We are an international lifestyle brand that has been standing for innovation, quality and unique design since 1985. At the same time, sustainability determines our daily actions with the goal of being a sustainable brand. Join us on our journey.
The affinity with natural materials is part of our brand claim. We see the use of sustainable and durable materials as a matter of course. In addition, we promote initiatives to raise awareness in the use of our products. In the long-term campaign "Use me twice, so our world stays nice", we encourage people to use our high-quality paper gift bags more than once.
As a family-run business, we have a social responsibility. It is up to us, together with partner organisations and suppliers, to take an active role in encouraging fair working conditions in our supply chain. For this, we are a member of the UN Global Compact, the world's most important initiative for responsible corporate governance.
We are a climate-neutral company and want to remain so permanently. To achieve this, we eliminate, reduce and compensate for our CO2 emissions, starting with our corporate headquarters all the way to the supply chain. As part of the organisation Leaders for Climate Action, we would like to motivate many other well-known brands to adopt a sustainable lifestyle and conscious use of resources.
ARTEBENE's philosophy is determined by a liberal and open-minded attitude. We unite and promote internationality, individuality and diversity. As a supporter of UN WOMEN and PLAN INTERNATIONAL, we are committed to gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls worldwide.
The protection of the underwater world and its endangered species is particularly important to us at ARTEBENE. Our own passion for diving has led to a growing interest in projects such as the planting of our own ARTEBENE coral garden in the Maldives together with the Marine Lab Center and the Red Sea Project in Egypt, which work to protect and preserve the biodiversity of marine ecosystems.
We are significantly reducing our emissions. This is achieved through the reduction of shipments by air, our shipping service provider's climate-neutral transports and offering our employees to work from home flexibly.
We work on sustainable packaging solutions both in-store and online. Where possible, we pursue the approach of completely avoiding product packaging. As part of the "No plastic bag, let's keep our planet green" initiative, we have already freed entire product groups from plastic packaging.
We are consistently pursuing the use of renewable energy sources. Through a long-term energy programme, we are expanding the improvement of our energy efficiency. We purchase green electricity and have already switched parts of our vehicle fleet to e-mobility.
