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

  • It uses a high proportion of lower-impact materials including upcycled materials.
  • It uses low impact materials that help limit the chemicals, water, and wastewater in its supply chain.
  • It manufactures its products closer to home to reduce the climate impact of long-distance shipping.
  • There’s no evidence it takes action to minimise its packaging, which is a driver of plastic waste.

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

  • Its final production stage happens in France, a medium risk country for labour abuse.
  • It traces most of its supply chain.
  • It audits some of its supply chain including most of the final and second stages of production.
  • 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 RESAP Paris “Good”. It doesn’t appear to use animal-derived materials but doesn’t claim to be a vegan brand.

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