Sustainability Policy Båge & Söner
Båge & Söner loves nature and our dear mother Earth, a love that is also reflected in all our product names. Lisen Båge believes that to have green nature around her is a key to harmony for both body and mind. Båge & Söner are committed to take our environmental responsibility and we strive to be sustainable throughout everything we do from product development to shipping and packaging.
With this commitment in mind, we will:
- We have made a conscious decision to use as many genuine and sustainable materials as possible in our production, such as solid traceable brass, stainless traceable steel and vegetable tanned Swedish leather. The vegetable tanning process takes place without the use of chrome, which is the most environmentally friendly way to produce high-quality leather.
- Minimize the use of plastic in both production and packaging. Our clocks are made in genuine materials to as much extent as possible. Båge & Söner use tempered mineral glass, whereas most alarm clock manufacturers use plastic glass.
- A Båge & Söner alarm clock can always be repaired and we reuse every part of the clock down to the last screw. Our clocks are mounted in the same way old clockmasters have done for centuries and by this the clock can be dismantled when repaired and only faulty parts are exchanged and all others are reused again. By this method clock lasts a lifetime.
- We strive to visit our suppliers and make certain that they work according to our sustainability regulations.
By this policy Båge & Söner recognizes its responsibility towards the protection of the environment, and issues this statement as a commitment of both management and employees to minimizing the environmental impact of its operation. The policy will be reviewed annually by the Båge & Söner team, making sure we are fulfilling its purpose.
