    Sustainability

     



    With our mission to be a global fashion brand comes a great responsibility to think and act sustainable on all levels. On this journey it is all about awareness in choices of material, production, transportation and consumption, while at the same time striving for innovations and solutions that can really be a game changer. These are our everyday commitments.

    For the full story, read our sustainability report 2018. The most important highlights and commitments from the report are listed below:

    CONSCIOUS DESIGNS

    Focusing on materials

     


     

    We are committed to select material with less strain on planet and people (page 12-16 in the report). These were our achievements in 2018.

     

    • Chrome-free tanned leather, selected for all components close to bare skin to prevent allergies.

    • Organic GOTS-certified cotton replaces conventional cotton for linings and insocks for less environmental impact.

    • Recycled polyester replaces new polyester to save natural resources.

    SUSTAINABLE CONSUMPTION

    A cooperation and dialogue with the end consumer with the aim to create more circular fashion

     


     

    In 2018 we have been focusing on further actions to close the loop within production – distribution – consumption (page 3, 8, 12 & 24).

     

    • During 2018, our remaining stores joined the Shoe Bring Back program. This means that you can leave shoes for systematic reuse and circular recycling in all our concept stores.

    • We made continuous trials with post-consumer rubber, directly deriving from our Shoe Bring Back volumes, to take further steps towards closing the loop.

    PRODUCTION & SOCIAL

    Continuous improvements of the working environment

     


     

    Safety in the working environment is improved by close cooperation with our suppliers (page 10, 22-23 & 32-33). These are the main achievements for 2018:

     

    • Further commitment to share know-how widely, by education both to management and to our co-workers in the production.

    • During 2018 we have been proceeding with our innovative "glue project" aiming to replace harmful chemicals in production. First tests conducted during the year with promising results.

    PRODUCTION & ENVIRONMENT

    Minimizing emission & use of natural resources

     


     

    The use of fossil energy must be reduced. And so must the use of processed water from our industry (page 18-20). This is a longterm commitment and for 2018 we report: 

     

    • In 2018 we stated that we aim to reduce our CO2 emissions deriving from goods transport by 50% until 2030.

    • The learnings from the STWI cooperation was used both in hands-on factory projects, and in the education about energy and water usage.

    STAFF & ENGAGEMENT

    A conscious integration of sustainable business throughout our operations

     


     

    We continue aiming to enable each person and function within our business to make conscious and sustainable everyday choices (page 8-9, 12 & 27).

     

    • Circular design framework was applied to strengthen sustainable material choices within our product development.

    • Our international sales representatives were trained in sustainability from a global perspective, including Agenda 2030.
