Naturally sustainable

Our bathing products have a first-class eco-balance. Because sustainability is important to us. And has been for over 70 years: Bette opted for the natural materials glass and steel as early as 1952. Careful use of natural resources is close to our hearts. We see this as an ongoing task and try to get a little better every day. No matter whether we invest in green steel, invent a  waste cover made of recycled material or always ensuring our trucks drive fully loaded: Sustainability is our programme - and not just a fashionable buzzword.

bathroom products made entirely of green steel to date*
Our goal: By the end of 2024, we want to produce 50% of our bath products from green steel. And the trend is upwards.

*The emissions generated in the production of this steel are offset by the simultaneous purchase of certificates in an equivalent amount proving that the steel supplier has saved CO2 elsewhere in the steel production process.

Green steel - and we've been there from the start

But what is green steel anyway? And why is the transformation of the steel industry so important to us? How do you benefit from our green products? We answer these and other questions here.

Our products? Last quite a long time.

From smartphones to toasters - many things we use every day don't last much longer than the prescribed warranty period of 2 years. With Bette, it's different.

From waste covers to overspray: we recycle with good ideas.

We are constantly working to reduce our material consumption. And are breaking new ground in the process. See for yourself!

Our material? Clean, of course!

A 100% recyclable product without chemical additives - that is the power of glass and steel, the materials we have been working with since 1952.

Our resource and energy management? Simply clever!

Why does a Bette truck delivering bath products drive back loaded with crates of mineral water? Because we also rely on efficient logistics.

Our website is climate-neutral

Websites are climate-neutral if the resulting CO2 emissions are calculated and offset. Surfing the Internet creates CO2 emissions, primarily because of the power consumed by the servers, data transmission, and the users' end devices. Based on our monthly page views, we have worked with ClimatePartner to determine the CO2 emissions caused by our website and offset them in a certified climate protection project.
Here you can see transparently what amount of CO2 emissions have been caused by our site and which project we are supporting. It is ClimatePartner's exclusive climate protection project at Virunga National Park in the DR Congo: a small run-of-river power station that supplies households and companies with electricity to help boost economic development and replace charcoal from the National Park as the main source of energy.
