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.

Acting ethically

As a socially-oriented company, we place great emphasis on providing security, individual development and overall health to employees, suppliers and partners.

Social Sustainability

Meeting our responsibility

Our environmental commitment ranges from issues of biodiversity, through procurement of raw materials, use of natural resources and sustainable packaging.

Environmental Sustainability

Sustainable business

A sustainable economy is one in which the earth’s resources are not used up faster than nature renews them. Profitability is the product of flourishing ecosystems and thriving communities.
Economic Sustainability

Global commitment

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.

Sustainable packaging has to satisfy a range of requirements for us. There is currently no ideal solution which meets all of our requirements. While we continue to research future solutions, Weleda endeavours to use packaging which is as sustainable as possible.
