Victoria's Secret is owned by L Brands.
Its environment rating is 'not good enough'. It uses few eco-friendly materials. There is no evidence it has a policy to minimise the impacts of microplastics. There is no evidence it minimises textile waste when manufacturing its products. There is no evidence it has set a greenhouse gas emissions reduction target.
Its labour rating is 'not good enough'. 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 21-30% in the 2021 Fashion Transparency Index. There is no evidence it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain. It does not disclose adequate policies or safeguards to protect suppliers and workers in its supply chain from the impacts of COVID-19. It has been linked with sourcing cotton from the Xinjiang region in China at risk of using Uyghur forced labour and has taken insufficient steps to remediate.
This brand makes products that are generally free of animal materials except for silk so it is not applicable to rate its impact on animals. We calculate the overall rating from environment and labour scores only.
