Here's a fact - the fashion industry accounts for about 10% of the total global carbon emissions.

Tearfund's Ethical Fashion Guide for 2021 ranks clothing companies in accordance with their stance on sustainability and how much effort goes into protecting their workers, and the planet.

In the report, brands are rated from A+ to F judging by the sustainability measure they have in place. 

The report describes itself as “a practical tool you can use to demand change by supporting brands that are investing in ethical and sustainable practices in their supply chains.”

Many well-loved brands are feature in the guide, so we've pulled out a few that you may recognise.

  • AS Colour - A
  • Rodd & Gunn - A
  • Kathmandu - A
  • Puma - A
  • Country Road - A
  • Vans - A
  • New Balance - B
  • ASOS - B
  • Kmart - B
  • Cotton On - B
  • Calvin Klein: B
  • Peter Alexander - C
  • Ralph Lauren - C
  • Boohoo - D

Check out the full list below to see where your fave brands stack up.

It is worth noting that participating in the yearly report is entirely optional, and when companies choose not to engage, Tearfund goes ahead with the survey using information they can publicly find. 

All companies that received an F rating chose to not participate.
