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

  • It uses a medium proportion of lower-impact materials including recycled materials.
  • It uses low impact materials that help limit the chemicals, water, and wastewater in its supply chain.
  • It offers clothing recycling to consumers to help address end-of-life textile waste.
  • It takes meaningful action to reduce emissions from transportation and distribution.

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 NUDEA “It's a Start”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It partly traces its supply chain including the final and some of the second production stages.
  • It claims it has a Code of Conduct but does not publicly disclose it.
  • It audits some of its supply chain including most of the final and second stages of production.
  • It claims it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain but doesn't define a living wage.

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 NUDEA “It's a Start”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • There’s no evidence it has an animal welfare policy.
  • It appears to use exotic animal hair, and silk.
  • It doesn’t appear to use leather, wool, down, fur, angora, or exotic animal skin.

Based on all publicly available information we’ve reviewed, we rate NUDEA “Good” overall.
