The Green shift
Driven by global climate challenges and an increasing global resource shortage, Norwegian business is facing one of its most important changes.
New innovative solutions must come forward and the responsibility for making our purchases more sustainable lies with us all.
This is a common virtue and we, at Syversen AS, want to contribute wherever we can!
Panos Emporio Underwear is GOTS certified.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
Who gets certified?
Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified. All chemical inputs such as dyestuffs and auxiliaries used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria. The choice of accessories is limited in accordance with ecological aspects as well. A functional waste water treatment plant is mandatory for any wet-processing unit involved and all processors must comply with social criteria. The key criteria of GOTS, its quality assurance system and the principles of the review and revision procedure are summarised in this section.
Who is behind?
GOTS is managed by OTA (USA), IVN (Germany), Soil Association (UK) and Joca (Japan),
DEAR DENIER our sustainable hoisery brand - 100%
We want to contribute to a sustainable disruption of the hosiery industry.
Our mission is to design and produce socks and stockings for modern women in an unconventional way by challenging the industry's bad habits and ingrained patterns when it comes to material selection and manufacturing. We use sustainable materials such as recycled nylon and fully traceable natural fibres when producing socks and tights at our zero-waste factories in Italy.
It is widely known that the fashion industry is the world's second most polluting industry only after the oil industry. The production of nylon and nylon tights is a major negative contribution in this regard.
The production process of both nylon and nylon products is detrimental to nature and humans. Large amounts of water, energy and chemicals are used, resulting in high CO2 emissions and pollution of nature as well as hazardous working conditions. But there are alternative approaches.
We have existed since 2012 so we know the industry from the inside and it is not pretty. That is why the last couple of years have been all about creating a sustainable upheaval of the hosiery industry. All of our products are now made sustainably and we are the only company in Denmark and among very few hosiery brands in the world to work with recycled nylon and sustainable manufacturing.
