Röhnisch's sustainability

We expect the brands we choose in our collection to meet our sustainability criteria. Our criteria consist of actions that take the environment, social conditions and climate into consideration. Here’s how Röhnisch meets our criteria:


Brand uses environmentally preferred raw materials for more than 70% of its volume.

  • Röhnisch demonstrates its commitment to sustainability by using environmentally preferred raw materials for over 70% of its product volume. In 2023, 87% of these materials were recycled or organic, reflecting the brand's dedication to reducing its environmental impact and promoting responsible fashion.

    Brand reports on the implementation of its environmental policy related to the ‘wet processes’ within the production cycle, like bleaching and dyeing of raw materials

    • The Röhnisch ensures the use of BLUESIGN®-approved systems or OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certifications for its fabrics, reflecting a strong commitment to minimizing harmful environmental impacts and promoting safer, more sustainable production practices.

    Brand has eliminated at least three suspect chemical group, such as Phthalates or Perfluorinated Chemicals from its entire production

    • Röhnisch adheres to the REACH standard, ensuring the highest level of chemical safety in their products. Demonstrating their commitment to environmental responsibility, Röhnisch banned the use of fluorocarbons in 2015, further solidifying their dedication to sustainable and safe manufacturing practices.

    Brand reports what percentage of its consumer packaging materials are renewable or made from recycled materials, and the brand implements concrete policies which have reduced the environmental impact of their packaging materials

    • Röhnisch strives to minimize plastic and non-recycled paper in their packaging. Their hang tags are made from recycled paper and printed with soy-based ink, while their e-commerce bags are made from recycled plastic. This reflects their commitment to sustainable packaging solutions.

    While Röhnisch has made significant strides in sustainability, the brand does not yet offer a lifetime guarantee, repair services, or support for the return or re-use of garments. Additionally, Röhnisch does not currently support environmental NGOs or other organizations to promote environmental sustainability. However, their ongoing efforts in other areas demonstrate their commitment to environmental responsibility and may pave the way for future initiatives in these areas.

        Social conditions:

          Fair social conditions are audited by third parties (For operations outside EU)

          • Röhnisch is committed to fair social conditions across its supply chain, especially outside the EU. Their biggest garment suppliers are BSCI or WRAP certified, ensuring adherence to high labor standards. Röhnisch's internal production team conducts at least two supplier visits annually to maintain strong relationships and compliance. Additionally, suppliers undergo independent third-party social assessments to ensure fair, safe, and healthy working conditions.

          Origin of the materials, design and the manufacturing is shared openly

          • Röhnisch acknowledges the complexity of garment supply chains, often overlooked by the "made in" label. They're committed to mapping out all suppliers to address environmental impact. Since 2022, traceability has increased to 72% in Tier 3 and 4% in Tier 4. Röhnisch openly shares the origin of materials, design, and manufacturing processes. 

          Brand is following buying practices that enable living wages and good labour conditions, such as long-term relations with factories, and concentrating production at a limited number of factories

          • Röhnisch collaborates with partners who align with their values of accountability, transparency, and sustainability across the supply chain. Transparency is paramount, and they continuously strive for improvement. Their direct cut, sew, and finish manufacturing partners are required to adhere to Röhnisch Code of Conduct, which prohibits child labor, forced labor, ensures health and safety protections, and surpasses legal minimum requirements in their respective locations.

          Röhnisch, while not currently disclosing an open list of direct suppliers responsible for over 90% of the purchase volume, maintains production in low-risk countries but their biggest garment suppliers are BSCI or WRAP certified, ensuring adherence to high labor standards. While not publicly committed to a living wage benchmark, the brand prioritizes fair labor practices and explores ways to support workers. While not actively engaged in supporting social NGOs, Röhnisch remains open to partnerships promoting social sustainability aligned with their values.


          Röhnisch has not disclosed the annual absolute climate footprint of its 'own operations' at this time. However, the brand has shared the product footprint for outerwear. Also, the brand has not yet achieved the milestone of sourcing at least 50% of its electricity from renewable resources, such as wind or solar energy.
