EDELRID is a founding member of the Albrecht von Dewitz Foundation. The non-profit foundation is based in the Lake Constance region. Its goal is to promote sustainable, ecological, and safe mountaineering.
Its founder, Albrecht von Dewitz, always welcomed innovations in the mountaineering sector with open arms and loved being outdoors. These aspects have fascinated him since he founded VAUDE in 1974. Therefore, it’s only logical that his foundation does the same. Supporting innovations for tomorrow’s world, ensuring safe mountaineering, and protecting the alpine world, are the founder and foundation’s top priorities.
The foundation’s based near Lake Constance and funds both national and international projects and initiatives that meet its criteria.
