Sustainability at VELLO Bike
At VELLO, we are committed to a sustainable future and actively contribute to minimising the negative impact on the environment and society. With our folding bikes, we are committed to environmentally-friendly mobility.
THE 5 VELLO SUSTAINABILITY PILLARS
We have a special commitment to sustainability - these 5 pillars summarise our contribution to a better future.
As an ultra-light folding bike, the VELLO Bike is part of a intermodal transport concept and easily handles rider's daily commutes. Thanks to efficient energy recovery using K.E.R.S. technology (Kinetic Energy Recovery System), longer distances can be covered with ease. Every VELLO Bike makes a positive contribution to climate change and every kilometre cycled reduces our carbon footprint.
VELLO raises awareness for environmentally friendly mobility and shows that a sustainable mobility revolution is also possible with thoughtful and award-winning design. Selected awards: German Federal Eco Design Award, Red Dot Design Award, Finalist German Sustainability Award, Austrian State Design Award.
ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE PROTECTION
We use recyclable and environmentally friendly materials for the production of our VELLO Bikes. We also place great emphasis on the ease of repair and reusability of our components. The motor and battery are built into the rear hub of the VELLO Bike and can be easily replaced or repaired without affecting the rest of the bike. We also upcycle many VELLO accessories.
Local manufacturing revitalises urban spaces, shortens distances, saves resources and offers our customers a unique shopping experience. We show that in an industry characterised by long supply chains, green alternatives can also be successfully implemented.
In addition to environmental sustainability, VELLO also stands for sustainable solutions to social problems. In the area of human resources, we work with initiatives to reintegrate long-term unemployed people into the labour market. As a certified apprentice company, we also offer young people a perspective as bicycle mechanics.
