Being truly sustainable involves thinking beyond the obvious.

Let’s do it. Let’s think beyond the obvious by starting with something easy: let’s travel back in time. Specifically, to 20 years ago. At that time, very few people were talking about sustainability, yet our approach as a brand was already based on sustainable development.

Writing the future together

  • Fostering sustainable innovation in BIC® products.

  • Acting against climate change.

  • Committing to a safe work environment.

  • Proactively involving suppliers.

  • Improving lives through education.

From words to actions.

If we say “Writing the future together”, some might think it’s just a pretty phrase. That is certainly not the case. It is an ambitious sustainable Development programme with clearly measurable targets for 2025.

Long, long live lighters!

Even longer than you can imagine. As part of our vocation for innovation in the circular economy, we have spent more than seven years developing the technology that allows us to separate each part of a used lighter and then recycle it. We are also operating two lighter collection programmes in Spain.


If there’s one thing we know about the future, it’s that it will have to be green. That’s why eco-design plays such an important role when it comes to innovation, and that’s why we’ve been working in this direction for more than 20 years.
