SUSTAINABILITY wackes
Sustainability – ethical, social and environmental

 

People have grown tired of products that will not last longer than the duration of the conference. They don’t want to contribute to senseless waste of resources, or bad work conditions. That is why we keep close track of where, how, and by whom our products are manufactured, and that it is done in a manner which we – and in the end also you – can account for.

 

Already at the conceptual stage we create products that people benefit from and enjoy. In order for us to recommend a product, it needs to have a purpose and it has to carry out a task. Only in such a way can you get a return on your investment. But from our brand items, we demand more than that:

 

Our environmental concerns

For us, following the law is not enough. We want to contribute to a sustainable society. That is why we consider everything ranging from material selection and the manufacturing process to packaging and transport, when we work together with our customers and suppliers towards reducing our environmental impact.
