Swedish Stockings
They claim to be the only sustainable hosiers brand as of 2018.

Excerpts from the sustainability section of their About:
"Pantyhose is a petroleum product and one of our biggest consumables. The industry is huge and the production itself uses non-renewable fossil fuels and require a huge amount of energy and water to produce. This extremely large process is very harmful to the environment and most pantyhose are designed to be worn once and then replaced, and so contributing to textile pollution - the third most polluting industry in the world (after oil and agriculture).

Swedish Stockings is created from the by-product of other nylon products that is non-biodegradable. The production process is a lot less complicated than traditional nylon production and we are consistently looking for cleaner ways to produce - conserving or reusing water, decreasing emissions, reducing and recycling waste. From this highly efficient recycling procedure we have reduced energy and water consumption by:
- 87.6% less energy
- A savings of water 18.M3/ton yarn

We want to break the current production of pantyhose - to produce beautiful and long lasting stockings.
- A large part of our production is solar powered
- Our factories are zero waste
- All water used in dyeing is purified and treated"

Vultus - Eliminating waste in farming
"Vultus offers a satellite system for precision farming. The technology enables farmers around the world to grow healthier plants at a lower cost and significantly reduces environmental harm.

Our globally available technology aims to combat the over-fertilization of the soils by analyzing the specific nutrient needs within the fields and providing farmers with detailed nitrogen recommendations. These recommendations can save up to 40% of fertilizer usage, which significantly improves farmers profitability and drastically reduces waste in farming.
Plant Health Analysis
Quantify the performance of your fields, understand variations within them, and detect issues with our comprehensive geometrically, radiometrically and atmospherically calibrated satellite imagery.
API integration with Farm Management Systems
Our analysis is solely available as an application programming interface (API) service optimized for Farm Management Systems (FMS). This partnership-based model allows the FMS provider to enhance their platform through added value of Nitrogen recommendations and Plant health analysis to farmers and helps them gain new revenue streams through our plugin API."

The Natural Step - Accelerate the transition to a sustainable society
NPO founded in founded in Sweden in 1989 by Karl-Henrik Robèrt.

They attempt to draft the following definition of sustainability:

"The Four System Conditions of a Sustainable Society - A Science-Based Definition of Sustainability:

-> Framework For Strategic Sustainable Development revolves around a robust, science-based definition of sustainability. “Robust” means that the principles contained in this definition are both necessary and enough to achieve sustainability. They are also applicable to any activity at any scale and they don’t overlap (each principle covers its own domain).
Scientifically ... four system conditions ... basic sustainability principles:

In a sustainable society, nature is not subject to systematically increasing …

1. … concentrations of substances from the earth’s crust (such as fossil CO2 and heavy metals),

2. … concentrations of substances produces by society (such as antibiotics and endocrine disruptors),
3. … degradation by physical means (such as deforestation and draining of groundwater tables),

4. ... in that society … there are no structural obstacles to people’s health, influence, competence, impartiality and meaning."

They developed the ABCD PROCESS to help interested companies to apply the rules for sustainability to their core business model, to improve long-term value creation. Steps:

A. Awareness: ‘whole-systems’ definition to build a vision

B. Baseline assessment: Conduct a sustainability ‘gap analysis’ of the major flows and impacts of the organisation. Assist organisations to identify critical sustainability issues, their business implications, and strategic opportunities for change.

C. Creative solutions: Innovative ways to realize vision by re-shaping mission, strategy and organization.

D. Devise a plan: Milestone plan with first steps, “low hanging fruits” and longer term planning."
