How we assess our

brand partners

directory background country@2x.png

Each brand on our platform goes through a verification process (scroll down for full process) before becoming an Amplify brand partner. A pivotal part of the partner selection process is our assessment of a brand’s sustainability credentials. While our assessment and selection process is very thorough, we recognize we are not an accrediting body nor do we claim to be. Our approach is transparency driven. We showcase each brand’s sustainability credentials in their sustainability profile, which allows each consumer to individually assess each brand before choosing to shop with them. Each brand is assessed across the below eight areas:

1

Company mission & values

5

Product materials

2

Internal policies & practices

6

Supply Chain

Transparency

7

Fair labour

4

Certifications

Independent research

We conduct our own independent research and due diligence based on publicly available information. 

Interview with leadership

We engage company leadership to verbally assess each company’s eligibility under the criteria outlined above. 

Application

Following a successful interview, the brand completes an application form which questions leadership across the outlined areas of eligibility in more detail. 

Assessment

We collate all information to make an informed decision on whether or not a partner is accepted on the platform.

Continuous review

Our review process is subject to continuous iterations based on new learnings, knowledge, research, peer reviews and specific industry developments.
