Our planet needs action. And outdoor gear shouldn’t add a burden to the environment. Green shape is our proof that this is possible: Eco-friendly. Fair. And functional.

Green Shape is the VAUDE sustainability label

Green Shape is the VAUDE label for sustainable clothing and gear. Because there is no comparable system that is equally comprehensive and rigorous, we have developed our own seal. After all, every social movement begins with someone taking that first step and not only talking smart, but taking concrete action.

” Thinking with foresight. Being considerate in our dealings with others. Acting from the heart. This is how we can move forward. In outdoor sports. In everyday life. And in the development of sustainable products. Because future generations will only be able to enjoy the mountains and a pristine planet if we conserve what we love.”


Environmentally friendly and fair products

“Show that it’s possible: Gentle on the planet. Fair for the people of the world. And functional for you. That’s what outdoor gear and apparel is all about.”

Our goal: climate-neutrality for all products

“Since 2012 our company headquarters have been fully climate neutral. But that’s not enough for us: In the near future, all our products will be climate neutral as well.”

Forever Yours – Giving our products a long life

“Sustainability and product longevity go hand in hand: VAUDE products are characterized by a timeless design, robust materials and simple reparability.”

Made in Germany

“Designed in Germany and made in Germany: At our headquarters, we manufacture high-quality, waterproof bags and backpacks for bike tours, urban cycling and daily life.

We at VAUDE live up to our values and take on responsibility for the people of the world and the planet itself. We take environmental and social factors into account in everything we do – and we report on this comprehensively and transparently in our Sustainability Report. Check out our history to find out what we’ve already achieved as we’ve followed this path.

With the VAUDE Academy for sustainable management we support other companies and organizations on their sustainable path.

We are particularly proud of the many prestigious awards we have received for our sustainable commitment and innovative products.

We promote diversity because we are convinced that we all benefit from diversity and equal opportunities – and because we are firmly opposed to any form of discrimination. If you would like to work with us to help make the world a better place, come and join our team!

Together we are strong – that’s why we cooperate with like-minded partners such as the German Alpine Association, our athletes and the Albrecht von Dewitz Foundation. In order to advance solutions for global problems such as climate change or microplastics in the environment, we work closely with experts, universities and NGOs and also campaign for our demands at the political level.”
