our goals

We want to contribute to a transformation of the fashion industry into a circular future. That is why we have set ambitious goals for the next 10 years, which include:

  • Our entire value chain must only use renewable energy. At Sandgaard, we will compensate or establish renewable energy plants that make the entire production of our value chain “sustainable” in the field of energy.
  • There must be no waste in our value chain. We want to ensure that there is no waste or waste at ourselves and dealers. In addition, we will fight to establish recycling companies for textiles, so that textile fibers in production and among end users can be recycled 100%.
  • We want to give women the freedom to feel safe and express their own identity. Women are different, have different shapes and are in different phases of their lives. We want to give women the ultimate opportunity to be themselves and give them the clothes that make it possible.

You can see more of our objectives on water, transport, packaging, social fairness, etc. on our roadmap on our website.

2021 was the start of a comprehensive sustainability strategy

In Sandgaard, we have embarked on a sustainability journey that goes far beyond the ordinary. We invite our customers to look over our shoulders so they can become wiser about what we do to become that. Maybe we can even inspire them to make sustainable choices themselves. In 2021, we have:

  • Established ambitious roadmap for the next 10 years
  • Initiated energy-reducing and renewable energy projects that make energy consumption at own facilities 100% renewable
  • Established Zero Waste set-up for clothes in our own organization and for our dealers
  • Initiated recycling scheme for cardboard packaging, which ensures that 70% of all cardboard packaging is reused. The rest is recycled.
  • Initiated big-data activities to understand female forms and produced the ultimate comfortable jeans for women that they go with until they are worn out
  • Prepared life-extending guide for washing and handling our clothes
  • Developed concept for body-normativity
  • The first biodegradable product has been ordered and certification has been initiated

In the following, we will elaborate on our initiatives


  • Production of 1 Cotton T-shirt – requires 1400 liters of clean water, and approx. 10 Kg Co2
  • Production of 1 pair of Jeans – requires 10,000 Liters of water, and 40 Kg Co2
  • Textile production accounts for about 10% of the world’s CO2 emissions, and is one of the biggest sinners
  • We make here in the house approx. 270-300,000 pieces of clothing, emitting between 4 to 4.5 Mio Ton of Co2
  • At the same amounts, approximately 450 Million liters of water are used
  • We use about 22 tons of cardboard annually
  • We use about 5.5 tons of plastic annually
  • We use 17 / 18,000 Kwh Electricity annually
  • We use 17 / 18,000 Kwh Heat annually

Solar cells must make our facilities energy-positive

We are setting up solar cells on our roof as part of our efforts to become CO2 neutral. We take an extra step and make our facilities energy positive. This means that we produce more energy than we ourselves consume.


– a daily struggle for body normativity

At Sandgard, we fight every day to bring a new normal into the fashion industry with a focus on the fact that the normal is the diversity of bodies. We need to point out that bodies are different, look different and are in different phases of life.We have launched a big big data project to better understand women’s bodies and shapes. Thus, we can start the work of creating clothes that are made for women – and not the illusion of women.
