100% owned factory in Latvia
In 2009, mpDenmark built its very own factory in Latvia close to the capital Riga. The factory is 100% owned by mpDenmark, and this is where the production of the vast majority of the products takes place. At the factory, there are approx. 80 colleagues and in addition 152 specially developed knitting machines, which contribute to production every day.
In Latvia, a wide range of quality socks and tights are produced all year round. Each pair of socks or tights passes through 16 pairs of hands before they are ready to be distributed to retailers.
For mpDenmark, the environment, climate and sustainability are important, and we have a continuous focus on reducing our climate and environmental impact.
We continuously work to optimize the parts of the value chain that we can control in order to improve our production. For example, we strongly aim to design and produce products that are of good quality and that have a long life span, so that we can minimize consumption in the world.
Climate impact and sustainability are topics that we work with in the house on a daily basis. We know that we can always improve, and that we develop and improve continuously.
Continuous efforts to reduce the environmental footprint
In 2017, mpDenmark invested more than 2 million EUR in modernizing and expanding the factory and now has a top class production facility. In 2021, solar panels were installed to produce electricity and reduce CO2 emissions.
carbon footprint reduced by more than 100 tonnes per year
mpDenmark strives to create a value chain that impacts and damages climate and environment as little as possible. Through targeted measures, it has been possible to reduce the CO2 footprint by more than 100 tonnes per year compared to 2016.
