Is Candy an ethical cooker brand?

Candy, an Italian domestic appliance manufacturer owned by Haier Group Corporation is a below-benchmark brand in The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Cookers sector. As it has a low score, Candy cannot yet be classed as an ethical cooker brand.

Despite its low rating, we still encourage Candy to apply for Ethical Accreditation. The Good Shopping Guide would offer Candy an assessment and some advice on how to become one of our top-rated brands.

Do you want to see how Candy compares to other brands within the Ethical Cookers sector? Visit 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 introduce more sustainable policies.

What does Candy have a high score for?

Due to its lack of negative records, Candy receives a top score for our Nuclear Power, Armaments and Fossil Fuels ethical research categories.

Why does Candy receive a middle rating for its Environmental Report?

Haier Group Corporation has a recent ESG Report which contains several targets for carbon emissions and recycling. However, as the date set for its carbon emissions targets has expired, Candy receives a middle rating.

What can Candy do to improve its score? 

Candy’s below-benchmark score within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Cookers sector is the result of an assessment of multiple ethical criteria.

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