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 Scotch & Soda “Not Good Enough”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It uses some lower-impact materials including organic cotton.
  • There’s no evidence it’s taken any action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in its supply chain.
  • There’s no evidence it’s taking meaningful action to reduce water use.
  • There’s no evidence it’s taking actions to protect biodiversity in its supply chain.

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. Unfortunately, Scotch & Soda does not publish sufficient information. You have a right to know how the products you buy affect the issues you care about.

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 Scotch & Soda “Not Good Enough”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • There’s no evidence it has an animal welfare policy.
  • It appears to use wool, exotic animal hair, and silk.
  • It uses some recycled leather in its leather products.
  • It doesn’t appear to use down, fur, angora, or exotic animal skin.
  • There’s no evidence it traces any animal-derived materials to the first production stage.

Based on all publicly available information we’ve reviewed, we rate Scotch & Soda “We Avoid” overall.
