The WMF environment and climate goals
We are aware of our responsibility in terms of environmental and climate protection. That is why we follow the climate strategy and environmental guidelines of Groupe SEB and integrate environmental and climate protection issues into all areas of WMF – from purchasing to production to logistics. We prevent environmental pollution at all our sites, thereby reducing not only the negative environmental impact of the production sites themselves, but also the impact of our products.
