CREDIBILITY AND INDEPENDENCE – WHERE DO WE GET THE DATA FROM?
 
Good Shopping was created by independent experts from the Buy Responsibly Foundation. During the screening of the brands, we used data available in the public space: websites, reports published by companies, CSR reports, reports of independent non-governmental organizations, certificates’ standards.The brands included in the Good Shopping guide have been vetted by us in two basic categories: environmental impact and social responsibility.
 
  • The first category concerns environmental impact of (1) raw materials used, (2) production technology, (3) environmental management, (4) packaging used and (5) carbon footprint.
  • The social responsibility category covers three areas: (1) labour standards throughout the supply chain, (2) social economy and (3) transparency.
 
In each subcategory, brands are awarded a certain number of points which are then added up to get two final grades: in the area of environmental impact and social responsibility. In each of the areas a maximum of 7 points can be obtained.
 

Scoring is specified in detail in the regulations available HERE.
