Anthesis provides support to House of Dagmar

Posted at January 15, 2020 | Categories : News |

Anthesis Sweden is part of Anthesis Group, which is a global sustainability services and solutions consultancy. Anthesis Group currently has around 500 employees and offices in 16 countries all over the world. The company’s access to this global network of experts in a wide range of sustainability areas is a unique strength. Collaborations with colleagues around the world allow us to share knowledge and increases the value we deliver to our clients.

We have previously showcased a project which our colleagues in the UK have been working on for a client based in Sweden. We would now like to present another project with a Swedish based client. Thanks to Anthesis’s global expertise in sustainable apparel, Anthesis UK has been working with House of Dagmar as a client. The project included providing support to House of Dagmar and 12 other fashion retailers and brands as part of the European Clothing Action Plan. Anthesis’s role was to support ECAP participants in developing evidence-based strategies to support the uptake of more sustainable fibres and, consequently, reduce the environmental impact of clothing being sold within the EU market. The impact was that House of Dagmar’s use of sustainable fibres went from 7% in 2017 to 25% in 2019, mostly thanks to organic cotton, recycled polyester, lyocell and recycled wool. Anthesis also provided an in-depth impact analysis of different scenarios for how House of Dagmar could influence products’ end-of-life fate.

Ria Kearney was the project manager at Anthesis Group. Klas Wetterberg, among others, was a part of the team. Klas is originally from Sweden, but he studied in the UK and has been working within the Waste & Resource Sustainability team at Anthesis in London since 2018.
