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

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 Filippa K “It's a Start”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It uses a medium proportion of lower-impact materials including organic cotton.
  • It has set an absolute target to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions in its supply chain but there is no evidence it is on track to meet its target.
  • It’s eliminated some hazardous chemicals but has not made a commitment to eliminate all hazardous chemicals in manufacturing.
  • To minimise waste, it reuses some of its textile offcuts.

Workers’ rights are central to our “People” rating, which assess brands’ policies and practices on everything from child labour to living wages and gender equality. Here we rate Filippa K “Not Good Enough”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • Most of its final production stage is monitored by the Fair Wear Foundation.
  • There’s no evidence it supports diversity and inclusion in its supply chain.
  • Its Code of Conduct covers ILO Four Fundamental Freedoms principles.
  • There’s no evidence it ensures workers are paid living wages in its supply chain.
  • During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, it did not disclose adequate policies or safeguards to protect workers in its supply chain from the virus.

Brands’ animal welfare policies and, where applicable, how well they trace their animal-derived products are the focus of our “Animals” rating. Here we rate Filippa K “Not Good Enough”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It’s published a general statement about minimising animal suffering but not a formal animal welfare policy.
  • It appears to use leather, shearling, exotic animal hair, and silk.
  • It uses recycled wool in some of its wool products.
  • Responsible Down Standard certifies the down it uses.
  • It doesn’t appear to use fur, angora, or exotic animal skin.
  • It traces some animal-derived materials to the first production stage.

Based on all publicly available information we’ve reviewed, we rate Filippa K “It's a Start” overall.
