Friendly to nature. And you.
At Jensen, we have a long and proud tradition to uphold. We cherish our roots and still manufacture all our beds in Svelvik - just like we have always done. It is important to us that our operations are as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible - for our environment, our employees, our customers and for future generations.
For us it goes without saying that the beds we develop for the future should have the best possible sleep comfort, but we also feel a great responsibility to make products that promote health, do not harm environment and have the longest possible life cycle.
In the process of obtaining the Swan label, all relevant environmental impacts related to the choice of raw materials, product manufacture, use of chemicals and recycling are carefully assessed.
The Swan is making increasingly strict demands on us as producers. This is good for the environment, for you and for your health. And it means that we at Jensen are constantly looking for better materials and smarter solutions for our products. This should not compromise quality and comfort, but should bring us closer to the most responsible production methods possible.
We already do a great deal.
We are very selective when it comes to the choice of materials and only work with suppliers that meet our quality and production standards. To avoid waste, we order fabrics in special sizes to fit our beds, so that there is as little waste as possible.
The Supreme collection in particular consists of recyclable and reusable fabrics. And of course, all fabrics carry the Swan label. In addition, the wools used in our collection are recyclable and reusable, and in principle environmentally friendly.
The wood used in our frames comes from FSC® certified forests, and 30% of the aluminium used in the springs has been recycled. We have, of course, made the sustainability pledge and reduced the use of plastics by 16 tonnes in 2020!
Surfaces made of wood, metal or fabric are treated without unhealthy flame retardants or other harmful chemicals. And the beds undergo an AEH test for ergonomics, hygiene, climate and sustainability at the neutral Swiss test centre Good Night's SleepLabs.
Our products are manufactured in Norway and have good durability, with a five-year full guarantee and a 25-year guarantee against frame or spring breakage on all beds.
And we still have more to do.
We know that we have to be even smarter to meet new, future demands. For example, the requirement that more parts of the beds can be replaced to extend their life cycle, the requirement that we must produce our product in an even more energy-efficient way - requirements that call for new guarantee conditions, traceability markings and circular design. We must consume less and ensure that our products have the longest possible life cycle. We promise to do our best to meet future demands for sustainable production. For nature and for you.
