Elkline's environment rating is 'good'. It uses a medium proportion of eco-friendly materials including Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) cotton. It uses low impact non-toxic dyes in most of its products. There is no evidence it is taking specific steps to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. However its use of eco-friendly materials reduces its climate impact and limits the amount of chemicals, water and wastewater used in production.

Its labour rating is 'good'. It has a Code of Conduct that covers some of the ILO Four Fundamental Freedoms principles. It sources its final stage of production from countries with extreme risk of labour abuse. It is unclear whether it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain. It traces most of its supply chain.

Its animal rating is 'it's a start'. It does not use fur, leather, down, exotic animal skin or angora. It uses wool and exotic animal hair.

Elkline is rated 'Good' overall.
