As a textile manufacturer nestled at the heart of densely populated Switzerland, we were quick to recognise our special responsibility towards the environment. The significance of sustainability for economic activity has fundamentally changed and grown in recent years, not least because of the increasingly apparent climate change. Our customers and product users also expect us to provide transparent information on how we contribute to a future worth living in – today and tomorrow.
This is why we have systematically analysed and examined our sustainability strategy and recorded our current approach and future measures and formulated them in a report.
SUSTAINABLE BY TRADITION
Création Baumann has been making its mark in the textile industry for more than 130 years. Amidst constant change, one thing has always remained the same: our passion for exceptional fabrics — and for sustainable growth.
We follow the guiding principle: Increasing the well-being of people in private and public spaces with textile solutions. People’s needs are the focus of our thinking and we act sustainably in all areas.
With specific measures in the areas of the environment, people and the economy, we secure the future of Création Baumann. As an owner-managed family business, we are dedicated to long-term success. For us, success means making a positive contribution on an ecological, social and economic level. We achieve this by maximising the positive effects of our activity while minimising the negative impacts. We always strive to maintain a balance between the demands of all stakeholders.
ENVIRONMENT - ECOLOGICAL SUSTAINABILITY
PEOPLE - SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY
ECONOMY - ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY
SOARING INTO THE FUTURE
We see socially and environmentally compatible corporate management as an obligation, and we want to continuously improve in this area. By publishing this report and our planned measures, we are consciously engaging with the legitimate expectations of various stakeholders. At least every two years, we will communicate in a transparent manner the measures implemented, progress made, setbacks suffered and new targets and projects.
The focus is on the following focal points:
Ecological focal points: Longevity concept, Climate strategy and Innovative projects or cyclability
Social focal points: Oeko-Tex® standard, Supply chain control, Sustainability training
Economic focal points: Sustainable innovative projects, Systematic strategy process
At Création Baumann, sustainable action runs in the family. Ever since my great-grandfather founded the company in 1886, we have kept our sights firmly on long-term well-being — economically, ecologically and socially. Thanks to this vision, we are now writing the next chapter of our story as the fourth generation.
