A comprehensive, assessed commitment
Since 2011, we have measured our greenhouse gas emissions and since 2019 we are applying the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol, an international standard for managing and measuring emissions. Accurately measuring how much and what we emit helps us plan our emissions reduction roadmap.
Committing to the Science Based Targets initiative and being officially referenced on its website since 2021, we are defining reduction targets in line with the Paris Agreement to help keep global warming below 1.5°C. These targets are based on two key performance indicators:
- Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions relating to scope 1 (direct emissions) and scope 2 (indirect energy emissions)
- Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions relating to scope 3 (other indirect emissions), including the impact of products, upstream transportation and distribution, business travels, waste, etc.
We are proud to have continued to decrease our scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions in 2022.
We've made consistent progress in reducing scope 3 emissions by aligning our sustainability initiatives with our strategic goals. To ensure a meaningful comparison, we calculate the sum of scope 3 emissions in relation to our sales, reflecting our commitment to simultaneously fostering business growth and mitigating indirect emissions.
However, we observed a slight increase in our scope 3 emissions in 2022 compared to the previous year. This increase is partially explained by the rise of business travel after the lifting of COVID 19 restrictions (+83% CO2e compared to 2021).
Urban delivery on the road to less emissions
With our new sustainability strategy, we aim to switch our company vehicles, including the delivery vehicles and the cars used by our sales teams and directors, to low-emission vehicles. The emissions that we can’t reduce will be offset through financing climate action.
Go deeper into renewable electricity
At Lyreco, we aim to supply our facilities with 100% renewable energy.
This is achieved by producing our own renewable energy on-site with solar panels and by using instruments such as Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) and Renewable Energy Certificates (REC).
By 2026, Lyreco aims to have 90% of their global turnover to be represented by their Sustainable Selection of products, have 90% of employees proud to work for Lyreco, and continue to collaborate with their partners to achieve sustainable progress. Lyreco’s mission is to be pioneers in delivering sustainably what every workplace needs, so that its people can focus on what matters most.
Lyreco launched the first version of Sustainable Selection by Lyreco at the end of 2022, which is a new progressive assessment methodology, clearer and closer to its long-term sustainability strategy aiming at strengthening their current procurement process with more sustainable initiatives, actions, and decisions. It follows the ISO 20400:2017.
Your workspace is more than just a place to work, it’s a catalyst for shaping your organisation’s culture, driving collaboration, and fuelling business growth. With Lyreco Interiors, you can reimagine your workspace, so it aligns with your brand identity and supports your goals. Our collaborative approach ensures that we closely consider your unique requirements and preferences to deliver a workspace that surpasses your expectations.
