July 7, 2021 - At BIC, limiting our impact on the planet is important to our entire organization. As part of our “Writing the Future, Together” sustainable development commitments, we have set ambitious goals for 2025. These goals will help us improve the environmental and societal footprint of our products and act against climate change. This is a key element of our long-term growth plans, aligned with our 4R philosophy: reducing the amount of raw materials used to make our products, including as much recycled or alternative materials as possible, making more refillable products and improving the recyclability of our products and packaging.
BIC’s commitment to sustainable development extends beyond minimizing the environmental impact of our products, packaging and operations. Today, BIC’s investors and analysts, along with many of our customers and consumers, increasingly expect companies to meet certain goals related to their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices. Thanks to the diligence and hard work put forth companywide, BIC receives high scores in this area, and we are not letting up!
