Sustainability summary

Tyrrells has achieved the E-label. This is our lowest possible sustainability score, and Tyrrells has earned it by communicating nothing concrete about the policies for environment, carbon emissions or labor conditions in low-wages countries. For us as consumers, it is unclear whether Tyrrells is committed to sustainability or not.
