Clipper A/S cares - we hope you do, too
At Clipper A/S, it is all about making an effort - not just with our products, but also with the way we care for both human rights and the environment.
Since Clipper A/S was established in 1955, the company has grown into an international business with a strong sense of responsibility. In 2012 we joined the UN Global Compact which is a principle-based framework for businesses, stating ten principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption.

Animal welfare is important to us. That's why we use mulesing free wool only.
Since many of our products are manufactured from wool, one of our main focus points is the welfare of the sheep, that supply the wool. That's why we use mulesing free yarn only.
Mulesing is a surgical practice to prevent fly-strike, which is often performed without anaesthetization. Today however, more humane alternatives exist making mulesing unnecessary.
Plan Planet Earth
We would rather go the extra mile to find the right environmental solution than choose the easier and cheaper one.
We are aware of our environmental responsibilities and thus make our production as sustainable as possible. Thus, all of our suppliers comply with the REACH regulations and the STANDARD 100 by OEKOTEX® for raw materials.
Sourcing new suppliers who focus on reducing the use of chemicals, water and dyestuff is always a main focus point. Furthermore, we love slow fashion! With our eternal classics in a quality that offers a longer product life span, we hope to promote a more ethical and sustainable way of consuming.
With respect for the environment.
We have children's welfare at heart
For many years, we have supported Land of Hope - a non-profit organisation fighting for children's rights.
Land of Hope is a voluntary association fighting to save the so-called witch children in Nigeria, where the belief in witches is a big problem. You may already have heard of Anja Lovén, Hope and all the other children, that Anja has saved.
Clipper A/S sponsors a nurse for the orphanage, so the children can get the right care, and so that illnesses can be prevented.
We work responsibly internally as well as externally - because the way our suppliers do business reflects directly on us.
Our strong Danish roots and our commitment to the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact are our starting point when defining our expectations of subcontractors with regard to quality, environment and work processes.
At Clipper A/S, we find it natural to combine good tradesmanship with these high standards. We have long term relations with our suppliers, and we are proud to say that our suppliers generally have workers standards which are higher than required by local legislation.
People - our core capital
What would Clipper A/S be without the people who work here? Well, not much! That's why people are our core capital.
We care for our employees, involve them in our planning and decision-making processes, and ask for their feedback. We welcome an open and honest dialogue and are determined to improve both internal and external working conditions.
As our customer, you can always rest assured, that we respect basic human rights conventions in Denmark and in the countries in which our products are produced, and that we meet fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labour and anti-corruption.
