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. In March 2014, Faber-Castell’s worldwide carbon footprint & carbon neutrality was certified by TÜV Rheinland® based on the international standard ISO 14064.

As a global concern, Faber-Castell will continue to work to prevent climate change not only by optimizing production and logistics processes and using sustainable energy, but also through active involvement in climate protection organizations.

Why? ‒ Because IT’S OUR NATURE®!
