Does AEG have an Environmental Report?

Electrolux has a recent Sustainability Report which enables AEG to be awarded with a top score for our Environmental Report category.

The report contains evidence of progress, as well as targets for 2025 such as a reduction in CO2 emissions, water and energy.

Why does AEG have a middle rating for Human Rights? 

Within its Code of Conduct, Electrolux has a Human Rights section. However, the information is vague and lacks specific details about working hours or 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 Dishwashers sector is the outcome of an evaluation of multiple ethical criteria.

As it currently has a bottom score in the Ethical Dishwashers sector, The Good Shopping Guide recommends that AEG gets in touch to apply for Ethical Accreditation. After receiving its application, The Good Shopping Guide will offer AEG some tailored advice on how it can raise its score on the Dishwashers Ethical Ratings Table.
