Environmental Awareness and Sustainability

Environmental Awareness and Sustainability

We have a long tradition of environmental awareness at WÜSTHOF. The interplay between economy and ecology guarantees the success and therefore future of our business. First and foremost it is about having a sustainable way of thinking and working. That's why we've built a central environmental management department to manage all of the relevant processes within our company.

The WÜSTHOF production facilities in Solingen are amongst the most modern in the world. Our production methods are continually optimized to increase our energy efficiency and use of raw materials, as well as limit wastewater contamination and reduce emissions of CO² and other gases.

The vast quantities of air and water used in production leave the plant completely uncontaminated thanks to an extensive filter system. Plus, we are currently concentrating on recovering heat from the production process and reducing noise emissions. Our commitment to sustainability is constantly being pushed further and further each day.

WÜSTHOF is recognized worldwide as a specialist in outstanding knives. While we are immensely proud of this reputation, we are also proud to produce our knives responsibly.
