Is Indesit an ethical cooker brand?

Owned by home appliance company Whirlpool Corporation, Indesit is a below-benchmark brand within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Cookers sector. As a result of its low score, it cannot yet be classed as an ethical brand.

Even though it has a low rating, we still encourage Indesit to apply for Ethical Accreditation. The Good Shopping Guide would provide it with an assessment and some advice to help it on its journey to becoming one of the best cooker brands on the Cookers: Ethical Comparison Ratings Table.

Do you want to find out how Indesit compares to other brands within the Ethical Cookers sector? Visit The Good Shopping Guide’s Cookers Ethical Ratings Table. Our Ratings Table can help you to find out more about the criteria that our top-rated brands have fulfilled to reach our minimum Ethical Benchmark.

The Good Shopping Guide encourages all brands to follow the example set by top-rated brands such and introduce more sustainable practices.

What does Indesit have a high score for?

Whirlpool Corporation, Indesit’s parent company has a robust Code of Conduct and as a result, receives a top score in this category.

It also receives a top score for our Human Rights and Animal Welfare research categories due to its lack of negative records.

Does Indesit have any bottom scores?

Unfortunately, Indesit receives a bottom score for our Political Donations category.

In recent election cycles, Whirlpool Corporation donated over $542k which is more than the threshold for a middle or top score within our criteria.

What could Indesit do to help improve its score? 

Indesit’s below-benchmark score within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Cookers sector is the outcome of an evaluation of ethical criteria.

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

Your Cooker brand could benefit from Ethical Accreditation. Our Accredited brands proudly display our Ethical Mark, showcasing 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.
