THE WORLD’S FIRST ENVIRONMENTALLY DECLARED GARMENT COLLECTION
Fristads is the first company in the world to measure the environmental impact of clothes. Fristads Green is a concept of workwear where the entire manufacturing chain is characterized by environmental awareness and innovation to minimize the footprint on the environment.
We launched the first Fristads Green collection in the autumn 2019. Our aim is to make the Green concept a part of every product segment in the next coming years. All Fristads Green products have an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) with information about the product's total environmental impact. In September 2019 the craftsman collection was awarded with the international design prize Red Dot Award: Design Concept. Below you find the Fristads Green collections for craftsmen, industry and service and cold wind rain.
Water Scarcity Footprint (WSF) is a measurement of the potential environmental impact of water consumption. It considers the relative availability of water in a particular geographical area.
Global Warming Potential (GWP) describes the ability of different greenhouse gases to trap heat in the atmosphere over time, relative to carbon dioxide. To compare the effect on global warming of different gases, the values are converted to carbon dioxide equivalents.
We have made it easy for you to calculate how much you can decrease your environmental footprint simply by choosing environmentally declared workwear.
