Sustainability by Svensson
At Svensson, we believe in taking responsibility for our environment and our community
since we have lived and worked in the same place for more than 130 years.
By setting strict requirements on raw materials and by owning the entire manufacturing process, we control the entire production chain from the yarn used to the finished product. That means we know how the finished textile was produced, what it contains and what characteristics it has.
Our ambition is to develop better sustainable textile solutions in the long-term that have a positive impact on our own as well as our customers’ consumption of energy and water. Our management system and its processes should be driven according to the principle more with less under safe conditions and according to current legislation.
By setting high standards on raw materials and by owning the entire manufacturing process, we control the entire production chain from yarn to finished product. This means that we know how our products were produced, what they contain, and what properties they have. Our ambition is to develop better sustainable textile solutions in the long term that have a positive impact on our own as well as our customers' consumption of energy and water. Our operating system and its processes must be operated according to the principle: more with less, under safe conditions, and according to current legislation.
Reducing the carbon footprint
With over 20,000 hectares of Svensson climate screens installed in greenhouses worldwide, Svensson screens save an estimated energy production equivalent to that of three to four nuclear power plants per year. A saving of such extreme is a sizeable contribution towards reducing the carbon footprint globally.
Enabling customers to save energy is one way of contributing. Another is to reduce the environmental impact of our production, also a top priority for Svensson. For us, the sight has always been set on a sustainable future.
Research and development
Our research and development department continuously explore new materials and processes to evolve in the sustainability dimension. We collaborate with the best research institutes, universities and various partners in our development process. Consciously growing together.
