based on its combined environment and labour scores. Based on all publicly available information we’ve reviewed, we rate Smycka “It’s a Start” overall.

Overall, Smycka has made positive steps towards sustainability, using lower-impact materials, manufacturing closer to home, and focusing on workers’ rights. However, there is room for improvement in areas such as worker wages and the implementation of a Code of Conduct. By continuing to make progress in these areas, Smycka can further enhance its sustainability efforts and improve its overall rating in the future.
