Sustainable Production Methods

Sustainability is an important issue for us. At VAUDE, we ensure fair production conditions.

The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for environmentally-friendly, functional products made from sustainable and bluesign® certified materials.
Find the Green Shape certified collection for women, men and children in the VAUDE Shop.


Going the eco-friendly and fair route… this is what drives us and at the same time is the matter closest to heart.

We pay attention to environmental compatibility and sustainability throughout the entire life cycle of a product, from design and materials, through production, use and care, to recycling and disposal. Additional information can be found in our Sustainability Report.
