Each product has individual impact-based metrics that correspond to each of the five following categories.
- Environmental Impact
- Labor rights
- Animal rights
- Community impact
- Product Composition
A product can score 20 possible points in each category for a total of 100 points. Point distribution is based on how many metrics/certifications are met for each category. For each metric:
- If a product meets the requirement, it will positively impact its total score.
- If a product does not meet the requirement, it will negatively impact its total score.
- If a metric is unrelated to the product, it is factored out of the calculation and has a neutral impact on its total score.
Where You Come In:
If you have set your My FIG Values in your account settings, our base FIG Value score will be joined with your FIG Values preferences to calculate a personalized weighted score. If you care more about one impact category over another, those associated criteria will play a larger part in determining the final My FIG Values score.
Our goal is to create a scoring system that helps you better see how different products match up to the values you care about! Be sure to set up your FIG Values preferences.
