Is Hisense an ethical cooker brand?

Owned by the Chinese appliance and electronics manufacturer of the same name, Hisense receives a low score in our Ethical Cookers research sector.

Because of its below-benchmark score, Hisense cannot yet be classed as an ethical brand. Despite this, The Good Shopping Guide still recommends that Hisense apply for Ethical Accreditation. The Good Shopping Guide would provide it with an assessment and some advice on how to become one of our best cooker brands.

Would you like to find out how other brands compare against Hisense within the Ethical Cookers sector? Visit the Cookers Ethical Ratings Table. The Good Shopping Guide’s Ratings Table can help you to learn more about the criteria that our top-rated brands have met to achieve reaching our minimum Ethical Benchmark.

All brands are encouraged by The Good Shopping Guide to follow in the footsteps of our top-rated brands and introduce more sustainable practices.

What does Hisense have a high score for?

Because of its lack of negative records, Hisense has top scores in our ethical research categories of Nuclear Power, Fossil Fuels and Armaments.

Why does Hisense receive a bottom rating for its Environmental Report?

Hisense has an ESG Report (which is now a few years out of date). The report does not contain any targets and the information is quite brief.

As a result, it receives a bottom rating for our Environment Report research category.

What can Hisense do to improve its score? 

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

Due to its low placement on the Cookers Ethical Ratings Table, we recommend that Hisense get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. After we received its application, The Good Shopping Guide would offer Hisense some tips on how to work on its bottom scores. If it follows our advice, Hisense could see its position rise on our Ethical Cookers Ratings Table.

Your Cooker brand could benefit from Ethical Accreditation. Our Accredited brands are able to proudly display our Ethical Mark which highlights to consumers that its products are ethical and sustainable.

The Good Shopping Guide’s Ratings Tables can show you which other brands within the Ethical Cookers sector have achieved our ethics and sustainability certification. If you would like some more information, contact us or fill out a rapid initial ethics and sustainability assessment form.
