Sustainability Report

For our daily business and sustainability work, we have several policies that serve as a framework and guidance.

Every year we summarize our efforts in a yearly report. The sustainability report contains more details about how we work with materials, production, and the products as well as Nudie Jeans as a workplace. It also contains our challenges and goals for the future. Nudie Jeans' sustainability report for 2022 reflects the activities performed at the Head Office in Gothenburg's own retail stores and subsidiaries but also includes the impact we create through our production suppliers in Italy, Portugal, Tunisia, Türkiye, Poland, Lithuania, Sweden, and India.

The denim industry has a high impact on local communities and the environment, and we work the best we can to minimize the negative effects and contribute with positive impacts where possible, in a social, economic, and environmental manner. We hope that by sharing and being transparent about our work we will inspire others to take responsibility for their full product where the impacts occur. We have mapped our value chain and identified where our biggest impacts lie and which topics we need to report on. We start from the GRI standards and the Sustainable Development Goals and have identified our most important stakeholders as customers, suppliers, and employees.
