Sustainability

Fristads for change.

We are committed to bringing about positive change and minimising the negative impact of our business operations. Both for the environment and for all the people who help make our products.

Sustainability strategy

Global climate change and environmental degradation are the challenges of our time and the textile industry needs to do its part to protect the planet. We have set an ambitious goal to cut our emissions of greenhouse gases by 50% by 2030 and we want to lead the change within the clothing industry.

Sustainable products

To compete with quality rather than price has been a key principle for Fristads from the start. For us, making quality garments is the core in our sustainability work. And it all starts with a sustainable product offer and production.

EPD - a new standard

Our ambition to make a difference has led us onto new, unknown paths. Our most comprehensive project so far is without doubt the development of a new standard for measuring the overall environmental impact of a garment, something we were the first in the world to apply to a clothing collection.
