Completely sustainable. With full protection.

The uvex i-range planet is the sustainable expansion to our new 3in1 safety eyewear range with the right products for virtually any workplace hazard or environment.

The uvex i-range planet version also sets standards in terms of sustainability: We use recycled and bio-based materials for our innovative safety eyewear —in the spirit of environmentally friendly and resource-saving manufacturing. The properties of our safety eyewear (e.g. mechanical strength, UV protection, design and comfort) are not affected in any way.

The uvex i-range planet can be used for various applications and contributes effectively to environmental protection — following our motto protecting planet.

protecting planet

To help raise awareness of its commitment to achieving increased sustainability, uvex has developed the protecting planet icon.
For uvex, protecting planet is more than a label. Based on our brand claim, protecting people, our sustainable approach integrates three core pillars — ecology, economy and social responsibility. These are incorporated throughout the business to improve our sustainability performance. This is why uvex undertakes comprehensive audits, measurements and evaluation management processes along the entire value creation chain to ensure our products are as sustainable as possible.

safety glasses with sustainable materials
recycled materials uvex safety glasses

The side arms of the uvex i-lite planet and uvex i-guard planet are made of 39 percent bio-based material. We use renewable raw material from the castor oil plant and energy from biomass sources to produce the eyewear. The soft face seal of the guard version is made up of more than 35 percent recycled granulate from leftover production material.

sustainable packaging
sustainable production with less waste

The paper required for the enclosed instruction manuals has been reduced by 30 percent. Increasing the packaging unit from 5 to 10 safety spectacles resulted in an additional reduction in the amount of cardboard required and also produces significantly less waste.

sustainable product packaging
environmentally friendly product packaging

The films of the polyester bags used consist of up to 70 percent recycled material, which is obtained from production waste. All cardboard cartons are made of over 90 percent recycled paper.
