In 2013, we became known as a “bluesign system partner,” and we are working hard to achieve the figure of 100 percent. Environmental work is part of our soul and our DNA. It is important to remember that what is good for the environment is also good for our children, says Maria Frykman Forsberg, president of ISBJÖRN.
