Is Zanussi an ethical cooker brand?

Owned by Electrolux AB, Zanussi is an Italian home appliance brand.

Unfortunately, due to its low score within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Cookers sector, Zanussi cannot yet be classed as an ethical cooker brand.

Although it has a low rating, we still encourage Zanussi to apply for Ethical Accreditation. The Good Shopping Guide would offer an assessment and some advice on how to become one of the best cooker brands on our Cookers: Ethical Comparison Ratings Table.

Would you like to see how other brands rate up against Zanussi 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 met to reach our minimum Ethical Benchmark.

The Good Shopping Guide suggests that all brands follow in the footsteps of our top-rated companies and adopt more ethical policies.

What does Zanussi have a high score for?

For our research categories of Animal Welfare, Armaments and Nuclear Power, Zanussi receives a top rating due to its lack of negative criticisms.

It also receives a top score for our Environmental Report category. Electrolux, Zanussi’s parent company has a recent Sustainability Report which contains evidence of progress and several future targets.

Why does Zanussi receive a middle rating for its Code of Conduct?

Electrolux has a Code of Conduct which contains a Human Rights section. Within this section, Electrolux has no specific information on working hours or age restrictions for child labour.

As a result, it receives a middle rating for this category.

What can Zanussi do to improve its score? 

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

Because it has a low rating on the Cookers Ethical Ratings Table we recommend that Zanussi get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. After we received its application, The Good Shopping Guide would offer Zanussi some advice on how it can improve upon its bottom and middle ratings.
