We are proud partners in Mistra's new BioPath research program. Mistra is a Swedish foundation for strategic environmental research, and the program focuses on integrating consideration for biodiversity in the decision-making processes. Being a part of this is, of course, very exciting for us.

Since 2018, Nudie Jeans has mapped all emissions in all three scopes following the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. It covers everything from stores, offices, company cars, and emissions in production, including transport and the user phase.
