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 RVDK “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 manufacturers 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 RVDK “Not Good Enough”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • Most of its final production stage happens in the Netherlands, a low risk country for labour abuse.
  • There’s no evidence it has a Code of Conduct.
  • It traces most of its supply chain.
  • 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 RVDK “Good”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It appears to use horn.
  • It uses recycled leather in all of its leather products.
  • It uses recycled wool in all of its wool products.
  • It doesn’t appear to use down, fur, angora, exotic animal skin, or exotic animal hair.

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