BuyAware is the first all-in-one rating that examines the entire life cycle of a product and thus provides a complete insight into the ethical and ecological background of a product. The basis of the BuyAware rating is laid down by our 53 criteria in 6 categories. Each criterion takes a specific problem into account and quantifies it with a percentage value. Most of the data is currently collected manually from the annual and sustainability reports of the individual companies. Our rating is supplemented by further data from independent organisations such as CHIP Online or iFixit. The rating also examines how much specific data the companies themselves provide. The data is visualized by means of a spider web representation.
