Bergans of Norway has is always in favour of innovative and forward thinking material choices. We are happy to feature a piece of their recycled wool range at the GRV Showcase on transparent sustainability communication with a special focus on wool! Visit us in Hall A4 in the CSR hub and join the GRV Transparency Tour on Tuesday the 30.1.2018 to hear them speak.

Recycled Wool

“Wool has always been a central part of our material range – as it has perfect features and is a natural and renewable material. In our home market Norway wool has always been the self-evident choice for generations.

Nowadays we use more and more recycled wool and would like to show some product examples. Using recycled wool reduces the footprint of a product enormously, as for example all greenhouse gas emissions during farming are already “priced in” if the wool is being used once again. Last year we conducted a study comparing the footprint of virgin and recycled materials and the result was a massive reduction in natural costs by using recycled wool. This way we can use these natural resources much more efficiently.”
