Taking responsibility – shaping the future.

What we do today determines how the world looks tomorrow.

Sustainability is always a core value at Lamy. It forms the basic principles of the company strategy we live by – for people and products, environment and society.

Two areas of sustainability.

Sustainability plays a significant role in all company activities at Lamy and represents a clear responsibility for the continuous further development of an economic, ecological and social foundation. Economic efficiency under ecologically justifiable manufacturing conditions and socially supportive and equitable activities – all inseparably intertwined.

Economic and ecological responsibility

Physical as well as visual development and manufacturing of classic products with exceptionally long lifespans – that is our company focus. Here, the standards for future-oriented action are set by resource-friendly and energy-efficient manufacturing with short supply chains for ecologically sustainable business.

Social responsibility

Lamy writing instruments are thinking tools – they help people all over the world to develop in a holistic way. As a mid-sized family company, targeted investments in educational projects and a wide range of social commitment are indispensable components of corporate action – as are fair par tnerships and socially-just activities on all levels: with employees, customers and suppliers.

Economically efficient, ecologically sound.
