Aigle is a French brand that’s mainly known for its footwear. The brand is owned by Maus Freres, a Swiss holding company with a diverse portfolio that owns fashion brands like Gant and Lacoste, but also a group of restaurants, department stores and shopping centers in Switzerland. Aigle publishes a sustainability report, but it’s only available in French. This is not up to our transparency standards, since the company conducts business outside of France.
When a brand doesn’t offer any information, there are several risks you take as a consumer. For example, the climate impact of that particular brand or product can be much higher compared to its industry peers. The company might use certain harmful chemicals or there might be animals or humans harmed for the manufacturing of the product. For these reasons we believe that you should be aware of how products are produced and how a company as a whole operates in regard to our pillars. When there’s no transparency, you are at risk of supporting some or more of the previously mentioned harmful conditions.
