Planetary boundaries

Climate change is one of nine planetary boundaries that threaten the stability of our ecosystem. Others include the decline in biodiversity, changes in land use, e.g. through deforestation, or freshwater consumption. In this context, the planetary boundaries represent a “safe operating space”. If these limits are exceeded – which is already the case for several – the risk of irreversible consequences for the environment and humanity increases.

The combination of these goals is designed to ensure that we, as uvex, integrate respect for planetary boundaries into our actions. You can read more about our four focus areas here.
