Hahnemühle value tradition and responsibility very highly. After all, anyone who has been producing paper at the same site for more than 435 years understands how important it is to balance the manufacturing process with the natural world. Their production site is located in a nature reserve, which means they need to run their business with great care and responsibility. They also meet Germany’s strict environmental protection standards.
As Germany’s oldest manufacturers of artist paper, they are proud of their products, which have come to be associated with high quality, consistency, inspiration and sustainability. Every type of Hahnemühle paper combines their paper-makers’ experience in the ancient craft with their paper engineers’ innovative flair, using new fibres and energy-saving technologies to establish an environmentally friendly production process. Ever since the business was founded in 1584, they’ve been producing first-rate paper using natural fibres and pure water straight from the source. Without these basic materials, they wouldn’t be able to make their high-quality paper. That’s why they feel they have a certain duty towards the environment and take responsibility for the impact their company has on society and the environment.
Since 2008, they have been supporting both regional and international environmental protection projects through their ‘Green Rooster’ initiative, including reforestation, animal protection and environmental education programmes. These projects are very important to them and they’re delighted to be able to use a share of the profits from their Natural Line to contribute to environmental and climate protection. To date, more than EUR 300,000 has been donated to various environmental initiatives. Furthermore, they keep on donating 5% of the profits from their ‘green’ papers.
