The FIG Values Score

Fig Value: ?

How does it work? You take our short questionnaire (found on your account page) and we match your values with products that excel in the areas you care about. Good products are still very good products, but they don't necessarily line up perfectly with your values. Great products are products that have at least a 50% values match. Awesome products are truly incredible—we're consistently impressed that companies that do this much good for the world even exist!  You may wonder why there is no score lower than good.

Calculation Breakdown:

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 here.

How does it work?

You take our short questionnaire (found on your account page) and we match your values with products that excel in the areas you care about.

  • Good products are still very good products, but they don't necessarily line up perfectly with your values.
  • Great products are products that have at least a 50% values match.
  • Awesome products are truly incredible—we're consistently impressed that companies that do this much good for the world even exist! 

You may wonder why there is no score lower than good. This is because we refuse to carry products from companies that do not do good for the world. If a product does not score well, it does not make it on to The FIG.  

How are companies scored? 

We score every product and company showcased on our site based upon extensive research of each company's practices. We look at five main categories—Environmental Impact, Labor Rights, Animal Rights + Biodiversity, Product Composition, and Community Impact. It's no coincidence that these are the same ones that we ask you about in our values questionnaire!
