Ecology and sustainability have become an integral part of our everyday lives. The public awareness is growing and each of us can make a contribution through our own actions.


FSC will promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests. The true value of forests is recognized and fully incorporated into society worldwide. FSC is the leading catalyst and defining force for improved forest management and market transformation, shifting the global forest trend toward sustainable use, conservation, restoration, and respect for all.

The Blue Angel

The Blue Angel has been the ecolabel of the German federal government for more than 45 years. It is awarded to environmentally friendly products and services.
The aim of the environmental label is to provide private customers, large institutional consumers and public institutions with reliable guidance for environmentally conscious purchasing. The Blue Angel stands for independent, transparent and ambitious labelling. Our drawing pads that are made from wood-free paper bear the Blue Angel seal.

Secondary raw materials and natural resources

Another claim of Eberhard Faber is recycling management and to make waste products as secondary raw materials reusable. In this way, natural resources can be saved and a sustainable improvement of environmental and climate protection will be achieved. 
Committed to the idea of sustainability, we are dedicated to circular economy and product responsibility. Therefore, the wood-free graphite and coloured pencils have been adapted to a recycled material and have a recycled content of at least 51%. We were able to convert our Green Winner paint box to 100% recycled plastic. We have also achieved our first successes in the search for alternative environmentally friendly raw materials and have, for example, been able to adapt the brush handle of our Green Winner brushes to 60% maize starch. These are just a few examples.
