The recent UN report on climate is clear proof that we all need to take urgent action to reduce our climate emissions. We are on a path of creating a more sustainable future within the fashion industry. We have high goals and hope to set an example for the entire industry. Our goal is to reduce our climate emissions by 50% by 2030, and by 2025 offset what we have not been able to reduce, in order to be climate neutral. The same year we will have 100% of our products made in more sustainable materials.
We are fully committed to reaching our goals, although we are humble for the challenge given we are a fast-growing company. We do it for the sake of the future for all of us, of course – but also because that’s just the way we like to do business. Our sustainability work is a fundamental part of how we run our business at NA‑KD. Do you want to join the future of fashion?

THE DREAM TEAM
Working at NA-KD is unlike any other fashion gig. We’re a young company with a start-up mentality and (a borderline insane) hunger to be the best. In less than 5 years NA-KD has become one of the fastest growing fashion e-com brand in the world. And we have a 4 million strong community to prove it. How? We see no limitations, only possibilities. No failures, only learning opportunities. We’re problem-solvers, disruptors and early-adopters. We’re doers. And if you dream of going to work every day to build the next big thing – then welcome home.
