All for the good of the environment


It is our highest aim to protect the environment – our living space and the source for all that we do – in a sustainable and holistic way. Even in the way we derive our raw materials, we pay meticulous attention to the highest (organic) quality, sourcing locally wherever possible.

We do everything we can to reduce our energy consumption, and we have already switched 100% to green power. What's more, we use the highest possible amount of recycled material in our packaging, and work continuously towards further reducing the share of packaging in our products.

Proactive support for animal rights has been an issue dear to our hearts from the beginning. The majority of our products is already vegan. Since November 2020, we have also been on the PETA positive list.

Always a step ahead

It is wonderful to receive recognition for all we have done in terms of sustainability. Especially when it comes from independent juries and institutions. Already since 2016, we have established a solid ranking among the Top 5 for the German Sustainability Award. 

In 2020, we were also recognised for the fifth time in a row for our sustainable and ecological practices as a GREEN BRAND. Even abroad, lavera has won many coveted prizes for sustainable practices, such as "Victoire de la Beauté" in France or the "Free From Skin Award" in the UK.

Here is how we support climate projects

Climate protection projects that help reduce greenhouse gas emissions are invariably also development projects. These projects help people on a local basis and are aligned with the official 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the UN (United Nations).

We balance out our companies CO2 emissions by funding the ClimatePartner forest protection program in Peru (Climate Partner ID: 12310-1610-1001, Nr. 1114). This ensures that the unique rain forest in Tambopata will be preserved. Without the project, the forest would have disappeared in approx. 15 years. 

This initiative preserves not only an irreplaceable animal and plant world but also secures the subsistence and livelihood of some 400 families living in the 300,000 hectares in the vast rain forest in the Amazon region. 

In addition to preserving the forest and carefully handling the natural resources of the forest, the project seeks to enable a stable income for the inhabitants. For example through the build-up of micro-enterprises and the production of soaps and oil, and the cultivation of sustainable Brazil nuts.

With our funding, we seek to not only protect the forest but also to call attention to the fact that forest areas in the Amazon region are vital and precious habitats worthy of preserving.

 "Thanks to the project, we can take care of our forest and take care of ourselves. Everything will be better from now on."

Our second climate protection program is located in Kenya (Climate Partner ID: 12310-1610-1001, No. 1008/1075). Here we are working with our partner, ClimatePartner, to provide clean drinking water to the people there, using water filters. 

Thanks to lavera's commitment, the level of disease has already been reduced by 41% over the past few years, and 28 million litres of clean drinking water have been provided.

You can find out more about the climate protection projects on the ClimatePartner website.

Trust is a good thing, but control is a better one.

As a family-run, independent SME, we have the freedom to organise our company in ways that best serve our sustainable company objectives. For example, with a closed-loop competence and value chain. The entire research, the entire development, and the entire manufacturing process of our products take place here in the Hanover region. This approach enables us not only to guarantee the highest level of quality but also to plan each individual step in ways even more sustainable than in the past. Since the founding of our company in the year 1987, we have been firmly dedicated to the future of our planet, and we are doing all we can to preserve our unique environment the way we found it, for all generations to come.
