ASOS's environment rating is 'not good enough'. It uses some eco-friendly materials including organic cotton. There is no evidence it minimises textile waste when manufacturing its products. It has set an intensity target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions generated from its own operations and supply chain but there is no evidence it has set an absolute target. There is no evidence it implements water reduction initiatives in most of its supply chain.

Its labour rating is 'not good enough'. Almost none of its supply chain is certified by labour standards which ensure worker health and safety, living wages or other labour rights. It received a score of 41-50% in the Fashion Transparency Index. It likely publishes information about its supplier policies, audits and remediation processes. It publishes a detailed list of suppliers in the final stage of production and some information about the second stage of production. It may be publishing some information about forced labour, gender equality or freedom of association. There is no evidence it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain. It discloses some policies to protect suppliers and workers in its supply chain from the impacts of COVID-19.

Its animal rating is 'it's a start'. It has a formal animal welfare policy aligned with Five Freedoms. It uses leather. It states that it sources wool from non-mulesed sheep. It does not use fur, down, angora, exotic animal hair or exotic animal skin. There is no evidence it traces any animal products to the first stage of production.
