Mission and responsibility

Our aspiration: "Made in uvex"

The sustainability goals of the uvex group include the following areas of responsibility: ecology, economy, working conditions and human rights, employees and society as well as product. A particular focus here is on the expansion and modernization of our production facilities. When our customers choose uvex, we want to be sure that our products meet our high quality standards. We ensure this with our principle "Made in uvex": From the product idea and development to production and sales, the entire value chain is in our hands. Carried out and supported by our own production facilities, many of them in Germany and Europe.

Now and in the future: uvex for CO₂ neutral growth

We have set ambitious goals, particularly in the area of CO₂ reductions, and we are aiming for CO₂-neutral growth in the near future. In the past three years, the uvex group has already demonstrated that this goal is not just a vision: thanks to our sustainability efforts, the company's CO₂ emissions were significantly reduced. In some plants, up to 63 % CO₂ has been saved since 2016. A development with which we want to set an example in the industry. For our future – protecting people.

„ 

We have been producing and selling high-quality products for the protection of people in sport, leisure and work for over 90 years. And if you want to protect people, you have to take responsibility. It is precisely from this mission that our obligation derives to act in a sustainable, social and socially- responsible manner.
