The new and improved Staiy Sustainability Evaluation includes measures to improve inclusivity and accuracy, ensuring our partner brands align with Staiy’s stringent values of sustainability.
The new survey weighs the size of a company against their evaluation score, leveling the playing field for smaller companies that are making an effort, relative to their size, but are overshadowed by larger brands who can devote more resources to minimizing their ecological footprint.
By taking into account the time and resources necessary to obtain certain sustainability certifications, Staiy will evaluate small startups on other aspects of their sustainability efforts instead. This will provide them with the chance to join Staiy’s platform prior to having secured such certifications.
The updated survey comprises over one hundred quantitative and qualitative questions – double that of the original survey. Each question corresponds to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and our five Pillars: water, air, materials, work conditions and supply chain. The evaluation is most prominently related to SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production.
