Lacoste's environment rating is 'very poor'. It does not publish sufficient relevant information about its environmental policies to give a higher rating. As a shopper you have the right to know how its production practices impact on the environment.
Its labour rating is 'not good enough'. None of its supply chain is certified by labour standards which ensure worker health and safety, living wages or other labour rights. It received a score of 21-30% in the Fashion Transparency Index. It likely publishes information about its supplier policies, audits and remediation processes. It does not publish a comprehensive list of suppliers or information about forced labour, gender equality or freedom of association. There is no evidence it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain. It does not disclose any policies or safeguards to protect suppliers and workers in its supply chain from the impacts of COVID-19.
Its animal rating is 'not good enough'. There is no evidence it has a policy to minimise the suffering of animals. It uses leather, wool, down, exotic animal hair and silk. It does not use fur, exotic animal skin or angora. There is no evidence it traces any animal products to the first stage of production.
Lacoste is rated 'We avoid' overall.
