We're Planting A Beautiful World

Our plant-rich beauty receives the first-ever UEBT Certification for sourcing with respect!

Weleda is one of two leading brands worldwide to be the first to obtain the new UEBT (Union for Ethical Biotrade) certification for sourcing with respect.

In order for a brand to be certified, UEBT looks at its entire sourcing system. One part of the process is to validate that the brand has incorporated the requirements from the UEBT standard into its systems for sourcing and processing natural ingredients. Another part of the certification requirements concerns the sourcing practices: Certified companies need to verify that they have implemented these throughout the supply chains for their natural ingredients. The new UEBT label will first appear on Weleda products in the beginning of next year. 

 

“Ethical and responsible sourcing is at the heart of who Weleda is and we are honored to be recognized with this inaugural UEBT certification"

-Rob Keen, CEO Weleda North America

“We are so proud that Weleda has achieved ethical sourcing system certification by UEBT and will be one of the first brands to place the UEBT trust mark on its products. By meeting our internationally recognized standard, a company assures customers that, when sourcing raw materials, biodiversity is conserved and used sustainably, and that all partners along the chain are treated equitably and paid fairly,” -Rik Kutsch Lojenga, UEBT’s Executive Director
