Vaude Academy for sustainable business

Share knowledge. Move more.


What is the
VAUDE Academy?

Companies are part of society. In this role, we at VAUDE want to take on social and entrepreneurial responsibility. Innovative and sustainable solutions are particularly needed in the textile industry, which is a major driver of global challenges such as the climate crisis or water pollution. That is why we have long been concerned with how we can operate in an environmentally friendly and fair manner. That is our understanding of sustainability. Only if we all act responsibly and with entrepreneurial wisdom can we actually bring about visible social and ecological change. This is why we would like to pass on our experience and share many years of expertise from the transformation process to sustainable management with others.

Markus Risch

Market Intelligence & Trend Scouting Manager

- Continental

»Lisa Fiedler as the main speaker at our Trend Camp 2020 was able to perfectly underline our motto of this year“ Sustainable innovation for the future of mobility ”. By explaining how VAUDE became the most sustainable brand in Germany, the contribution was very inspiring and motivating and opened up new perspectives for Continental. Thanks again!«

dr Nikolina Fuduric

Professor for Sustainable Marketing & Product Management

- University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland

»I visit VAUDE every year with product managers from my certification course (focused on product management) because real transformation happens here. Instead of just talking about sustainability practices, we see, hear and feel how it is done. The absolute highlight is the presentation by Dr. Antje von Dewitz, showing the path to sustainability with all its ups and downs. Antje's joy about the impact of her company is infectious and her personal authenticity is convincing.«
