Our ratings are based on a scale from 1 (We avoid) to 5 (Great) How we rate


Chanel's environment rating is 'not good enough'. It uses few eco-friendly materials. It has set a science-based target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions generated from its own operations and supply chain and it is on track to meet its target. There is no evidence it has taken meaningful action to reduce or eliminate hazardous chemicals. There is no evidence it minimises textile waste in its supply chain.

Its labour rating is 'not good enough'. Most of its final stage of production is undertaken in the European Union, a low/medium risk region for labour abuse. It received a score of 11-20% in the 2021 Fashion Transparency Index. There is no evidence it implements practices to support diversity and inclusion in its supply chain. There is no evidence it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain. It does not disclose adequate policies or safeguards to protect suppliers and workers in its supply chain from the impacts of COVID-19.

Its animal rating is 'not good enough'. There is no evidence it has a policy to minimise the suffering of animals. It uses leather, wool, exotic animal hair and silk. It does not use fur, exotic animal skin or angora. There is no evidence it traces any animal product to the first stage of production.

Chanel is rated 'Not good enough' overall.
