WE-AR's environment rating is 'good'. It uses a medium proportion of eco-friendly materials including Tencel. It reuses some of its offcuts to minimise textile waste. It implements water reduction initiatives in the supply chain. Its use of eco-friendly materials limits the amount of chemicals and wastewater used in production.

Its labour rating is 'it's a start'. It has a Code of Conduct that covers all of the ILO Four Fundamental Freedoms principles. It sources its final stage of production from countries with extreme risk of labour abuse . There is no evidence it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain. It traces most of its supply chain. It visits its suppliers but does not state how often.

Its animal rating is 'not good enough'. It uses leather, wool and fur. It does not use down, exotic animal skin or angora.

WE-AR is rated 'It's a start' overall.
