We are proud to be the only eyewear manufacturer in Europe with EMAS-certified (the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme of the European Commission) environmental management.
Between 2015 and 2021 we were able to downsize our eyewear production CO2 emissions to more than half of the initial emissions, and we are on our way to become 100% CO2 neutral.
Following a gold standard
In the meantime we offset the remaining CO2 with offsetting initiatives certified by non-profit organisation Gold Standard Foundation www.goldstandard.org. We have chosen a project that provides renewable energy and improving the lives of people local to the farm with economic growth, improved living conditions and employment opportunities in the global south.
Transparency and integrity
Trust is a cornerstone of Silhouette’s principles, which is why we endeavour for complete transparency and integrity with our sustainable vision.
As a part of that we have our annual carbon footprint independently audited by a trusted third party, such as the leading independent organization TÜV Austria.
