In sustainability we are excellent.
This is reflected in our certificates.

Sustainable with letter and seal.

ÖGNI, Blue Angel, Austrian Eco-label , EMAS: We can’t get enough of certificates and sustainability seals. Because they reflect our standards. Because they show that we don’t just talk, but also act. And because they spur us on to constantly look for new ways to become even more sustainable. The VIOS® Restricted Substance List and the Think! criteria catalogue, whose quality criteria go far beyond conventional environmental standards, serve as strict guidelines. They contain a list of threshold values for chemicals that must not be exceeded – and to which all our partner companies must adhere.

We also participate in the Higg-Index. It shows the sustainability of our products along the entire value chain. Based on this, the Higg index provides indications of the measures we need to take to become more sustainable as a company overall.

Our awards

We are pleased to have received numerous recognitions for our commitment to sustainability:

  • Over 60 variants of our current collections have been awarded the renowned Blue Angel environmental seal.
