"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."

Youth for Sustainable Impact

Youth for Sustainable Impact

NGO or NPO

We have multiple projects running under us. Project AYUDHA: We educate and train (skill-development) rural communities to manufacture Eco-friendly fashion accessories, apparel and home-decor items. We also connect them with markets. Our focus is on women to help them break the gender based stereotypes. Our aim through this project is to promote green jobs and to promote the culture of entrepreneurship in rural communities which would help them to attain financial independence. Another Project under YSI is to spread awareness and to engage youth to take action for SDGs. We visit educational institutes to conduct sessions on SDGs and then the students are mentored and guided to take action for SDGs in their local communities. They work in groups and start a project based on their interested SDG. Project STEP: We did a pilot project on testing an IQ-EQ based adaptive & interactive education system with more focus on practical knowledge along with theoretical knowledge. We believe education should be fun-based learning. We also focused on giving the results in the form of optimistic comments with graphs instead of grades which reduces the depression caused due to low grades. We also gave equal importance to extra-curricular activities and va;lue education. Students were involved in activities to promote SDGs along with studies. This pilot was successful and we plan to implement in large scale.

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.
