How sustainable is Save the Duck?

This screening has been done by Fairify on October 26th 2020

Save the Duck is an Italian outerwear brand founded in 2012. The brand focuses heavily on sustainability, is a B Corp, and donates 1 percent of its annual revenues to charity initiatives that protect animals, people and the environment.

Promoting sustainability through transparency

The company scores high in terms of transparency. Its website offers an annual sustainability report as well as an overview of all suppliers. Concerning its garments, 69% are made with STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® and 40% with Bluesign® certified materials. On top of that, the brand is actively involved in recycling materials and making packaging more sustainable. Although it’s transparent about scope 1 and 2, Save the Duck hasn’t fully mapped its scope 3 carbon emissions yet. It indicates that it’s actively measuring these emissions in the supply chain and commits to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030 together with the other 500+ B Corp companies.

In need of better social insurance and working hours

Save the Duck tries to uphold workers’ rights throughout its supply chain by following Amfori BSCI policies, but there’s still room for improvement. The results from the sustainability report show that long working hours and lack of social insurance are areas that need to be looked at.

Vegan and sustainable

The brand is completely animal-free and is therefore certified as Peta Approved Vegan. Considering the work that is being put in as we speak and its ambitions for the future, we have to conclude that Save the Duck is doing great!
