Topshop is owned by ASOS.

Its environment rating is 'not good enough'. It uses few eco-friendly materials. There is no evidence it minimises textile waste when manufacturing its products. It has set an intensity target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions generated from its own operations and supply chain but there is no evidence it has set an absolute target. There is no evidence it has a policy to protect biodiversity in its supply chain.

Its labour rating is 'not good enough'. Little of its supply chain is certified by labour standards which ensure worker health and safety, living wages or other labour rights. There is no evidence it implements practices to support diversity and inclusion in its supply chain. There is no evidence it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain. It discloses some policies to protect suppliers and workers in its supply chain from the impacts of COVID-19.

Its animal rating is 'it's a start'. It has a formal animal welfare policy aligned with Five Freedoms but has few clear mechanisms to implement. It uses leather. It has a policy to source wool from non-mulesed sheep but does not provide evidence on how it is implemented. It does not use fur, down, angora, exotic animal hair or exotic animal skin. It traces some animal products to the first stage of production.

Topshop is rated 'Not good enough' overall.
