A sustainability department that scales with your brand.

Bergstrand Consultancy helps growing brands cover all aspects of sustainability before they are at the size where they need to hire an in-house team.

Our consultants embed themselves within your organisation to understand your needs inside out.

We have helped rapidly growing brands set their sustainability strategy, created sustainability requirements for suppliers and managed the implementation.

We also assist with collecting necessary data to calculate CO2-emissions, creating regular sustainability reports and ensuring compliance with incoming EU and global legislation.

Through close collaboration, we keep our clients up to date with the latest within fashion and sustainability, as well as providing guidance towards circular design and regenerative supply chains.

Getting started on your sustainability journey with help from our specialists starts from 10 000 SEK / month.

Sustainability Strategy for Fashion and Textile

Every company needs to have a clear strategy on how to minimise their negative impacts.

Bergstrand Consultancy helps brands define their sustainability strategy in line with their company values.

We create strategies and set clear supplier requirements. Our scope covers working conditions, environmental requirements, chemical usage, animal welfare and packaging guidelines.

Fashion Design for Circular Economy

As a part of the EU Green Deal, the European Union (EU) has set a target to become a circular economy by 2050. In fashion, that change from linear to circular has to start at the idea and design stage.

Bergstrand Consultancy facilitates new design mindsets for fashion. We help designers and product developers transition their skills towards circular fashion design.

Our workshops and education programmes help companies adopt circular economy principles. From design, to materials and trims, packaging, zero-waste production, up-cycling, longevity and end of life.

Circular Fashion Design Workshops

The shift from a linear to a circular economy in fashion has to start at the design stage. We hold workshops for design and product developers on Design for the Circular Economy with hands-on, practical sessions that make it energising to apply circular design principles to the design process.

Reducing Impact from Fashion Production

The majority of the emissions from fashion companies occur at the production stage. In order to lower emissions, we need to know where in the supply chain they occur.

Bergstrand Consultancy helps fashion companies create viable options and strategies to reduce negative environmental and social impacts in their supply chains.

We can also lead or assist with the work to collect data in order to calculate the company’s emissions.

Sustainable Supply Chain Optimisation

Bergstand Consultancy helps to improve existing supply chains and creates frameworks to increase traceability.

We work with our extensive network of farmers, producers and manufacturers to create supply chains that benefit the people, the planet and the final product. From raw materials to assembly, packaging and trims.

We work with all materials and can best advise which are ‚Äėpreferred' or ‚Äėdiscouraged‚Äô from an environmental, social and animal welfare perspective.

Ethical and Regenerative Wool Specialist

Wool is a wonderful material that is versatile, renewable and natural. Wool usually gets a poor environmental score when companies start calculating the environmental impact of the materials they use.

Bergstrand Consultancy can improve your company’s wool footprint. We work with a network of growers from Australia and New Zealand to Europe that practice regenerative farming and value animal welfare. We work with all types of wool, from super-fine merino to coarser wool considered to be a by-product.

Bergstrand Consultancy helps companies build traceable and local wool supply chains. From farm to finished product, with the lowest possible environmental impact.

Regenerative Wool Workshops

Wool is a wonderful material that is natural, renewable and versatile. But much of the wool produced in the world is being thrown away. How can we use local wool that is considered a by-product?
