Reducing our impact on the planet is a long-term strategy that will be achieved through progressive action plans and continuous improvement.

 In order to reduce our impact on the planet, by 2026 we will: 

  • Use and sell products and services that contribute to protecting the planet and its people, with a target of 90% of total turnover to be represented by our Sustainable Selection products.
  • Embrace the circular economy by closing the loop in our internal consumption and external selling.
  • Reduce the environmental impact of our company vehicles and business travel and switch our vehicles to low-emission vehicles. The emissions that we cannot reduce will be offset by financing climate action.
  • Reduce the environmental impact of our company facilities and offset the emissions we cannot reduce by financing climate actions.

Driving Towards a Greener Future

At Lyreco, our ambition is to deliver sustainably. Through our focus on innovation, route optimization, and the adoption of low-emission vehicles worldwide, each country within our global network tailors its action plan to address local challenges, ensuring our efforts are aligned with regional contexts. Initiatives such as electric rickshaws in Switzerland, cargo bikes in the UK, and electric vehicles in Finland and Spain showcase our dedication to finding creative solutions that reduce CO2 emissions while enhancing customer experience.

Furthermore, our sustainability efforts extend beyond vehicle choice to include practices such as the use of biofuel and intermodal deliveries in France, water and emission savings in Poland, and emission reduction and compensation in the Netherlands. These initiatives not only demonstrate our dedication to lowering environmental impact but also highlight our aim to address the challenges of modern urban environments. As we continue to innovate and implement sustainable practices, Lyreco remains steadfast in driving towards a better future, one sustainable delivery at a time.

Lyreco sustainable selection

In 2023, Lyreco is launching the first version of “Sustainable Selection by Lyreco”, aiming at better serving our customers in selecting products that contribute to the protection of the planet and its people. 

Sustainable Selection is a new progressive supplier and product assessment methodology that is clearer and closer to our long-term sustainability goals. It aims to strengthen our procurement process with more sustainable initiatives, actions, and decisions. Our target is for 90% of our total turnover to be represented by our Sustainable Selection products.
