Our Quality Awards

German Sustainability Award 2014

For more than 115 years, the name Rauch has stood for high-quality furniture made in Germany.

We use only high-quality materials containing no harmful substances, which we combine with good workmanship, modern design, functionality and durability – and all at affordable prices. Acknowledging our responsibility for the environment and society is central to our values.

Our aim is to produce sustainable furniture. The wood we use comes, without exception, from regional, sustainably managed forests, for example, and our entire production process is CO2 neutral. This is one of the reasons why Rauch was among the winners of the "German Sustainability Award" in 2014.
