For decades, the fashion industry has been about overconsumption without much thought for the environment and with outdated business models.
The industry has become aware that there must be a change in thinking, and end users have become more environmentally conscious. This has put the companies under pressure to do away with the status quo.
How we have chosen to work with this can be read through the entire report, which you will find below. We work from the mindset of developing quality products with timeless designs that last longer and thus extend the product's life cycle.
UN'S 17 GLOBAL GOALS
Our report shows a selection of the UN's global goals that we have chosen to focus on and are trying to work towards in our daily work.
We know there is still a long way to go before we as a company can actively say that we are meeting these world goals, but with the awareness of this, we have taken the first step in the right direction.
Restructuring of our NOOS program
At BLS Hafnia, we focus on reducing our climate and environmental footprint and have taken this
into our business plan. It is an important part of our everyday life, and therefore we try
We also make sure that as many of our products, as far as possible, are produced with so as much consideration as possible.
In 2019 we started the processes and were able to launch in 2020
first time with sweat production on our NOOS collection.
In 2019, we had the desire and goal to start the process of changing the entire NOSS production
to organic or recycled materials. This adjustment is
still in process with accessories including caps, and gloves, as mentioned in our work
towards the UN's Global Goals.
This can be seen, among other things, in the overview with the distribution of material compositions,
which has been one of the first tools to map our consumption of various materials
and a method by which it is simpler to see where and how we can put
our goals for the future, as well as which initiatives are needed to reach our goals.
Webshop packaging can be reused for return goods. You do not need to use new packaging, as you can send it back in the same bag. In addition, we have developed a return policy so that you do not bring unnecessary paper with you for return. The customer must
make an effort and print a return label from our website. It has saved us
88-90% paper in the company, as only 10-12% of all orders are returned.
BLS Hafnia - TAKE BACK PROGRAM
In continuation of participation in the Green Circular Transition, our first initiative is
our Take Back scheme to take caps back, as it is a product that is not reused, as a cap cannot be washed and reused for a particularly long time in the same way as clothes. We want to give it a new life and collect caps and
donate them around the world to orphanages primarily in North Macedonia. This is something we have done in the past with products that have not been sold.
