uvex i-range planet - protecting people and the planet

The uvex i-range planet is the sustainable expansion to our new 3in1 safety eyewear range with the right products for virtually any workplace hazard or environment.

The uvex i-range planet sets new standards in terms of sustainability. With a focus on environmentally friendly and resource-saving manufacturing, we have used recycled and bio-based materials to produce this range, without affecting the reliable safety properties uvex are known for (e.g. mechanical strength, UV protection, design and comfort). The lens and side arms of the uvex i-guard planet are made from 39% bio-based materials, and we use renewable raw materials obtained from the castor oil plant as the basis for this product. In addition, energy recovered from biomass is used in the manufacturing process and the soft face seal consists of more than 35% recycled granulate sourced from production waste.

The uvex i-range planet can be used for various applications and contributes effectively to environmental protection — following our motto protecting planet.

To help raise awareness of its commitment to achieving increased sustainability, uvex has developed the protecting planet icon.
For uvex, protecting planet is more than a label. Based on our brand claim, protecting people, our sustainable approach integrates three core pillars — ecology, economy and social responsibility. These are incorporated throughout the business to improve our sustainability performance. This is why uvex undertakes comprehensive audits, measurements and evaluation management processes along the entire value creation chain to ensure our products are as sustainable as possible.

Reducing waste

The paper required for the enclosed instruction manuals has been reduced by 30 percent. Increasing the packaging unit from 5 to 10 safety spectacles resulted in an additional reduction in the amount of cardboard required and also produces significantly less waste.
