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 Klättermusen “Good”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It uses a medium proportion of lower-impact materials including recycled materials.
  • It uses lower-impact materials that help limit the chemicals, water, and wastewater in its Supply Chain.
  • It uses renewable energy in its direct operations (such as stores or offices) but not in its supply chain.
  • To minimise plastic waste, it uses packaging that consumers can repurpose and reuse.

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 Klättermusen “Not Good Enough”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It does not disclose where its Final Stage of Production occurs.
  • It traces most of its supply chain.
  • It claims it has a Code of Conduct but does not publicly disclose it.
  • There’s no evidence it ensures workers are paid living wages in its supply chain.

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 Klättermusen “Good”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • There’s no evidence it has an animal welfare policy.
  • It appears to use silk.
  • Responsible Down Standard certifies the down it uses.
  • It doesn’t appear to use leather, fur, angora, exotic animal skin, or exotic animal hair.

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