Is AEG an ethical cooker brand?

Owned by Electrolux AB, AEG is a below-benchmark score and as a result, cannot yet be classed as an ethical cooker brand.

Even though it has a low rating, we still encourage AEG to apply for Ethical Accreditation. The Good Shopping Guide would provide it with an assessment and some advice on how to become one of the best brands within the Ethical Cookers sector.

Are you interested in finding out how AEG compares to other brands within the Ethical Cookers sector? Have a look at the Cookers Ethical Ratings Table. The Good Shopping Guide’s Ratings Table can help you to find out more about the criteria that our top-rated brands have met to reach our minimum Ethical Benchmark.

The Good Shopping Guide encourages all brands to follow in the footsteps of our top-rated brands and begin introducing more sustainable policies.

Why does AEG receive a top score for its Environmental Report?

AEG’s parent company Electrolux has a recent Sustainability Report. Within the report, there is evidence of progress and several targets for 2025. These targets include CO2 emissions, water and energy.

Why does AEG receive a middle rating for its Code of Conduct?

Within its Code of Conduct, Electrolux has a Human Rights section. However, the information included is vague and lacks specific detail on working hours or minimum age restrictions for child labour.

What can AEG do to improve its score? 

The below-benchmark score that AEG receives within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Cookers sector is the outcome of a calculation of a variety of ethical criteria.

As it currently has a low score on the Cookers Ethical Ratings Table, we recommend that AEG get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. Once we receive its application, The Good Shopping Guide would be able to offer AEG some tips on how to work on its bottom scores. After following our advice, AEG could see itself becoming one of our best cooker brands.

Did you know that your Cooker brand may benefit from Ethical Accreditation? Our accredited brands proudly display our Ethical Mark, showcasing to consumers that its products are ethical purchases to make.

The Good Shopping Guide’s Ratings Tables can show you which other brands within the Ethical Cookers sector have been awarded our ethics and sustainability certification.
