Your VAUDE products should offer reliable protection from heat and cold; wind, rain and the sun; help you to enjoy nature and achieve your best. They should accompany you for years on your outdoor adventures.
We select the materials for our products carefully so that you get the best product for your activity.
In addition to a product’s technical design, what really counts is the materials and technologies used to make it. At the same time, these functional materials and technologies also have a significant direct and indirect impact on the environment, for example:
Performance coupled with responsibility
Good training and the right materials influence fun and safety in the mountains.
We set standards for environmentally friendly products throughout the industry with the VAUDE Green Shape criteria. Other brands are welcome to join us!
The VAUDE Material Policy applies to all of our products – our voluntary commitment to sustainable materials.
Transparency throughout the supply chain is important, but it is often non-existent in textile production. Therefore we are working actively with the federal government’s Partnership for Sustainable Textiles as well as on the development of the Higg Index. This international databank is used to measure environmental and social aspects. See more here
