Responsibility and Sustainability

Dedicated to driving lasting positive change.

At Lyreco, we are aware that taking action to contribute to the protection of our planet and people requires the commitment of everyone and we must act to drive progress in sustainability with our entire supply chain. Each year, we improve our long-term involvement in sustainability aiming at strengthening our commitment toward more responsible practices and ensuring we work with partners who, at least, share our concerns and ambitions.

Delivering excellence is not only about top-quality products and services, it is about ensuring that every action we take is consistent with our sustainability ambitions and meets our customers' expectations:

  • Providing products that contribute to protecting the planet and its people
  • Ensuring ethics and compliance in all the countries where our suppliers, manufacturers and partners operate,
  • Minimising packaging,
  • Developing sustainable process from ordering to delivery to product end-of-life,
  • Providing employee excellence wherever we operate,
  • Supporting education in the poorest countries.
