Gain C-level insights on sustainability (in Danish)
The sustainability tsunami will transform businesses in the next decade. We help our clients become winners in the sustainability race
We have assisted Ege Carpets in developing a new long-term strategy on sustainability aligned with customer needs, market conditions, the SDG’s, trends, and the corporate strategy. Ege Carpets have a long tradition of working systematically with CSR and sustainability on various issues. Therefore, one of the most important tasks was to sharpen the focus on Ege Carpets sustainability efforts going forward. We did this by selecting a handful of lighthouse targets, deselecting others, and applying internal knowledge and expertise across line of business.
“We were very happy working together with kissCSR on our new sustainability strategy. They applied a systematic approach that together with their expertise ensured an effective strategy that is easy to communicate and will have an enormous impact”.
Henrik Schmidt Hansen, Group CSR Director, Ege
When developing the new strategy, we also carried out a value chain assessment, benchmark of contract market customers and competitors, and applied best practice. The new lighthouse targets in the strategy are:
Sustainable carpets: All products must be raised to Cradle to Cradle Platinum certification level and recycled materials must account for 75% of carpet construction by 2030.
From waste to resources: All yarns must be made from recycled or renewable materials by 2030 (50% in 2020).
Closing the loop: All components must be separated and reused by 2030.
CO2-positivity: New technology must not only cover the need for energy but also generate an energy surplus.
Ege Carpets in short:
Ege Carpets is one of Europe's leading companies in regard to design, development and production of unique, high-quality carpets with respect for the environment.
