Acting responsibly
Social responsibility and the protection of the environment

Social responsibility as well as the protection and preservation of the environment are important factors in our corporate activities.

Social responsibility and the protection of the environment

Pelikan stands for superior quality and responsibility, developed during many years of brand tradition.

Development and individuality

Pelikan is the quality brand that will last a lifetime.

Whether in the kindergarten or in school, in the office, during leisure time or – the finest form of communication – when writing with a premium writing implement: Pelikan products are reliable life-long companions.

We are able to draw on decades of experience in educational expertise and work closely together with teachers and institutes.

Pelikan’s new developments are consistently oriented towards future generations, and contribute to improving quality of life. Our goal is to provide individuals with capabilities that will enable them to actively and responsibly shape the future.

We offer teachers, parents and pupils help and inspiration. A teachers' Portal provides teaching ideas and materials and answers questions. Parents can also find interesting tips and suggestions for optimal development of their children on the Pelikan parents' portal.

Work environment

What would Pelikan be without its staff? Each employee is part of the greater whole.

The further education and development of staff is important to us, as highly-qualified staff is the most important resource of any company.
We therefore place great value on the topic of training: we provide annual training for young people in different professions in Hanover and Vöhrum.

Procurement & Production

Pelikan takes responsibility in the area of production.

Our environmental awareness starts with the procurement of raw materials. As well as fulfilling international and European standards, these must not only comply with the required limit values but always surpass them where possible.
This is just as fundamental for us as the targeted selection of suppliers and cooperation partners, and is guaranteed through intensive reception and quality controls as well as the adherence to our Ethics Code.
Our Pelikan production plants are certified to ISO 14001 worldwide, and our production processes are regularly optimized and inspected with regard to ecological aspects.

Logistics & Transport

Special standards apply when selecting our logistics partners – they must fulfill our high requirements in respect of the environment, safety and responsibility.
The grouping of commodity flows and CO2-reduced itineraries are fundamental aspects here.
Our modern logistics center in Falkensee directly supplies national and international customers.


Pelikan products are renowned throughout the world and represent outstanding quality, safety and sympathy. Over 1500 Pelikan employees worldwide are dedicated to ensuring that these high standards are met.
Many Pelikan products are designed for children and pupils, and therefore require special attention. Safety and harmlessness to health are therefore our top priority. This is ensured by our continuous quality assurance.
Pelikan not only focuses on the development of high-quality products, creative innovations and the associated manufacturing methods, but also concentrates on the responsible optimization of existing methods and products.
Each of our products is examined and constantly improved with regard to its effect on the environment.
This ongoing awareness is firmly anchored in our corporate goals.


At Pelikan, packaging and packaging development mean more than simply protecting the product.
Our premium quality packaging material is manufactured using a large proportion of recycling materials, and is optimally integrated into the responsibility concept of our brand.
Cardboard packaging is used wherever possible. Multi usable displays have highest priority.

Quality, Environmental and Workspace Safety Objectives = Corporate Policy

Our quality, environmental and health & safety policy is actively lived by each employee in every task as the fundamental basis for the Pelikan Corporate Policy.
Using a systematic and continuous improvement process we always strive to exceed the expectations of our interest partners (stakeholders*) in the quality and environmental influence of our company.
The Pelikan Group reduces the consumption of natural resources as a preventative measure and minimizes the environmental effects by avoiding waste, recycling and reducing emissions.
The Pelikan Group is committed to fully meeting the applicable legal requirements from environmental and workplace safety law through proactive actions.
The consistent implementation of our quality, environmental and health & safety policy through the involvement of each employee is the guarantee for sustainable growth and the success of our company.
Each employee is made aware of this policy. In addition, the policy is also published on our website.
*Stakeholder = customers, consumer, public, shareholder, employees, deliverer...
