Ethletic's environment rating is 'it's a start'. It uses a high proportion of eco-friendly materials including organic cotton. There is no evidence it minimises textile waste. 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'. There is no evidence it has a Code of Conduct but it has a formal statement covering workers rights. It sources its final stage of production from countries with extreme risk of labour abuse. It traces all of its supply chain. It ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain but does not specify what percentage. It audits most of its supply chain.

Its animal rating is 'great'. It is listed by PETA as vegan.

Ethletic is rated 'Good' overall.
