Climate change requires action by everyone around the globe. From 2007 to 2020, we reduced the CO2 emissions from our production facility by 53%.
We do not think it is enough to just be CO2 neutral. We want to be CO2 positive by 2030.
Renewable energy for sustainable carpets
Renewable energy is an important means of stopping global warming. Every year we invest extensive funds in certificates from offshore wind farms, thus ensuring the construction of even more wind turbines. Since 2018, electricity consumption at our factories has been 100% covered by investments in renewable energy.
While 28% of our current biofuel consumption is off-set by investments in certificates supporting sustainable biofuel production, it’s our goal to increase this number to 100% by 2025.
Climate partnership with the Danish government
In 2019, the Danish government set a goal of reducing Denmark’s CO2 emissions by 70%. This ambitious goal requires close cooperation with the industries that are responsible for a significant portion of all emissions. Based on our longstanding climate efforts, CEO John Vestergaard was elected deputy chairman of the Climate Partnership for Manufacturing Companies, which advises the government on efforts to reach the goal.
We are proud to have the opportunity to make a contribution to solving climate challenges on a national level.

A green thread runs through everything we do. It begins in 1938. And it continues into the future – both the part we can see, and the part we can’t. It connects every story, every design, every initiative that we bring into the world.
