The corporate success of Faber-Castell is based on trusting and fair dealings with employees, business partners, customers and suppliers. These values have not only been practised in the company for many generations, they are also the principles of the “Honourable Merchant”, a model dating back to the Middle Ages, which is still relevant centuries later. The honourable merchant is committed to adhering to values and rules, but also creates the conditions for honourable action and assumes responsibility for his deeds. For centuries, Faber-Castell has lived the corporate philosophy of fairness, transparency and respect. This includes, in particular, treating their employees well.
