At Lindberg, we work actively with environmental issues and are constantly looking for new materials and manufacturing methods that are improved from an environmental perspective. This is perhaps most visible in the clothes we sew up, where, for example, winter jackets and overalls are products that are constantly being developed.
We carefully follow the chemical restrictions that apply and all our products must be free of substances that
added to the EU's candidate list (REACH) of "dangerous substances".
REACH is a chemical legislation that regulates the use of hazardous substances in the production of goods.
Its main objective is to protect human health and the environment from risks caused by various chemicals.
If you are interested and want to read more about REACH, you can visit their website at REACH or via the Chemicals Inspectorate .
Our environmental work is under constant development and something that is always relevant for updates
after which new and improved working methods and materials become available for our production.
REDUCE – REUSE – RECYCLE
Our goal is to manufacture products that last for many years. Products that can be repaired (with a repair kit) and with smart functions such as "growcuff" to extend the garment's sleeve and leg length and thereby extend the garment's lifespan.
We do not use down or real fur in our products (the fur products in our range are made from synthetic fur) and Lindberg distances itself from all unethical animal husbandry. For example, we make sure that merino wool comes from sheep where so-called mulesing has not occurred. The quality of the products is of great value to us and we want to design and manufacture clothes that last a long time and can be passed down to many.
All impregnation of waterproof materials is PFAS-free (free from fluorocarbons). We use an impregnation from the Rudolf Group called Bionic-Finish Eco. An impregnation that "mimics" nature's own function of water repellency. Read more about this on Rudolf's website: https://www.rudolf.de/en/technology/bionic-finish-eco/
Lindberg has no factories of its own, but manufacturing is outsourced to production facilities we have carefully selected
the requirements and criteria we have for good working conditions and environmental thinking.
We have contracted all manufacturers where they guarantee good working conditions for employees. That part of the contract is called the "Code of Conduct" and you can see an excerpt from it here.
Otherwise, the contract contains other guidelines and requirements that, for example, the manufacturing processes are free from the substances included in the EU's REACH candidate list, as well as instructions and requirements regarding the quality, packaging and labeling of the goods.
Today, manufacturing takes place mainly in China, but also in countries such as Sweden, Poland, Portugal and India.

In addition to having a responsibility to ensure that all our employees are happy in their position, we also have a responsibility to work
after always finding new innovative solutions for energy saving and recycling.
This is perhaps most visible in the investment we made in fossil-free solar energy at our office and warehouse facility in Edsbyn
but also on the sorting we have for cardboard, plastic and rubbish.

ENVIRONMENTAL LABELING AND TESTING
Several of the materials we use in production are OEKO-Tex 100 approved, such as the PU material we have in our rainwear and the merino wool we have for underwear. Bluesign material is also used, for example, in the manufacture of certain winter overalls and winter trousers.
We continuously test our materials to see that they meet the quality we set as requirements
and that it does not contain any hazardous chemicals or substances.
