Europe is our largest sourcing region, where currently 65% of our garments and materials are manufactured. Besides Europe, our key sourcing country is China, followed by Peru and India. From Asia and South America, Rodebjer priorities and plan for shipping with boat or train and from Europé, by truck. Rodebjer operate shipping of goods to and from our warehouse in Borås, Sweden, using one main partner with intermodal solutions, joint loading and with a clear standard of achieving the highest degree of filling possible for each transport.
Our packing and branding materials are, in all aspects possible, made from sustainable materials, either recycled, organic or certified. Additionally, we are removing as many polybags from our supply chain as possible.
We carefully plan and control our textile manufacturing, striving to avoid the issue of leftover fabrics. Any surplus fabrics left from production is either reused for coming collections or sent to our fabric reseller Rekotex. Rekotex ensures that surplus fabrics from production don’t end up as waste by reselling deadstock to a discounted price.
Office, store and warehouse practice
Rodebjer believes that the strive for sustainability needs to be actively implemented into each part of the organization. Hence, our stores, head office and warehouse therefore actively seek to minimize the environmental impact by encouraging best practice of energy use, waste management and recycling.
