ENVIRONMENT & ETHICS


At Georg Jensen Damask, we have a company culture that allows the individual employee to think in an environmentally conscious way. Simple daily routines that save water, heat and electricity have already been implemented, and more extensive energy-saving measures are assessed and implemented on an ongoing basis. We use environment-friendly cleaning agents and eco-labelled copy paper, and the environment is a top priority. In general, we focus on the environment, ethics and safety in our everyday working practices – both external and internal. We make an effort to reduce both pollution and resource use through environmentally aware and responsible operations.

Products

We set high quality standards for our products, which must also at least comply with the applicable statutory requirements and standards. We ensure this through careful selection of materials and ongoing checks to ensure that the products comply with the requirements described in OEKO-TEX Standard 100. The products are tested for harmful chemicals and dyes. Read more about our weaving process here.

Production conditions

Our primary collaboration partners are certified in accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. We have a code of conduct, which describes the conditions we demand that our collaboration partners comply with. In addition to the statutory requirements with regard to the environment and social rights, we lay down stricter requirements in connection with working environment, building conditions, environmental considerations and social conditions. We have an ongoing dialogue with our collaboration partners to ensure good understanding and continued implementation of improvements. We follow the United Nations Guiding Principles on business and human rights in this area. Excess production or discarded materials from production are recycled as much as possible. As an example, we produce rag rugs from leftovers from our production of kimonos and sheets.

Transport

Our hauliers must operate an environmental policy. We focus on having larger and therefore fewer consignments. At the same time, we optimise the content of the individual consignments for the benefit of both our finances and the environment. We use sea and land transportation as far as possible.

Packaging materials

Most of our products are dispatched in cardboard boxes that are reused for storage purposes or further consignments. If they cannot be reused, all packaging materials are recycled in other cardboard production.  To a large extent, we reuse packaging materials internally and sort all waste correctly from an environmental perspective.

About Damask

Georg Jensen Damask is a culture bearer within Danish design tradition as well as the history of craft. Our history is built on proud weaving traditions since 1756, but members of the family behind Georg Jensen Damask have been weavers all the way back to the 1500s.  The weaving is based on a classic design with a focus on functionality and quality both back then and today.

Throughout times we have worked together with some of the most acknowledge weavers, designer and designs as for example Arne Jacobsen, Cecilie Manz, Andreas Engesvik, Margrethe Odgaard and Nanna Ditzel. Furthermore, we have been involved in several projects with the Royal Danish Court and we are proud to call our self-Purveyor to Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark.
