At de Buyer, we are always striving to make a positive impact on society and the environment while still
contributing to the economic influence of our local community and the world. These commitments form
the basis of de Buyer’s responsible approach to business.
What is Corporate Social Responsibiltiy
Our philosophy, is respect: Respect for people, our partners, our customers, our employees, respect for the environment. A Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Label helps to identify companies who play a positive role in their community and consider the environmental and social impact of business decisions. This ideology is at the core of de Buyer's values.
Why is csr important?
This evaluation underscores the company’s transparency related to social and environmental practices, and serves as a reference point for the committed consumer.
This label has very demanding and strict requirements with over fifty criteria, which are examined according to the ISO26000 standard required to fulfill the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Seven areas that are thoroughly examined by the label are the core elements of ISO26000:
• Organizational Governance
• Human Rights
• Labor Practices
• The Environment
• Fair Operating Practices
• Consumer Issues
• Community Involvement and Local Development
de Buyer's home
Since 1830, de Buyer has been headquartered in Faymont, Val d'Ajol - a small village in the Vosges region of France. Our factory is surrounded by beautiful forests, streams, and wildlife and one of our biggest goals is to protect and maintain the natural habitat where de Buyer calls home. At each stage of design, whether for a product, machine, or building, we are always committed to the environment and to preserving the beautiful site in which our factory is located.
first of its kind
In April 2018, de Buyer became the first and only French company in the culinary sector to receive the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) commitment label at a Confirmed level.
Then in 2022, during our second evaluation, de Buyer was recognized as Exemplary by AFNOR, the highest level of the CSR Label.

At de Buyer, we strongly believe in integrating social and environmental practices into every aspect of creating high quality cookware, bakeware, and food preparation utensils. The new tier - Exemplary - is a significant improvement in comparison to the score that had been previously awarded to the brand, highlighting the measures that have been implemented over the last four years and confirming the company’s progress.
