HASSIA Responsibility

Our sustainability promise

AT HASSIA, we are aware of our responsibility
Our responsibility concept is the representation of our comprehensive sustainability claim, the image of our thinking and acting.
The careful use of resources and the mindful treatment of nature and people is very important to us.
Our high-quality products are made for a long service life and are sustainable for that reason alone. We develop in Austria and produce with short delivery routes in Europe. We source most of our materials from Europe. We are always on the lookout for materials that leave a small ecological footprint. We only use certified leathers that are by-products of the meat industry. We use laces made from eucalyptus wood, as well as soles that are made from a high percentage of sugar cane residues.
As a CADS member, we are committed to avoiding substances that are harmful to the environment and health, far beyond the legal requirements. We continuously invest in the use of energy-saving machinery and renewable energies, e.g. a geothermal plant supplies us with green electricity. We use recycled products, e.g. LEFA. We reduce our own waste to a minimum. We collect raw material residues for recycling. Our transport packaging and cardboard packaging come from sustainable, FSC-certified forestry and are used several times.

Our sustainability label

Particularly sustainable products are easy to recognise.

To make it easy to recognise particularly sustainable products, they are given our "RESPONSIBILITY" label.
With our own Code of Conduct, we ensure fair working conditions and high social standards at our production sites. We cooperate exclusively with suppliers and producers who share our core values. Fair wages and legally compliant working hours create an employee- and family-friendly framework.
We speak out against forced and child labour as well as against discrimination and abuse and stand up for humane coexistence.
Support, trust and dialogue are the basis for our cohesion and sense of community.
