Tradition and innovation are equally important to Weleda. They are the basis for our long-standing commitment to the three pillars of environmental, social, and economic sustainability.
Weleda’s commitment to sustainability
With an expected increase in the world’s population, from seven to nine billion by 2050, the demand for diminishing natural resources is growing. According to the anthroposophic ideas of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Weleda, we must do our best to support an adequate living for everyone today, without compromising the needs of future generations.
Here at Weleda we strive to achieve this by protecting and respecting our environment and its biodiversity, by treating and remunerating employees, partners and communities fairly, and by building an ethical economy which creates, rather than diminishes, value.
The knowledge we have gained from running a fully sustainable business for over 100 years makes our brand, and our products, unique.
As a socially-oriented company, we place great emphasis on providing security, individual development and overall health to employees, suppliers and partners.
Meeting our responsibility
Our environmental commitment ranges from issues of biodiversity, through procurement of raw materials, use of natural resources and sustainable packaging.
Whether it’s through fair trade, biodynamic cultivation, or responsible use of environmental resources – sustainability is part of our roots. In our Annual and Sustainability Report 2018 we outline our sustainability programme for Weleda globally and commit to some comprehensive and ambitious objectives globally until 2022.
