Vaude Academy for sustainable business
Share knowledge. Move more.
What is the
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.

Market Intelligence & Trend Scouting Manager
»Lisa Fiedler as keynote speaker at our Trend Camp 2020 was able to perfectly underline our motto this year "Sustainable innovation for the future of mobility". By explaining how VAUDE became the most sustainable brand in Germany, the speech was very inspiring and motivating and could open new perspectives for Continental. Thank you 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.«
