LYRECO SUSTAINABILITY SELECTION METHODOLOGY
A new progressive assessment methodology, clearer and closer to our long-term Sustainability Strategy, which aims to strengthen our current procurement process with more sustainable initiatives, actions and decisions.
The Lyreco sustainable procurement process is following the ISO 204001 principles validated by SGS2.
“Sustainable Selection” by Lyreco will be continuously improved to meet the ever-changing sustainability needs and requirements of our customers as well as our societies and the planet.
The product assessment is considered completed if the following two mandatory criteria are met:
- A minimum 80% of the product packaging is made of recyclable material; AND
- A minimum 80% of the product material is made of recyclable material or the product can be reused or refurbished.
If the above mandatory criteria are met, then the products will be further assessed and assigned up to three of the following “Sustainable Selection” icons:
PLANET BY LYRECO
Products focusing on environmental contribution
PEOPLE AT WORK BY LYRECO
Products contributing to the well-being and safety of people at work
COMMUNITY BY LYRECO
Products contributing to improving societal impact on local communities
A validated methodology
At Lyreco, we are committed to having the right processes in place to deliver against our sustainability commitments. The best way to do so is to work hand by hand with external partners who regularly monitor and guide our internal practices.
From 2023, the Lyreco sustainable assessment methodology will be assessed every year by SGS and follow the ISO 20400 principles.
