Sandro develops more eco-friendly products and environmentally friendly shipping options. It revises design and production to have a significant impact and make its future products more sustainable.
Sandro uses a medium proportion of organic materials such as organic cotton and hemp or recycled materials such as recycled polyester and regenerated nylon.
Only a few of its collections are dedicated to sustainable fashion. Many of its fabrics are either natural without relevant certifications, such as regular cotton or linen, or synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as polyester, nylon, acrylic, and more.
Sandro also uses a medium amount of semi-synthetic fibers or regenerated cellulosic fabrics such as Tencel lyocell, modal, acetate, and viscose.
Tencel is an eco-friendly fiber made with wood pulp from certified sustainable forests. But only a medium proportion of the materials used by Sandro are environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Sandro doesn't publish a list of all 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 Sandro a score of only 9% based on how much the brand discloses about its social and environmental policies, practices, and impacts.
Sandro manufactures its clothes in Turkey and many other East Asian countries where human rights and labor law violations still happen every day.
The French clothing retailer relies on several labor certification standards that ensure good working conditions, decent living wages, health, safety, and other important rights for workers in its supply chain.
Sandro has a code of conduct that applies to all its suppliers and subcontractors to improve working conditions in the supply chain and for employees.
Sandro assesses compliance with its Code of Conduct by informal visits or third-party audits with or without notice. It is committed to ethical and responsible production.
Sandro doesn't use any exotic animal skin or fur. But it uses animal hair and angora, as well as leather, wool, silk, and down feathers to manufacture many of its clothing pieces.
These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and waste. More sustainable alternatives exist.
Sandro has committed to an eco-responsible ready-to-wear and accessories collection for women (70%) and men (80%) by 2025. It plans to have 100% of the full range in organic cotton by 2025.
Sandro will also source 100% Ecovero or FSC-certified eco-responsible viscose by 2025. And by 2025, 100% of its Tier 1-4 supplier will have been audited by international organizations.
