Wackes has developed a special methodology, Sustainable Design Management, which is a tool we use for product development. This method results in constant improvements of our product development in terms of sustainability and supports our philosophy of using products for marketing purposes. In order to measure sustainability performance of the product range over time, a sustainability analysis is performed. Through this analysis we are able to develop the product range performance, define goals, and implement practical measures.


The parameters measured are:

  • supplier performance
  • origin
  • material selection
  • type of packaging
  • packaging method
  • choice of transport
  • overall performance of product
  • overall performance of product range
