What makes Borderfields an ethical brand?

Does Borderfields have an Environmental Report?

Borderfields has an FAQ page which discusses the benefits of its oil. This includes local sourcing and manufacturing, and not using genetically modified ingredients. However, Borderfields does not mention the environment or share any sustainability targets.

Because of this, Borderfields receives a middle rating for our Environmental Report category and a top rating for our Genetic Modification category.
