Hunkemöller is owned by The Carlyle Group.

Its environment rating is 'not good enough'. It uses few eco-friendly materials. There is no evidence it implements water reduction initiatives in most of its supply chain. There is no evidence it has a greenhouse gas emissions reduction target covering its supply chain. There is no evidence it has a policy to minimise the impacts of microplastics.

Its labour rating is 'it's a start'. It has a Code of Conduct that covers all of the ILO Four Fundamental Freedoms principles. It sources its final stage of production from countries with extreme risk of labour abuse. It has a project to improve wages in its supply chain, however there is no evidence it ensures payment of a living wage in most of its supply chain. It audits all of the final stage of production.

Its animal rating is 'good'. It does not use fur, leather, wool, exotic animal skin or exotic animal hair. It uses silk.
