We are responsible and transparent about everything we do.

Explore our efforts for a better tomorrow.

Respect and Responsibility

The most sustainable thing you can do is not to wear a watch. We want to be the best alternative to that, as we believe that we all have an inherent responsibility to do better. What we did yesterday should be outdone by what we do today and tomorrow forward, to help ensure a lifetime for the generations to come. That is why we see it as our responsibility to create means for giving back through initiatives that facilitate the transition towards a more sustainable tomorrow, with respect towards our communities and the environment.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Every watch sold contributes to a meaningful cause, by letting our customers decide which one resonates with them the most. We strongly encourage that they choose the charity themselves, however regardless of whether that is done, or not, a portion of each watch sold is equally distributed between our partner NGOs.

Throughout the past year, we’ve been continuously inviting our community and stakeholders to take part in our charitable initiatives across our various markets. As a company and a team of caring humans, our values are based upon three main pillars, supported by our ongoing Giving Back Program - health, education and environment, which are reflected by the vision of our three main NGO partners - Pratham UK, Cool Earth and Water for Good.

Sustainability

We aim to produce high quality watches with timeless design, and in doing so, we create long-lasting products. Creating products that aren’t being disposed of or replaced every season, is in the core of our sustainability journey.

In addition, we are working towards transforming every aspect of our business, with the goal of becoming carbon neutral. Nordgreen’s sustainability efforts are invested in a number of ongoing practices that aim to trace the impact of materials’ sourcing and product transporting, find and put in use the most sustainable materials and logistical solutions, ensure full transparency and traceability of our environmental impact, and calculate and offset our carbon footprint.

Supply Chain

TRACEABILITY

We currently have full traceability on all our Tier 1 suppliers and some Tier 2 suppliers, and we have the ambition of achieving full traceability in at least Tier 2 and Tier 3 of our supply chain.

SHIPPING AND LOGISTICS

We wish to minimize our environmental footprint when it comes to the transportation of our products. Due to our products being relatively small in size, we ship a considerable part of
our production via air. While currently we offset our carbon footprint of all our transportation, we are continuously working towards finding even more sustainable solutions for the future.

In 2020 we emitted 663 tonnes via Last mile shipments (from warehouse to customer) and that they have all been offset via the Burgos Wind Project.

PLASTIC OFFSET

In January 2021 we partnered with CleanHub, in order to calculate the offset of our plastic use for every watch sold (including the packaging) and plastic offset for all full time employees, equivalent to the world average of 7 kg per person/month. This way our total offset as an organization will be calculated on an ongoing quarterly basis.

Working Conditions

Our products are manufactured in a Danish-owned watch factory in China. The facility has excellent working conditions, based on Danish labour practices.

Our manufacturer recycles their waste of cardboard paper, plastic and papers, and they trace the factory’s energy and water usage.

Furthermore, a suction duct system has been installed to test the waste air in the assembly area, in order to keep the inside clean, and protect the workers. Our manufacturer has a labour union and an internal employees suggestion box that is handled by the HR, with the purpose of gathering and finding solutions for incoming suggestions.

They follow rules and regulations, according to the Government Labour Laws, to pay wages no later than each month 7th and each employer has publicly paid vacation. The employees are paid monthly wages that are slightly higher than the industry standard. Overtime wages to the employees follow the Government Labor Laws.

Code of Conduct

We are committed to running a responsible and sustainable business. Ensuring that our products are produced under responsible conditions stands at the core of this commitment, and in order to fulfil our ambition, we expect all our partners – suppliers, subcontractors, agents, and other business partners – to operate responsibly and act with integrity, fairness and responsibility in all aspects of their business. With the use of the Code of Conduct, we ensure to select and retain business partners who share our commitment to responsible and sustainable production as defined by internationally agreed conventions, standards, and guidelines. All suppliers are expected to comply with national legislation, regulations, and applicable practices and industry standards as relevant to their business.

Our Head Office in Copenhagen

Our electricity is sourced from renewable energy sources and we use LED lighting and Energy Star-rated appliances in our head office. We are working towards having zero waste in our work space. The paper we use is recycled, and we recycle glass, aluminum, plastic, and paper waste from what we consume.

We encourage our team to cycle to and from work and to take public transportation. In the beginning of 2021 we partnered up with CleanHub to offset all full time employees’ plastic use equivalent to the world average of 7 kg per person/month - on top of the offset of products sold.

Furthermore, our office in Copenhagen is carbon neutral, and in order to do so, we have chosen to support Burgos Wind Project in the Philippines, a UN certified project focusing not only on producing clean energy, but also on leading projects and initiatives with the local governments and communities that promote the protection of the environment.
