THE ELE­MEN­TAL COM­PON­ENTS OF SUS­TAINA­BI­LI­TY – AIR

“Sustainability”, “transparency” and “authenticity” are perhaps the most well-known and overused buzzwords in business today. They can be very easy to say, but perhaps not always so easy to put into practice. It’s important to us at NEUBAU EYEWEAR that we do more than just talk about good intentions. We make sure that we use our hands, our hearts and our minds to apply these noble objectives to everything we do, whether it’s the way we power our machinery, source our raw materials or package our products.

We let our visi­ons fly, lift them up with every breath. And what starts as a wind, will grow to a storm.

At a time of unpre­ce­den­ted cli­ma­te chan­ge, resour­ce deple­ti­on and bio­di­ver­si­ty loss, we know it is important to have a clear visi­on and robust stra­te­gies to ensu­re that we are part of the posi­ti­ve chan­ge we want to see. To achie­ve our sus­taina­bi­li­ty goals, NEU­BAU EYE­WE­AR takes every mea­su­re pos­si­ble to redu­ce the envi­ron­men­tal impact of our pro­duc­tion prac­ti­ces. We are awa­re that any form of mecha­ni­cal pro­duc­tion ine­vi­ta­b­ly results in pol­lu­ti­on of the envi­ron­ment, espe­cial­ly our atmosphere. 

We at NEU­BAU have asked our­sel­ves how we can keep our eco­lo­gi­cal foot­print on the atmo­s­phe­re and the air as small as pos­si­ble, loo­king for sus­tainab­le pro­duc­tion opti­ons to reach our self-set goals: local pro­duc­tion, 100% rene­wa­ble ener­gy and zero emissions!

1 Ton per year on CO2 savings

By pro­du­cing over 75% of our demo len­ses inhouse in the heart of Aus­tria, we save at least one ton­ne of CO2 emis­si­ons each year from trans­port alone.

High air fil­te­ring standards

The num­ber for exhaust gases at our head­quar­ters far exceeds the legal requi­re­ments for emis­si­ons reduc­tion, resul­ting in near­ly zero emissions!

90% smal­ler footprint

Our recy­clab­le soft cases, intro­du­ced in 2017, have a 90% smal­ler car­bon foot­print than con­ven­tio­nal hard cases.

Obli­ga­ti­on towards our local neighbours

Our head­quar­ters in Linz is situa­ted in a den­se­ly popu­la­ted resi­den­ti­al area to mini­mi­ze noi­se and air pol­lu­ti­on from our pro­duc­tion facilities.

Solar, wind, hydro­power and biomass

Our head­quar­ters in Linz/​Austria is sup­plied with 100% rene­wa­ble ener­gy, fue­led by a com­bi­na­ti­on of solar, wind, hydro­power, bio­mass and biogas.

Becau­se we have a visi­on and are not afraid to fall. We float and fill the vacu­um bet­ween loo­king good and doing good.

For NEU­BAU EYE­WE­AR, the year 2021 is all about Chan­ging the Per­spec­ti­ve”. The clear atti­tu­de and mis­si­on of brin­ging tog­e­ther excel­lent design with sus­tainab­le and tech­no­lo­gi­cal inno­va­ti­on have made the brand a trailblazer. 

With a focus on respect for natu­re and its resour­ces, this year’s collec­tions have been inspi­red by the four ele­ments, uti­li­zing the para­dox of nature’s resi­li­en­ce and fra­gi­li­ty to crea­te expres­si­ve eye­we­ar styles for 2021. The second in a total of four is based on the ele­ment of air.
