  • Innovative techniques, permanent operational enhancements and continuous process optimization have enabled Birkenstock to reduce energy consumption by more than 90% in recent years
  • Any EVA punching scraps left after producing soles are shredded and used for playgrounds or sports grounds or for noise barriers on the motorway
  • All components of the Birkenstock styles, from the buckle to the sole, can be individually replaced or repaired.
  • The family company uses remaining leather to create accessories such as key fobs.
  • By keeping the production site in Germany, Birkenstock is able to ensure that all of the valid environmental guidelines, which are some of the strictest in the world, are met.
