“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”

- Maya Angelou.

This is what we want to improve in our sustainability strategy:

  • Learn more about materials and technology. Especially textiles. 

  • Learn more about our recycling systems in Norway and globally. Especially when it comes to plastics.  

  • Demand more green choices from our customers

  • Attend to even more green events

  • Learn more about sustainable production in general and different certification schemes.

  • Become lifecycle-experts and deliver sustainability strategies as a part of our design package to customers.

  • Zero compromises on the environment’s expense.

  • Get more green projects!

 If you have a feeling that you, or someone you know, can help us become even more green we’ll be happy to arrange a meeting to exchange experiences and questions!
