In becoming a member of UEBT, Weleda commits to the principles of Ethical BioTrade and will apply the Ethical BioTrade Standard to its sourcing practices. This means ensuring that sourcing practices promote biodiversity conservation and the sustainable use of biodiversity, as well as making sure that benefits are shared equally along the supply chain.

UEBT enables Weleda to implement a defined standard within the organisation and towards our stakeholders such as suppliers and processors,” explained Bas Schneiders, Head of Corporate Sustainability and International Strategic Sourcing for Weleda.
