The jury of the GIT SICHERHEIT, consisting of the international professional readership, has awarded Fristads High Vis Green collection with the GIT SECURITY AWARD 2023. Fristads environmentally declared high-visibility collection was able to assert itself against tough international competition and take 2nd place in the "Sustainability" category.
The winners were chosen by the readers of the print magazines and associated online communities of GIT SICHERHEIT, GIT SECURITY EMEA and PRO-4-PRO.com.
Workwear manufacturer Fristads launched two environmentally declared high visibility collections during 2022 made of organic and recycled materials. The Fristads Green High Visibility collections consist of a wide range of garments making it possible for professional workers within road, building & construction, transport and logistics to dress from top to toe in high visibility garments with lower environmental impact – without compromising on safety or quality.
Leading the way in sustainability
Fristads has a long-term goal to lead the workwear industry when it comes to sustainability and broke new ground when it launched the world’s first environmentally declared clothing collection Fristads Green in 2019. All Fristads Green products have an Environmental Product Declaration, an EPD, showing the garment’s total impact on the environment, from construction and material choices to waste and transports.
“I’m proud of the fact that we are the first company that now can offer more sustainable workwear to this large and important group of professional users, and that we continue to work with such a transparent tool as the EPD, showing the garments’ total impact on the environment. Good work clothes should protect people, but not at unnecessary expense of the environment,” said Anders Hülse, Managing Director at Fristads.
Facts: This is Fristads Green High Visibility
Fristads Green High Visibility consists of two collections, one with lightweight garments and one with stretch garments. The Fristads Green High Visibility collections meet a growing demand for high-vis clothing in the transportation and construction industries.
