The kaleidoscopic textile world

In our Sustainability Report for 2015, our focus in is on the kaleidoscopic nature of the textile world. It’s impossible to describe all aspects of sustainability in the same way and there is also wide variation in how sustainability is measured. In order to maintain our focus, we must prioritise.


In this sustainability report, which is our fourth, we're focusing on four aspects of the textile industry in order to provide insight into its complexity. We also tell about the Gina Tricot Spirit, which has made us one of the year’s best career companies, as well as our efforts in the area of more sustainable transports and the development of sustainable materials.


The following list of four items summarizes our goals until 2028, which is when Gina Tricot will celebrate its 30th anniversary. By 2028:


»» All products will be manufactured from sustainable materials

»» All production will occur in a sustainable way

»» All transports will occur using sustainable methods

»» All products will be recycled and used as new resources when customers are finished using them


The textile industry has an environmental impact on our water, soil and climate, which is why prioritisation is so difficult. “Most important of all, is that we, as a fashion company, play a positive role,” says Per-Johan Swartling, Interim CEO at Gina Tricot. “We conduct business with countries that are in a vulnerable situation. Our view, however, is that international trade helps make the world a better place. Trade makes us part of the solution to problems stemming from poverty.”
