Sustainability in practice

Sustainability in practice

Wenaas works continuously to improve our design and purchasing practices, and to promote sustainable and high-quality eco-friendly products. We seek to reduce our negative impact on the environment all while considering the entire lifecycle of a product, from design, sourcing of certified materials, production processes to packaging and disposal.

Our eco-friendly products are often made from more durable and environmental materials, with significantly less waste, water, and energy to produce. It also supports and aligns with the global agenda of sustainability - The United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We believe that we are part of the solution, rather than the problem and by promoting these products we ensure fair trade and eco-friendly consciousness in every development step, all with the intention to minimize the product’s total environmental impact.

SPAR work uniform made with Fairtrade-certified cotton

We are both proud and happy to be able to say that, together with SPAR, we, the supplier of their work uniforms, have become the first to produce uniforms in Norway that are Fairtrade-certified cotton. All cotton for SPAR work uniforms is Fairtrade certified, traded, audited, and produced from Fairtrade producers. Together with SPAR and Fairtrade, we ensure that the uniforms are both sustainable and at the same time of very good quality, as the garments still withstand hard use and many washes.

TENCEL™ Lyocell by Lenzing AG

One of the best sustainable alternatives to cotton is TENCEL™ Lyocell. TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are extracted from raw material that comes from wood, a raw material that comes from controlled and certifies forests. TENCEL™ cellulose fibers are botanically of origin and produced in a unique closed loop system minimizing the environmental impact – a process that recovers water and 99.8% of the solvent from production. The water consumption in the production of TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers is 46 l/kg compared to production conventional cotton, which is 994 l/kg.

​​​​​​​The fibers have highly technical properties, efficient moisture management, and gentleness to the skin. Not only does it absorb 50% more than cotton fibers, but the moisture also evaporates quickly making you feel cooler and drier. Garments made with TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers withstand their color after many industrial washes. A great advantage to maintain long-lasting color rendering. This is why we believe that TENCEL™ branded materials perfectly match our sustainability standards, all while enhancing qualitative characteristics for protection and comfort.
