Iron Roots's environment rating is 'good'. It uses a high proportion of eco-friendly materials including Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) cotton. It manufactures locally to reduce its carbon footprint. There is no evidence it minimises textile waste. Its use of eco-friendly materials limits the amount of chemicals, water and wastewater used in production.

Its labour rating is 'good'. Its final stage of production is undertaken in Portugal, a medium risk country for labour abuse. There is no evidence it has a Code of Conduct but it has a formal statement covering workers rights. 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 'great'. It states that its entire product range is vegan.
