Kopenhagen Fur is the world’s leading fur auction house – and with that comes a responsibility. 
A responsibility for the environment, for a sustainable circular economy and a no waste production philosophy and – of course – ensuring the highest standards of animal welfare. From 2020 all the fur coming from Kopenhagen Fur will be WelFur certified. The WelFur certification is a science-based program developed by independent researchers and monitored by third party auditors and is the finest seal of approval when it comes to animal welfare.
