Together for a sustainable tomorrow:

STABILO Together is the name of our company-wide sustainability initiative.
We knew that you were interested in sustainability, too. Here you can find out where we stand today and how we will become a climate-neutral company by 2025. And: how we and all our partners and fans out there will fight together to achieve this target. Together.

We’re on it!

Sustainability is always a key issue for us. This includes the raw materials we use, production and transport, and even how we source our electricity. We’ve compiled some of the highlights here:

Award-winning excellence!

We are pioneers when it comes to the most important certifications and awards.
For example, in 1998 STABILO became the first writing instruments producer in the world to receive FSC® certification. Today, 100% of the wood in every pencil that leaves our production facility comes from exemplary sustainable forests.


FSC PEFC cradle to cradle

We think in generations – not quarterly periods.

We’ve always had staying power. That’s why we prefer to work towards results that will be effective for years to come, rather than those achieved quickly. This applies to our writing instruments as well as our approach to sustainability.

We have a long tradition of looking to the future.

As a family company, we have run our business with an eye to the future since 1855.

So it’s no wonder that we have long since implemented the Paris Agreement at all of our locations.

True climate neutrality takes time.

Here it is in black and white: we’ll be climate neutral by 2025. Why not today? Well, for us the only the thing that counts is REAL climate neutrality, which we will achieve by implementing radical transformations throughout the entire company:

  • climate-neutral electricity supply to all production facilities
  • process optimisation in manufacturing and logistics
  • in-house electricity generation
  • exploration and use of alternative materials
  • improvement of recyclability and product durability

You’ll laugh, but: there’s a lot to be said for plastic.

We know what you’re thinking. And we’ve thought long and hard about plastic.

It’s currently the safest, best performing and most harmless material that can be used for pens. It makes them distinctively durable and also absolutely safe for children. It’s also becoming easier and easier to recycle.

But we promise you: as soon as we discover an even better material, we’ll pioneer that, too.

Our commitment to progress is based upon three pillars:

Planet

We think holistically: from sourcing raw materials to recycling.

People

We think beyond ourselves: for our employees, their families and their communities.

Profit

We think and act as entrepreneurs and view sustainability as a key success factor for the future.

STABILO Together – our team for a better tomorrow

Our sustainability initiative will only be successful if we work together. This is expressed not only in the name of the programme, but also in its structure. Because our Together team comprises the brightest minds from all areas of our company. Get to know them!
 
Maren from STABILO
Hey, I’m Maren and environment and energy management are my thing at STABILO.

One of my responsibilities as Sustainability Manager is to lead our STABILO Together team. Here, employees from all areas of the company contribute their ideas and actions.

Transparency is important to me – so write to me if you have any questions about sustainability or if you wish to know how you can contribute.
YOUR QUESTION TO MAREN

I want to know now!

Ask us whatever is on your mind. We’ll reply to you. Answers to frequently asked questions can already be found below. We particularly look forward to new questions.

We use the absolute minimum amount of transport packaging. Much of the packaging is used in shops as refillable displays. The individual packaging for some pens often fulfils an additional purpose as part of daily office use or at school, being used to store your pens and pencils. Of course, we are constantly on the lookout for possible improvements – we are always trying to save material, for example, and are systematically researching alternative materials.

At STABILO, our aim is to design our packaging so that it can be repurposed. As we generally only use one material in our packaging, they are easily recyclable. The majority of our transport packaging is made from 80% recycled material. We stopped using PVC as early as 2012 when we began using environmentally friendly alternatives.

Every STABILO pen is a quality product with a long lifespan. And many of them are refillable. However, if your STABILO pen nevertheless reaches the end of its long life, it shouldn’t pose a problem: every part is made of environment-neutral materials and can be disposed of in normal household waste.

Many of our pens are refillable, such as our fountain pens, rollerballs, ballpoints and mechanical pencils. But did you know that the STABILO BOSS is also refillable? However, this option is actually very rarely taken advantage of. Pen tips such as those of the STABILO point 88 and STABILO Pen 68 will slowly degenerate after around 1000m of writing. The writing systems in the STABILO worker and STABILO pointVisco must be kept airtight and are thus not refillable.

You’ll laugh, but: there’s a lot to be said for plastic. It’s currently the safest, best performing and most harmless material that can be used for pens. It makes them distinctively durable and also absolutely safe for children. It’s also becoming easier and easier to recycle. But we promise you: as soon as we discover an even better material, we’ll pioneer that, too.
