Teva is owned by Deckers.

Its environment rating is 'it's a start'. It uses some eco-friendly materials including recycled materials. It has set a science-based target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions generated from its own operations and supply chain and it is on track to meet its target. It has eliminated some hazardous chemicals from its supply chain. There is no evidence it minimises textile waste when manufacturing its products.

Its labour rating is 'it's a start'. None of its supply chain is certified by labour standards which ensure worker health and safety, living wages or other labour rights. It received a score of 51-60% in the 2022 Fashion Transparency Index. It implements practices to support diversity and inclusion in its direct operations but not its supply chain. There is no evidence it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain. It discloses policies to protect workers in its supply chain from the impacts of COVID-19 but not suppliers.

Its animal rating is 'it's a start'. It has a formal animal welfare policy aligned with Five Freedoms with few clear mechanisms to implement. It uses leather. It states that it sources wool from non-mulesed sheep. It does not use angora, fur, down or exotic animal skin. There is no evidence it traces any animal products to the first stage of production.

Teva is rated 'It's a start' overall.
