New Era'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'. There is no evidence it has worker empowerment initiatives such as collective bargaining or rights to make a complaint. It sources its final stage of production from countries with extreme risk of labour abuse. There is no evidence it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain. It audits some of its supply chain but does not specify what percentage. 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 and wool. It does not use fur, exotic animal hair, down, angora, or exotic animal skin. There is no evidence it traces any animal product to the first stage of production.
New Era is rated 'We avoid' overall.
