Transparency

Three Leaves Earned

  • These locations abide by the International Labor Organization’s standards to protect human and labor rights.

Fair Labor

Two Leaves Earned
  • Veja ensures a fair living wage with their Supplier Code of Conduct and by buying materials directly from producers, cutting out the “middleman.”

  • In at least one factory, transportation to work is provided for employees.

Room for Improvement:

  • Veja can improve Fair Labor by collecting worker feedback, such as via surveys or supporting unions.

Sustainably Made

Two Leaves Earned

  • Veja uses B-Mesh, a material made from recycled plastic bottles. 

  • In some vegan shoes, Veja uses a corn based leather alternative. 

Room for Improvement:

  • Veja can improve Sustainably Made by measuring and disclosing their CO2 emissions.
