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 requirements are met wherever our suppliers, manufacturers, and partners operate
  • Minimising packaging
  • Developing sustainable processes, from ordering and delivery to product end-of-life
  • Providing employee excellence wherever we operate
  • Supporting education around the world

We understand the importance of rapid and deep emission cuts in halving global emissions before 2030 and aim a net-zero before 2050. At Lyreco, we are committed to set near-term company-wide emission reductions in line with the climate science with the SBTi.
