Our commitment to the environment is not restricted to production. In Brazil, for example, Faber-Castell has made an active contribution with the Arboris, Animalis, and ECOmmunity projects since 2001. The goal is to preserve the natural flora and fauna in the region around Prata, and to create an awareness among employees and the general populace so that they are motivated to take care of the natural environment. The number of registered species has grown continuously since the recordings were started. The area now provides a habitat for around 64 species of mammal, 237 species of bird and 60 species of reptile and amphibian.
