VAUDE

VAUDE

In its beginnings in 1974, the German, and still completely family owned VAUDE was primarily concerned with mountain equipment hence the brand’s mountain logo. Today, although mountaineering remains one of its driving forces, an elaborate product range also encompasses items for bike sports, backpacks, sleeping bags and tents along with a host of accessories. VAUDE, as industry trend-setters for green manufacturing processes and products and with an aim of becoming Europe’s most environmentally friendly outdoor brand, have strong environmental ethics which have been acknowledged through an impressive set of awards. This includes the ‘bluesign standard’ – a rigid set of good practice tests which controls the whole textile manufacturing chain .In 2001 Vaude led the way in producing the world’s first entire product range with adherence to blue sign standards. Additionally VAUDE were the first outdoor industry chain to be accredited with the EU Eco Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) award. VAUDE’s social conscience is as strong as its environmental one with its commitment to equal opportunities, workers’ childcare facilities and involvement in community projects. This commitment to ethical practice has also seen them accredited through such organisations as the Fair Wear Foundation. Producing affordable performance outdoor kit and clothing which is particularly tough and durable is part of VAUDE's commitment to sustainability, while its innovative mindset continuously provides consumers with truly green options for their adventure and leisure pursuits. The ‘Green Shape’ range flies the brand’s flag for environmentally friendly products, manufactured from responsibly sourced eco-friendly materials and with full regard to environmentally responsible manufacturing processes. It currently makes up 73% of its entire clothing range and 21% of its backpacks, tents, sleeping bags and footwear range; the goal is for 80% by 2015.
