You should always do your best – both as a person and a company. Therefore, we have a burning desire for our prints to be as sustainable as possible and to show consideration for people and the environment.
There are many elements that can be included to achieve this. For example, our production consists of the most modern technology, which leaves the smallest possible footprint on nature. The power we use comes solely from sustainable energy sources, and we have the goal that our fleet should consist only of electric cars by the end of 2026. As one of the three largest textile printing companies in the Nordic countries, we accept responsibility. It is not just about producing the best products. We also find it particularly important that employees are not subject to one-dimensional, repetitive work and that we ensure that everyone is doing well and receives fair wages.
With responsibility comes consideration – consideration for our fellow people, our employees and the environment – and ensuring that we work with raw materials and create products that are not harmful to the people we work with, who use them and which cause the least possible harm to the environment.
- We have as little waste as possible in our production, and we work continuously to reduce it further
- We have certified the products when it makes sense to do so for us and our customers
- We reduce our power usage and have, for example, replaced all light sources with LED
- We have modern machinery, which uses as little power as possible
- We are continuously striving to reduce our water consumption, and we recycle water when possible in our production
- We have partners – as well as suppliers and customers – that are just as focused on this as we are
– Lots of our products are already STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified and fulfil Appendix 6, and we are working on getting MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX®
- We want less CO2 emission, and since 2021, we operate only with neutrally-produced power from wind turbines
- By the end of 2026, all our company cars will consist solely of electric vehicles
Our textile prints are heading in one direction. A direction away from throw-away culture. This means that our highest durability print will outlast the clothing, so you won’t need to throw away the clothes prematurely because the print cracks, tears, loses colour, etc. Repeated tests show that our print beats the textile when it comes to durability, and this is therefore our warranty when you buy ElastoSoft and UltraFlex.
About one fifth of Denmark’s flora and fauna species need places to live because of a shortage of forests. Something needs to be done about that, which is why Knivholt Hovedgård is planting 6 hectares of new forest. We are supporting the project, so as to expedite the establishment of the forest.
Approx. every fifth flora and fauna species is endangered in Denmark because just 3% of our forests consists of wild nature. Wild nature is home to numerous species of animals, and it is fertile soil for the Danish plant species.
More wild nature = more habitats for animals and plants. We need more habitats, which is why we are supporting a project in Hals – a project that will restore 180 hectares of bog, where flora and fauna can thrive.
To ensure that we make a difference in the world we live in, we have chosen to focus primarily on UN Sustainable Development goal no. 12, but also 13, 14 and 15.
At NS System, we need to move towards only using sustainable and organic commercial goods which fully or partially are made from recycling, both with respect to textiles and also the raw materials for production of logo prints. We focus on durability, which should lead to fewer products being thrown away, and we also recycle all our paper, cardboard and plastic.
No later than 2026, at least 50% of the products we buy must be fully or partially produced of recycled materials.
No later than 2030, we should be able to recycle 90% of our raw materials. We must make sure that the raw materials we use do not contain harmful substances, and we will work on making products that can be recycled, in close collaboration with partners within circular recycling and our suppliers of raw materials. In collaboration with recycling companies, we will make sure our waste, defective products, etc. are recycled and get a new life.
We will reduce our carbon emissions using sustainable energy and by avoiding fuel. We want to use sustainable energy which is Co2-neutral when possible. We want to assume responsibility and do our part.
No later than 2022, we must use sustainable CO2-neutral energy in production and for heating. We will ensure this by only using power from Danish wind turbines, acquiring new, energy-efficient heat pumps for heating the company, and using newer machinery.
All company cars must be electrical by 2026.
At NS System, we work only with raw materials that are not harmful to life below water. This consists primarily of water-based dyes with which we produce transfers, and we do not release contaminated water that can harm marine life.
Our dyes must be biodegradable by 2026. The dyes with which we make logos must be degradable in, for example, waste water from washing machines, so that they do not adversely affect the water environment and do not pollute our water and oceans.
No later than 2026, we must reduce our water consumption by 25%.
We work only with raw materials that are not harmful to life on land. We do not use harmful chemicals and do not emit pollution. Our transfers are produced primarily with water-based dyes. We thus do not adversely affect the earth’s ecosystem.
No later than 2030, we must be able to recycle 90% of our raw materials.
No later than 2026, we must support at least one project in the Nordic countries which helps bind CO2 emissions. In this regard, we will monitor the available options for binding CO2 emissions, thus reducing pollution of the atmosphere. This could be swamp areas in the Nordic countries, promoting the planting of new trees and similar.
