MINIMISING THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF OUR ACTIVITIES

 

Our production takes place at a rented 6,000 square metre facility in Skive, Denmark. Production has a relatively low environmental impact compared to the footprint of our materials.

During production we use electricity and a little water. Therefore, the main footprints of our operations are electricity and heating, the transportation of raw materials and final goods, as well as waste in the factory.

We aim to make reductions in all areas and have asked our employees to contribute their ideas.

The electricity we use in production is certified CO2 neutral and from renewable sources. Our production has high resource efficiency with 98.5% of materials ending in finished goods. We have also eliminated the waste of packing materials from our suppliers – these are now recycled.
