Transparency Report Card: Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is ETAG encouraging consumers to shop at the stores with the higher scores?

ETAG does not endorse any particular companies. We are urging consumers to demand sufficient information from all companies so they can make ethical choices on their own based on the information available.

The ETAG report shows that no major retailer or brand is currently providing customers or shareholders sufficient information to make ethical choices.
