Project JUST was created to transform the fashion industry into a transparent, accountable and sustainable system that celebrates the stories, the people and the resources behind the clothing.

To do so, they developed a robust methodology for researching brands and their sustainability practices for their searchable brand directory. The directory provides comparable research on brands to empower shoppers to make more informed and ethical purchasing decisions and to put pressure on brands to improve their practices.

While Project JUST dissolved in 2018, the research methodology can be continued through data contributions on WikiRate. 

This metric falls within the Environment category, which covers key measurable aspects of environmental sustainability for a fashion retail brand, from material impact to energy and waste conservation. Many of the answers to these questions can be found in a brand’s annual CSR report or in other publicly accessible publications. However, please note that a few of the others may require more indepth research or even a company-insider’s input.


Methodology

Researchers will need to look through information about a brand that is publicly available, either self-reported OR third-party reported information for the Project JUST category: Environment

We suggest familiarizing yourself with the brand’s reporting by visiting the brand’s website, Annual, Integrated or CR Reports, or any information on their CSR or sustainability policies to find information about the brand's renewable energy use.

As the question applies to the company's supply chain, the answer may be found in a separate policy document. Use keyword searches (Renewable, Energy, Suppliers) to find the answer.

Select:

  • Yes, at all locations/facilities - If the company mentions renewable energy is used in ALL locations/facilitites of its supply chain.
  • Yes, but only at some locations/facilities- If the company mentions renewable energy is used in SPECIFIC locations/facilitites of its supply chain.
  • No- If the company explixitly states it DOES NOT USE renewable energy in the supply chain.
  • Uknown- If you cannot find information on renewable energy use in the supply chain
