This is not an impact summary, but where we will place it. The summary will describe what the brand is doing well, and where the opportunity areas are related to social and environmental impact.
Additionally, the scores seen here are PRELIMINARY scores for Untouched World, as we are working to evidence their assessment. Once scores are finalized, the summary above will be updated and their full assessment will be embedded below for full transparency.
Any rating at or above a C is an excellent score by comparison to traditional fashion brands.
This assessment is aspirational, meaning that a perfect score is unattainable due to current technological and systemic industry limitations. The assessment points obtained are converted to an 11pt rating scale (A+ to F). The ratings are weighted to reflect current day possibilities and best-in-class practices, but also leaves space for brands to move towards true and full sustainability as newly designed systems, processes, technology and innovation allow.
The scores are calculated using a normal distribution determined by the mean and standard deviation of the scores of over 60 “traditional” fashion brands (brands with missions that do not focus on addressing social and environmental harms of the industry). These are based on assessment scores determined by Re/Make. Further details of Sellery’s normal distribution calculations will be made public with our next phase of website development.
