We show our commitment to the world through the work we do every day. A BAUME watch is more than simply a product; it embodies our mission to design for a better tomorrow. We aim to inspire the watchmaking industry to be more mindful collaborative and circular, and because transparency is on our DNA we are actually doing it!
For us it is not only about complying with regulations to say we’re ethical. We are committed to doing great things for a better tomorrow. From the partners that we collaborate with and the way we source our raw materials to our deep respect for society as a whole.
Ethics are at the heart of our watches. We don’t use secondary packaging or precious stones, and our agile supply chain is designed to reduce waste at every step of the way, by adopting a made-to-order approach. Upcycled from multiple materials, including skateboard and ocean plastic, BAUME watches illustrate our commitment to mindful design, demonstrating that is indeed possible to reinvent waste into a beautiful, highly durable product while respecting our society and the planet.
We use sustainable natural materials such as cork and linen. Cork is harmless to the oak tree when extracted, and every part of the flax plant is used to produce linen, leaving nothing wasted.
Recycled and recyclable
We use recyclable materials, such as aluminum, for our cases. The cardboard in our packaging is FSC-certified and can be reused or recycled into paper.
Upcycled materials are an essential part of our mission. We aim to give a second life to previously discarded materials – our Iconic watch, made of recycled PET, is an example of this. We’re always searching for partners to enable us to innovate and upcycle materials in order to close the loop – what is called "circular economy”
Our products are the result of a mindful production process that minimizes waste throughout the value chain Our goal is to work with suppliers to reduce 25% of their CO2 emissions.
We’re increasing our waste reduction efforts. Our objective is to incorporate reusable containers into our manufacturing process and move to 100% recycled paper. The commitment of our suppliers forms an essential part of this project.
Closing the Loop
We aim to create a circular system that finds a new life for recovered products and materials. Our customers will be able to return their BAUME watch at the end of its life, enabling us to recycle or upcycle the parts.
