Since the year of foundation in 1982 we stand by our responsibilities not only in economics but also in ecological and social ways. We are committed to the social code of sustainable development and we are aware that it is a long and tough path.
Sustainability is at the foundation of our company vision with acknowledgement to quality craftsmanship. “Made in Germany” is the promise of the ORTLIEB brand for high quality, regional employment, environmentally friendly production and respectful co-operation.

Since 1993 we have systematically analyzed any ecological weak points in our production and we improved a great deal.
Promoting cycling is one of our main objectives from the very beginnings. Commencing in 2013 we systematically worked on sustainability; in the beginning of 2015 we issued our first comprehensive climate footprint (2011-2013). Currently we collect numerous relevant data which form the basis for defined and ambitious aims regarding sustainability. Publication of the first ORTLIEB sustainability report is planned for 2017.
We defined four central fields of activity regarding our responsibility. Those four fields define ORTLIEB’s core business: our economic gain must not be on the expense of environmental and social issues.
