Nordgreen was founded in 2017 with the vision of becoming the world’s most sustainable accessories brand. The founders envisioned a “proactive” brand that could design meaningful products while making positive changes for the environment. Nordgreen position their products as a physical manifestation of these motivations - with watches, sunglasses and jewellery all designed, produced and distributed with maximum respect for people and the planet. In 2022 they launched “Guardian” - the brand’s take on the world’s most sustainable watch, designed to last for 100 years and based on a thorough environmental impact study - summarised in a white paper which has been made available to the whole industry.
