All below-benchmark brands are encouraged by The Good Shopping Guide to follow in the footsteps of cooker brands like Miele and introduce more sustainable policies.

What makes Miele such a sustainable oven brand?

As it is a top-rated brand, Miele receives a top score from The Good Shopping Guide in almost all of our categories.

However, we are especially pleased with its top score for our Environmental Report category. Miele’s recent Sustainability Report contains carbon reduction targets and recycling targets, as well as evidence of progress.

Miele also has a robust Purchasing Policy which is ‘based on numerous existing international human rights.’

This policy awards Miele with a top rating in our Code of Conduct category.

What can Miele do to improve its score? 

As it has such a high score within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Cookers sector, Miele is already eligible for Ethical Accreditation.

All it needs to do to become an Accredited brand is get in touch and apply. By doing so, Miele would receive our ethical certification and be able to proudly display it.

Did you know that your Cooker brand could benefit from Ethical Accreditation? Our Accredited brands are able to display our logo which assures consumers that purchasing its products is an ethical and sustainable decision.
