No industries can turn a blind eye to the necessity of a transition to a world where our climate is not threatened by radical change. There is no longer room for wear and tear mentality and short-term business models.
At the beginning of the year, the government launched an action plan for the transition of Sweden to a circular economy. Textile is one of the currents that have been designated as a priority in the changeover. We see that the textile service industry is a given part of the solution to reach a more circular society. Our business model is basically circular and we have long served the use of textile products in a number of, often socially responsible,
functions such as care, construction / heavy industry.
We are constantly developing our business towards increased resource efficiency by sharpening goals for energy use, switching fossil energy sources to biogenes and reducing chemical and water use. For many years, we have collaborated with industry and research to close circles even more, by exploring different methods for recycling textile fibers - while incorporating residual products, such as lost fishing nets and PET bottles, as raw materials in our production of high-quality textile products.
As the world slowly returns to normal, we also see how our efforts as a bridge into society and the Swedish labor market are perhaps more important than ever for those who, through the pandemic, may have moved further away from employment and security.
