[...] Despite the small size of the company, the VAUDE brand is a strong, successful and trusted brand among all of its stakeholders.” reports the jury’s verdict.

Successful sustainability brand positioning

For years, VAUDE has pursued a consistent sustainability approach, which is implemented and lived out in all divisions. The company proves that socially and environmentally responsible business practices can also be economically successful. "We are positioning ourselves clearly and comprehensively as a sustainable brand. We implement this everywhere, in product development as well as in logistics and human resources. The expense that this involves is enormous. But we are convinced that it makes sense and is worthwhile in the long term. The results can already be seen: public perception of our commitment is growing dramatically and the VAUDE brand stands for these values," said Antje von Dewitz.

This has been confirmed by numerous surveys and market research results in which VAUDE regularly takes first place when it comes to credibility, sustainability and ecology. Last but not least, the fact that sustainability can also be an economic success factor is confirmed by the company’s sales performance, which has been above the industry average for years.

Sustainable ahead
Derived from our company vision, sustainable action is at the heart of our value system and our day-to-day operations: from a social, environmental and economic point of view. And this philosophy carries over to almost our entire product range.
