Is Hotpoint an ethical cooker brand?

Owned by the American company Whirlpool, Hotpoint is a British brand of domestic appliances.

Unfortunately, Hotpoint currently does not meet our minimum Ethical Benchmark and as a result, has a below benchmark score in The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Cookers sector.

Despite its low Ethical Rating, The Good Shopping Guide still encourages Hotpoint to get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. We would provide Hotpoint with an assessment and some tips on how to improve its score and become one of the top-ranking cooker brands on the Cookers: Ethical Comparison Ratings Table.

Would you like to see how other brands compare to Hotpoint 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 had to fulfil to meet our minimum Ethical Benchmark.

The Good Shopping Guide suggests that all brands follow in the footsteps of our top-rated brands and introduce more sustainable practices.

Does Hotpoint have an Environmental Report?

Hotpoint is awarded a top rating for our Environmental Report category.

Within its recent Sustainability Report, Whirlpool shares its goals, including a Net Zero target and information on how it plans to achieve this. It also includes its targets for recycled plastic, as well as evidence of progress on its previous goals.

Why does Hotpoint receive a bottom rating for Political Donations?

Within recent Election Cycles, Whirlpool has donated over $542k. This amount is over The Good Shopping Guide’s threshold which is explained in our criteria and as a result, Hotpoint receives a bottom score.

What can Hotpoint do to improve its score? 

Hotpoint’s below benchmark score within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Cookers sector is the result of a calculation of various ethical criteria.

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

Your Cooker brand could benefit from Ethical Accreditation. Our Accredited brands proudly display our Ethical Mark which highlights 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 achieved our ethics and sustainability certification. If you would like some more information, get in touch or complete a rapid initial ethical and sustainability assessment form.
