In doing this VAUDE has made another contribution to the self-imposed goal of global climate neutrality by 2024.
Green Shape — VAUDE Performance Cycling Clothing Made From Sustainable Materials

Behind the own brand Green Shape label, introduced in 2010, there is a wide-ranging catalogue of criteria that must be met for the product to carry this environmental label. In the manufacturing process VAUDE observes fair working conditions and compliance with ecological standards throughout the entire supply chain. The assessment criteria are rigorous and transparent. They are continuously checked and include the whole lifecycle of the product — from design, through production, to care, repair and sale. VAUDE is very proud that in 2019 98 % of the clothing collection and 83 % of the entire range could be given the Green Shape label.
