Efficient for ecology

STAEDTLER has always taken its motto, “efficient for ecology,” very seriously, and this applies just as much to our products as it does to our production processes. As a long-standing company, the use of innovative technology enables us to continually improve the efficiency of our processes and increase the lifetime of our products. And the result is product longevity, which in turn protects the environment. Something that lasts and lasts doesn’t have to be replaced for a long time – which means we consume fewer raw materials, emit less CO2 and ultimately produce less waste. STAEDTLER systematically ensures that new products take environmental protection into account, and so this principle is built in to numerous innovations such as WOPEX, ABS and DRY SAFE.

Certified, wood-cased STAEDTLER pencils

Certified, wood-cased STAEDTLER pencils STAEDTLER sets especially high standards when it comes to the sourcing and processing of wood, which is one of the most important raw materials in the production of wood-cased pencils: That is why STAEDTLER Mars GmbH & Co.KG is certified in line with the applicable FSCTM and PEFC standards in terms of the production and sale of wood-cased pencils. In this way, STAEDTLER ensures the documentation and improvement of sustainable forestry management in relation to economic, environmental and social standards. All wood-cased STAEDTLER pencils are made using certified wood. STAEDTLER thus underscores its commitment to the environment and its sense of responsibility in respect of wood – an essential raw material.

Integrated quality and environmental management systems

The company’s two quality (ISO 9001:2015) and environmental (ISO 14001:2015) management systems are fundamental components of its philosophy and drive continual improvement and increased efficiency. STAEDTLER bases its approach on the principles of European environment policy and the energy policy of the German Federal Government. In addition to conserving resources, ensuring the most efficient use of them and sustainable development, the company is committed to safeguarding biodiversity. This is also evident when it comes to products: sustainably sourced wood is the basis of our STAEDTLER wood cased pencils.
