Sustainability - Fact Sheets
Our Fact Sheet is a short sustainability report that informs about our activities and developments in the area of sustainability at Faber-Castell.
The standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) serve as a guide and the principles of the UN Global Compact are taken into account.
Among other things, our Fact Sheet presents our carbon-neutral production with a detailed explanation of the emissions and energy consumption of our production sites. The figures relate to the 2018/19 fiscal year and are compared with the previous three fiscal years. Furthermore, we present our group-wide sustainability projects in Latin America, Europe and Asia until the end of 2020, in connection with the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF)
We strive to continuously reduce the corporate carbon footprint of our global operation, by increasing energy efficiency, switching to renewable electricity supply and becoming energy-self sufficient.
We intend to further reduce our corporate energy demand by switching to more energy-efficient assets in all our production sites.
We strive for energy self-sufficiency by implementing our own supply of renewable energy, for instance through installing solar panels, heat pumps or water turbines.
We plan to avoid plastic-based single-use packaging and, when-ever possible, substitute it with cardboard or other more environmentally friendly materials.
We aim to replace virgin plastics used in our products with alternatives such as recycled, bio-based or bio-degradable plastics without compromising quality.
We want to establish an equal distribution of male and female leaders.
