ALDO doesn't use any organic materials and only uses a small proportion of recycled fabrics such as recycled polyester. Only very few of its collections are dedicated to sustainable fashion.
Most of the fabrics it uses are either natural without relevant certifications, such as regular cotton, or synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as polyester, nylon, acrylic, and more.
ALDO doesn't publish a list of its manufacturers and processing facilities on its corporate website. It doesn't disclose how it chooses its network of suppliers.
The 2021 Fashion Transparency Index gave ALDO a score of only 14% based on how much the group discloses about its social and environmental policies, practices, and impacts.
ALDO manufactures its clothes in many East Asian countries where human rights and labor law violations still happen every day.
The Canadian retailer doesn't show any labor certification standard that would ensure good working conditions, decent living wages, health, safety, and other important rights for workers in its supply chain.
ALDO has a code of conduct that applies to all its suppliers and subcontractors. It assesses compliance with its Code of Conduct with semi-announced audits.
ALDO doesn't use any exotic animal skin, hair, fur, or angora. But it uses leather and wool to manufacture many of its products.
These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and waste. More sustainable alternatives exist.
ALDO doesn't show any measurement of its greenhouse gas emissions, water usage, chemical release, pollution, or waste across its supply chain.
It doesn't have any clear sustainability goals, science-based targets, or timeline to improve in the future either.
