Ethical brand ratings and accreditation since 2001

How ethical and sustainable is Lec? 

Lec is included in The Good Shopping Guide’s Fridge-Freezers Ethical Ratings Table. Lec has yet to meet our Ethical Benchmark, but we believe that in the future, the brand will make the necessary changes to function as a more ethical organisation. Lec might increase consumer trust by applying for Ethical Accreditation, which would include a more complete examination and suggestions for ethical development.

More information on the issues this industry faces may be found in The Good Shopping Guide to eco-friendly Fridge-Freezer brands.

What does Lec  do?

Lec produces household appliances and is owned by Glen Dimplex Group.

For which criteria does Lec perform poorly? 

Due to the absence of a Code of Conduct, Lec received a low rating. The brand’s parent company has a Sustainability Report that includes a Net Zero aim and other proof of progress, but no other targets, therefore it obtained a middle rating for the Environmental Report.

In what areas does Lec score well for its ethics?

As the company has no ties to any of the following: Nuclear power, Fossil Fuels, Animal Welfare, Armaments, Political Donations, or Public Record Complaints, Stoves obtains a good rating.

How can Lec improve its Ethical Rating?

The Ethical Rating of a brand is divided into three categories by The Good Shopping Guide: the Environment, People and Animals. Find out more about how we rate.

Lec might apply for Ethical Accreditation for more detailed guidance on how to improve.

By publishing a Code of Conduct and a more thorough Environmental Report that contains a number of goals for the brand to aim towards, Lec may raise its grade and satisfy our fundamental ethical requirements.

Are you curious about how obtaining Ethical Accreditation could be beneficial for your brand? Accredited brands can display The Good Shopping Guide mark, showcasing to consumers that it can be trusted as an ethical and sustainable brand.
