Limiting global warming is one of the most urgent tasks the world is facing. Science shows the world must half the emissions by 2030 and reach net-zero emissions by 2050. This is a tremendous task to be accomplished with governmental regulations, business leadership, unseen innovations, and large-scale industry initiatives.
We have teamed up with an expert consultancy and measured our emissions. We have measured our emissions in our own operations, and in our value chain, which is the emissions from the production of our products, transportation, and shipment to our customers.
We are proud that our emissions from our own operations are already very low. 17t CO2e! The reasons are obvious: For the size of our business, we work with few employees and don’t need a lot of office space. It was only 8 years ago that our garage was big enough. Most of our employees live in Borås, where our office is, and from 2021 we only use renewable electricity. We sell everything online and don’t have any retail stores needing light and heating. That does not mean, we can’t do it better. We promise to become climate neutral in our own operations.
Our transparency work shows that almost 100% of our emissions are outside our own operations. They come from extracting raw materials, spinning yarn, weaving fabrics, coloring them, and sewing clothes. They also come from transporting our products from the factories to our warehouses and to our customers. We are working to reduce these emissions.
|Our emissions 2020/2021||Ton CO2e||%|
|Sourced products and services||12,233||79.9|
|Transport to warehouses||2,417||15.6|
|Transport to customers||905||5.2|
