Phase Eight

How ethical is Phase Eight?

Phase Eight, a fashion brand owned by The Foschini Group LTD, is given a high Ethical Rating by The Good Shopping Guide. This brand receives an excellent Good Shopping Guide Ethical Score in our Ethical Fashion Retailers Ratings Table and has therefore met our minimum Ethical Benchmark. This brand could consider applying for Ethical Accreditation, because of its good Ethical Score.

In what areas does Phase Eight perform well?

There have been no discoveries of Political Donations being made by Phase Eight or its parent organisation, The Foschini Group. The Foschini Group has also not been found to have committed any Human Rights abuses, which is important for a fashion brand. Fashion brands often make a huge profit from mistreating and abusing garment workers (who are often low-income women in developing nations, and are therefore vulnerable to workplace abuses, such as low wages and unsafe conditions).

In what areas does Phase Eight perform poorly? 

In its Sustainability Report, The Foschini Group establishes objectives but lacks any completion dates. Phase Eight scores poorly in our environmental report standards due to these ambiguous aims. Having clear objectives enables investors and consumers to identify businesses that are ethical, sustainable, and committed to achieving Net Zero over the long term.

How can Phase Eight brand improve its Ethical Rating? 

The Good Shopping Guide’s score results from 15 ethical criteria, in relation to Phase Eight. To improve its Ethical Rating and appear at the very top of our Fashion Retailers Rating Table, Phase Eight should enhance its Environmental Report, provide certified- Organic goods and seek Ethical Accreditation for further research and investigation by The Good Shopping Guide.
