Our SDG Action

Car-Free Day

Germany Obereisenbach, Tettnang, Deutschland
Number of people taking this action: 250 or more
Employees commute to work and go on business trips, products are transported from production facilities to our logistics center and from there to our customers. Mobility is the source of a large percentage of emissions in our globalized world. We have set ourselves the goal of continuing to reduce emissions from transportation and travel.To support this goal we want to #act4SDGs with our VAUDE Car-Free Day here in Obereisenbach.On this day we especially aim to decrease the number of employees who drive to work (alone ) in their car. We want to emphasize alternative options like carpooling, public transport or bikes in order to get to work "clean" and therefore more environmentally friendly. Furthermore, we wish for our employees to be more aware of all the alternative opportunities they have and to use them more often.The best part about this idea is that everyone around the world can easily join.Take the bus, ride a bike, walk or ask your colleague to take you to work. You will realize how comfortable and uncomplicated it is to try other means of transportation and what a positive impact it can have on the environment.
