THE LIGHT OF SUSTAINABILITY - OUR ESG STRATEGY
For us, the focus is above all on people and their needs - this applies to our lighting solutions, to our employees, but also and with regard to social and ecological responsibility. As a family-run company in its fourth generation, it is important to us to act in the interest of future generations. We want to assume responsibility towards society and our employees and make a sustainable contribution to the preservation of an intact environment. Waldmann luminaires are made in Germany - conceived and manufactured in Germany. We produce durable, energy-efficient lighting solutions in Villingen-Schwenningen. This is our clear commitment to Germany as a location and to the Black Forest. We support our employees and are committed to our region.
"Sustainability is not a boring topic, but a task for all of us! That's where we as a family business can get things moving."
An eternal cycle of product and materials: a utopia that we are happy to make a reality. We started with LAVIGO, the first office luminaire (light) to be awarded the Cradle to Cradle® certificate. All the products we have come up with since then have been developed according to these Cradle to Cradle® criteria.
But that's not all. In order to continuously optimise our sustainable actions, we have, for example, been certified according to DIN EN ISO 14001 since 2012 and regularly have ourselves assessed by EcoVadis. But this is not the time to rest. By 2028, we will be a climate-neutral company.
In order to transparently present our activities in the area of sustainability and continuously uncover potential for improvement, we work together with the provider EcoVadis.
EcoVadis is an independent rating agency that provides sustainability rankings for companies in the areas of environmental, social and governance (ESG).
The rating and scorecard issued by EcoVadis provides detailed insights into a company's sustainability performance. EcoVadis has already put round 100,000 companies from 175 countries and 200 industries under the magnifier.
In 2023, EcoVadis again assessed our sustainability activities and awarded us the brozen EcoVadis medal. This puts us among the top 24 percent of the companies evaluated by EcoVadis in the sector "Manufacture of electric lamps and luminaires".
