This brand is partnered with Pledge 1%, a global movement that donates 1% of their staff time, product, profit, and/or equity to any charity of the brand’s choice. Apero donates to Women’s Community Shelter. Customers can choose to offset their carbon at checkout, and all packaging is sustainable. They manufacture out of the Guangzhou Province of China and all factories are certified by Sedex, an ethical trade membership organisation, working with businesses to improve working conditions in global supply chains. In saying this, there is no evidence it ensures living wage in its supply chain. The website does not list sufficient supply chain information about social, environmental and economic impact to give the brand a higher rating.
