CSR and Sustainability
At Jobman, we place great emphasis on sustainability and take responsibility for how our operations affect both people and our planet. Of course, we hope that you are satisfied with our products and also with us as a company.
As a part of New Wave Group, we pursue an active sustainability work towards a vision of sustainable growth where business solutions are not only financially profitable, but also sustainable from a social and environmental perspective.
What makes the biggest difference is how we conduct our everyday business. That is why we integrate sustainability into our core operations and processes. The work includes, amongst several things, improved working conditions in production countries, a progressive work with chemicals and streamlining transport and logistics.
We invite you to take part of our work at group level with CSR and sustainability. More information is available in New Wave Group Sustainability Report, where we highlight important activities, achievements and ambitions for the future.

Oeko-Tex® is an international standard based on a voluntary commitment and which sets strict requirements on the substan- ces that can be used in clothing. To obtain the certificate, all parts of a garment must be approved in an independent test.
Many of Jobman’s products are certified according to Oeko-Tex® Standard 100. This means that the product does not contain substances that can be harmful to humans when in contact with the skin. Of course, this has a positive impact on the global environmental issue.
