corporate responsibilty

At ZIENER, we love winter sports and exercise in the great outdoors. It is therefore only natural that we want to preserve this nature. In addition to our commitment at a local level in our home town of Oberammergau, we have been dedicated to ecological and social issues for several years by processing environmentally friendly materials, supporting climate protection projects and advocating fair working conditions. In detail, this means that ZIENER is using more and more recycled fabrics, renewable, natural materials and PFC-free impregnations.

Environmental responsibility


bluesign® is an independent sustainability standard for the textile industry, which sets strict guidelines for the use of chemicals and thus enables a manufacturing process that is as environmentally friendly as possible. Based on a holistic approach, bluesign® follows the path of each individual textile product along its production process and makes improvements at every stage - from production to the end product. Resource productivity, consumer safety, air and water emissions as well as occupational health and safety are monitored. In its role as a solution provider and knowledge broker, bluesign acts as an independent assessor to ensure trust and transparency. We have entered into this important partnership with bluesign® to make our future collections more environmentally friendly.


Ziener is ClimatePartner-certified! This means that we have calculated our greenhouse gas emissions, defined reduction targets, continuously implement reductions and finance climate protection projects. With the ClimatePartner-certified label and the associated Climate ID website, we communicate transparently about these steps. ClimatePartner-certified companies include direct emissions generated within the company (electricity and heat generation, vehicle fleet, volatile gases) and indirect emissions from purchased energy, business travel and employee commuting The certification does not cover indirect emissions generated outside the company, e.g. from the manufacture of raw materials and preliminary products, external logistics and the use and disposal of products or other processes. More information can be found on the Climate-ID website.

Valley Green Up

Together with the Naturpark Ammergauer Alpen and König Ludwig Lauf e.V., ZIENER organizes the annual Valley Green Up. An event with the aim of protecting and cleaning up the Ammergau Alps Nature Park, in the middle of which our home town of Oberammergau is located.

Social responsibility


ZIENER is a member of the amfori Business Social Compliance Initiative (amfori BSCI). This initiative aims to gradually improve working conditions in production facilities. An independent monitoring and qualification system ensures that snapshots of the social performance in the production facilities are provided. This is based on a comprehensive code of conduct that all members support. As an amfori member, ZIENER is committed to integrating its production facilities into this cycle of training and audits and to supporting the implementation of the amfori BSCI codes of conduct.


At Ziener, we are committed to a resource-conserving textile development process. As we always strive for optimal fit and quality for long-term use of the products, it is necessary to produce samples that are not for public sale. Surplus samples are given to our employees and the orphanage in Oberammergau is allowed to choose the items they want. We made a donation to FairWertung e.V. in 2023 in order to put leftover gloves and textiles to good use.
