MASCOT is an ethically, socially and environmentally responsible company

The 17 global goals

The UN has formulated 17 global goals for sustainable development, which it expects all countries, companies and organisations to meet by 2030. The 17 global goals are common points of orientation, so that all players can realise the global need for business solutions that can help create a sustainable future for the generations to come.

MASCOT and the global goals

MASCOT works with all of the 17 global goals at different levels, and we will continue to develop and intensify our work in this area towards 2030. As part of their workwear production, they want to help eliminate poverty and hunger, ensure health and education for all, and provide decent jobs, among other things.

MASCOT take their responsibility for the environment and people seriously by producing and consuming responsibly. They are now launching a range of T-shirts, sweatshirts and polo shirts made from sustainable materials.

The sustainable alternative

MASCOT presents a new range of sustainable products in two variants: products made from 100% organic cotton and products made from 60% organic cotton and 40% recycled polyester. The new T-shirts, sweatshirts and polo shirts are made from materials that allow customers to choose a sustainable alternative.

Recycled polyester

One variant of the new sustainable products is made from 40% recycled polyester.

Recycled polyester is made from e.g. recycled plastic bottles and other plastic waste, which has been collected and broken down into granulate and spun into new threads. These threads are used to produce textiles. This converts waste into a new resource, which can then be used for producing textiles without impacting the environment.

Products containing polyester have certain benefits compared with pure cotton products: They

  • dry more quickly
  • have a higher level of colour fastness, even when exposed to sweat and sunlight
  • retain their shape better and do not have as great a tendency to shrink
  • have a high level of wear resistance and last longer overall

Organic cotton

Both variants of MASCOT’s sustainable products contain organic cotton.

Organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides and other harmful substances and emits up to 94% less greenhouse gasses than the production of conventional cotton.

Organic cotton is made from seeds, which are not genetically modified, and the weeds from cotton fields are removed manually. This safeguards both the farmland and the farmers who grow the cotton.

As organic cotton production does not use chemicals, there are no adverse effects from wearing the finished product against the skin.
