 Our certifications


ISO 9001 and 14001

TÜV SÜD has tested and certified our quality and environmental management systems with the ISO certification. This means that all internal procedures and processes are carefully checked and continuously improved. All employees actively contribute to ensuring that our working methods meet the highest quality standards. With ISO 14001, the standard for environmental management systems, we want to support the protection of the environment and the sustainable use of resources and thus also minimise the risk in terms of environmental impact. The certifications demonstrate our continuous striving for quality and our commitment to environmental protection.

The additive incorporated in the casing has an antibacterial effect according to ISO 22196 and an antiviral effect according to ISO 21702. The adhesion and settlement of pathogens on the surface of the writing instrument is demonstrably reduced by 99.99 %. Both bacteria and viruses (including the Corona virus) are destroyed.

EcoVadis

We have submitted ourselves to external audit. EcoVadis > is a programme that assesses companies against 21 sustainability criteria. Under the programme, we were compared to 40,000 companies in 110 countries and we are proud to have been awarded a bronze medal for 2021. Our CSR performance score came out as above average. Using a scorecard available on the EcoVadis online platform, we can now share our result with our customers and show how we are complying with our CSR obligations. The resulting transparency and credibility help to maintain long-term sustainable behaviour.

 

climate neutral

ClimatePartner

We have been working with ClimatePartner, which supports us in terms of carbon-neutral production and developing carbon-neutral product lines, since 2019. ClimatePartner develops cross-industry climate protection solutions for companies. The companies’ greenhouse gas emissions are calculated and reduced as much as possible. However, since they cannot completely eliminate their greenhouse gas emissions, any remaining emissions are offset by financial support for climate protection projects. We work with ClimatePartner to support regional projects in the Black Forest and the Alps, as well as internationally recognised climate protection projects. more >
