RESPONSIBILITY AND SUSTAINABILITY
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
Our teams work towards a common purpose: acting responsibly to minimise Lyreco’s environmental impacts accross its operations and value chain, from our suppliers to our customers.
The “Sustainable Selection” supports our customers in selecting products that contribute to protect the planet and its people
Lyreco supports the UN Global Compact and UN Sustainable Development Goals
In 2004, Lyreco was the first company in the office supplies industry to join the UN Global Compact (UNGC), demonstrating our long-term commitment to sustainability. By supporting this global initiative, we aim to communicating annually our progress in implementing the UNGC Ten Principles and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
At Lyreco, we truly believe that the circular economy is the best way to achieve responsible growth. By converting our business to the circular economy by 2025, we are taking a decisive step on the path to conciliate even further our performance objectives with our sustainability commitments.

Lyreco Sustainable Selection
Sustainable trends and requirements have been evolving rapidly in recent years, from all aspects of the product itself to its packaging and end-of-life impact.
In 2023, we are launching the first version of “Sustainable Selection by Lyreco”, our new progressive assessment methodology for suppliers and products. Our goal is to better serve our customers in selecting products that contribute to the protection of the planet and its people.
