Points of Difference

Global Commitment is an Obligation

It’s our Nature®

The Faber-Castell group feels a consistent obligation and commitment towards people and the environment. We practice our social responsibility within the company, with business partners and in the community.

Faber-Castell joined the United Nations ‘Global Compact’ back in June 2003. That makes us one of the first medium sized companies to face up to the social, ecological, and economic challenges of globalization as part of a cooperative alliance between politics and private industry.

We prioritize and continuously search for environmental friendly processes and materials to contribute to planet preservation. We are ahead on anticipating future trends and impacts to accomplish our obligations and guarantee sustainability.

Using natural resources in a sensible way is only part of our commitment to a better quality of life. Our company-run forests make the Faber-Castell Group one of the few corporations that absorbs considerably more carbon dioxide than it produces.
