What is "Green Candle" ?
Wiedemann Candles - for the sake of the environment
For us, Green Candle is the awareness that everyone must make a contribution to environmental and climate protection. As a traditional company with almost 160 years of experience, we are not only conscious of preserving our history, but also of taking responsibility for the future. This also applies to the environment. For this reason, we decided many years ago to make our personal contribution to environmental protection. Because of this, our company and our products were certified by the "klima und Energie" certification body of TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH.
Thanks to more efficient production processes, we have been able to reduce our energy requirements per kilogram of candles produced by more than 25% in recent years. Wherever possible, we also prefer regional or local suppliers to avoid unnecessary journeys. Furthermore, we strive for zero CO² emissions in our company. However, since not all CO² emissions can be avoided when candles are burned, there is still an option for climate protection, namely climate neutrality, for the unavoidable CO² emissions. That is why we have been funding such greenhouse gas-reducing climate protection projects with a total of € 150,000 since 2012, which means that the inevitable CO² emissions are "neutralized", that is compensated. Nevertheless, we pay particular attention to the quality and origin of all materials and avoid, reduce or recycle waste.
Wiedemann candles are also awarded the "RAL quality mark". This means that our candles are checked regularly according to the quality regulations specified there. Candles with the "RAL quality mark" have:
Quality-assured selection of raw materials
Checking all ingredients
