Green initiatives

For mpDenmark, the environment, climate and sustainability are important - it is an incorporated part of our core values and a natural part of our strategy.

We continuously work to optimize the sustainability of our production and to improve our products through green measures.

Sustainability is a topic that we in the house work with on a daily basis. We know that we can always improve, and we develop continuously.

100% owned factory in Latvia


Own value chain with own 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.

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. mpDenmark continues to optimize production with new initiatives towards more sustainable production.
