FDB Møbler

Company

"We only use FSC certified wood and ECO-TEX certified textile. We change our production if needed in order to certify all furniture with the Nordic Ecolabel (The Swan) before 2025. These actions certify that all wood used is from sustainable managed forests, that environmentally harmful chemicals during production is minimized, that the toxicity of chemicals gassed off in interiors is insignificant, that allergic provoking materials are restricted, that the energy consumption during production is minimized, that recycling of materials is eased, that the furniture quality is of a high standard, etc. Further we calculate climate emissions on all our furniture products. These show that we have lower climate emissions on our furniture then what is standard in the furniture industry. Based on these screenings we will set goals for emission reductions in the coming years. Our owner (COOP) is a co-founder of DIEH (Dansk Initiativ for Etisk Handel) and a member of UN's Global Compact were we report progress on all the 17 areas of sustainable development every year. We collaborate with independent organisations like BSCI, SA8000 , WRAP , SMETA or SEDEX which audit suppliers outside the EU to ensure workers rights, good working conditions, decent pay, etc. Further COOP has its own office in Hong Kong which screens product quality and instigate laboratory screenings in order to avoid harmful chemicals in the products."

IMARIT

IMARIT

Company

This brand is Imarit, which means origin in Lenca, the language of my ancestors. Imarit goes to the origin of one of the most sustainable fibers and by doing so the commitment is to create as much value addition to the ecosystem of the alpaca as possible. My work close to the artisans and witnessing how sustainable they can produce, how much impact this can create in their life and society has been the sparkle for the fashion initiative; however after years of observations on how the advance of fast fashion is affecting the general conditions and behaviors of our society I believed that it was important to create a brand that would project back those simpler and ethical ways of living. The goal of Imarit is to build a well-known sustainable fashion brand that on one hand creates value for the fashion consumer who cares deeply about the environment, and on the other helps lift Alpaca weavers in the highlands of the Peruvian Andes out of poverty – particularly women - by providing decent work, driving business, competitiveness and inclusive economic growth. Specific results we see: - Help sustain alpaca herders and breeders in the Peruvian highlands - Preserve ancient handwoven techniques used by Aymara weavers and improve working conditions and business competitiveness through models of co-operative and co-ownership. - Increase in the percentage of weavers communities with an active and effective relationship with the cultural and tourism programs. - Stronger women’s voice and representation in social dialogue with local, regional and national levels. -Help fashion consumers to reduce their textile waste by buying high-quality alpaca handwoven garments that are beautiful and long-lasting, and which are produced in a cycle that ensures that every person who knits their garments is treated with respect, with fair wages and fair working conditions.

As of 2018, 132 million girls are not in school. Due to stigmas, poverty and menstruation. As long as girls and women are prevented from achieving their full potential, the world is only taking steps backward: Promoting gender equality and educating girls is key for the world to deliver on all SDGs. Through partnerships with some of the largest NGOs in the world, we develop educational games on Sexual and Reproductive Health as well as Mental Health, to educate and empower girls and boys(!) to make informed decisions about their own bodies and their own future.

We empower responsible travellers. We do this by tackling the first barrier to sustainable behavior: a lack of information and at the same an oversaturated market of content. Our tools play a role in encouraging people to think for themselves, to travelling with intention proving them that planning, sustainability, and serendipity can go hand in hand. More than that, we are always improving our practices, which means that we operate with handpicked suppliers; we use only certified paper; we plant a tree with every printed book; and that we take our users' privacy very seriously.
