The uvex commitment to sustainability is a promise to people and the planet.
Protecting people is the core focus of each brand within the uvex group. As a member since 2001, Heckel aligns itself with this philosophy. When we talk about “protection”, we don’t just mean a person’s physical safety. We also consider the entire environment in which they operate, be that on a social, ecological or economical scale. Through our “protecting planet” commitment, we are making a promise to protect society and the environment. This means that we monitor, evaluate and optimise all the steps in the value creation chain in a comprehensive manner to produce the most durable and sustainable personal protective equipment that we can.
