Oy's environment rating is 'great'. It uses a high proportion of eco-friendly materials. It manufactures locally to reduce its carbon footprint. Its use of eco-friendly materials limits the amount of chemicals, water and wastewater used in production.

Its labour rating is 'it's a start'. 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 traces most of its supply chain. There is no evidence it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain
