XV Production takes part in shaping a new sustainable fashion and textile industry.
By offering design for longevity, as well as design for reuse and circularity, we constantly adopt new circular and innovative business models.
From 2021, XV Production has framed measurable goals for its sustainability work. This concerns, among other things, carbon dioxide consumption, electricity consumption and chemical handling. XV sees this as an important step to constantly be kinder to our planet and the people who live on it.
How we work in consideration of Agenda 2030:
In order for XV Production to be run as an operation that is within the boundaries of the planet, the company need to continuously evaluate and minimize their resources. For XV Production, the primal part are about minimizing the environmental impact that takes place in the production process. Through constant effectivization, and by upholding high standards linked to the possible new materials used in the factory, as well as maximizing the positive influence that new materials may possess from a re-generatively perspective.
Through a local connection to Borås, XV Production is able to contribute to managing a cultural heritage (the textile craft) in a sustainable perspective. As well as influencing future entrepreneurs and workforce in the textile industry to act and think more sustainable, and to start reducing the social and ethical risks that are very present in today's textile industry.
XV Production works actively to increase equality and inclusion internally within the organisation, the communication and through offering products and services that provides for an inclusive design. XV Production want to act as a role model for equal leadership through acting as an entrepreneurial business and inspire others. As advisors for other businesses as well as students, XV are able to contribute to knowledge transfer about inclusive design processes.
XV Production work with recycled materials and ensures that these materials does not affect people and planet in a negative way. XV Production also offers knowledge transfer about possible risks that comes with the recycled materials, as well as knowledge about which material that suits which type of product when upcycled, through a quality and environmental perspective.
XV Production engage in a circular business model, which is based on the concepts of textile re-design and remake. Through re-design and mending the lifespan of the textiles can be prolonged. XV Production also offers knowledge transfer and guidance for customers, with the goal of a better understanding for the circular design process, to create a circular offering.
