Made in Germany stands for high quality as well as for great advantages in regard to ecological and social aspects. Producing in Germany is a means to reduce the ecological footprint of the outdoor industry, as transport and distribution channels are shortened and CO2 is saved. Furthermore Germany often has higher environmental constraints for the manufacturing industry than other countries. Those who produce in Germany often have close contact to their suppliers which are in many instances located in Germany as well. Regional ties result in site safety and thus in the protection of jobs in the region. Last but not least, working conditions in Germany are better than in many other countries in the world.
