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.

The WMF environmental concept “EnvPro@WMF”

A comprehensive environmental project

Talking about the climate crisis is one thing, taking action is another. Our environmental concept “EnvPro@WMF” is applied in all business areas. The comprehensive environmental project integrates the sustainability approach into the strategy of the individual business units and includes well-founded topics and projects which are linked to clear facts.

Sustainable working methods

Working methods in harmony with our environment

EnvPro@WMF is in line with Groupe SEB’s guidelines and reflects the ideas for a better future as well as the Group’s environmental process and eco-design guidelines. The breakdowns included in the concept give all departments and employees a clear understanding and define future working methods that are in harmony with our environment. Furthermore, EnvPro@WMF also supports the current management systems ISO 14001 and ISO 50001.

A clear concept

Above all, our strength lies in the trust that our customers, trading partners, suppliers and employees place in the Group and its brands. We want to meet these expectations with active measures.
