We love the outdoors – hiking in the mountains, biking through forests, rock climbing, water sports of any kind...whether in summer or in the snow – it’s our absolutely favorite playground. We want to keep our impact low to protect the planet – for ourselves and for our children – and we hope you do too!
VAUDE has supported the German Alpine Club (DAV) for years as a partner, in particular in the field of nature and environmental protection. The DAV is not just a sporting association; it’s also a recognized nature protection association. Environmental education and nature-friendly mountain sports have a high priority in the DAV and at VAUDE. And in our own courses and events we want to lead by example.
Alpine landscapes are particularly sensitive natural areas. But also central uplands, tidal flats, and on adventures in the big wide world – if everyone joins in, we all benefit:
Just imagine: One-quarter of total energy consumption in Germany is used for mobility! And of this, 43% – the largest share – is for holiday and recreational transport.
Always ask yourself whether you can get something done without using the car – or by carpooling, such as with www.flinc.org. Of course, this includes the daily commute to work as well. VAUDE is setting a good example here – more at Eco-friendly Transport
