Our trusted partners
Motivating our stakeholders to participate in our long-term Corporate responsibility strategy and business methods is crucial to achieve our sustainability goals and to continuously optimize our activities.
Using a versatile customer service, we strive to meet all our clients wishes. The result of this interaction is the clear identification of social and environmental responsibility as essential pillar which we share with our customers.
That's why we implemented responsible procurement assistance solutions, such as our environmental calculation tool. During our Sustainable Days and Sustainable Awards, we take plenty of time to analyze best practices.
Lyreco Carbon Footprint Calculator
The Lyreco Carbon Footprint Calculator is an instrument used by all our departments to assess our Carbon exhaust, direct and indirect. It was first used in 2010 and focuses on three areas:
- Consumables, cargo and materials
- Energy resources used and bought by us
- Other possible indirect outflow
By cooperating closely, Lyreco and MTU are able apply lean processing, smooth processes and durable products. We would like to motivate everybody to aim for improved durability at their own organization.

In cooperation with our own brand vendors, we work on a permanent international optimization program with an emphasis on fair practices and deep respect for ethical codes. The suppliers we work with endorse our Purchasing policy, our code of ethics and our screening processes.
Empower responsability in practices
We permanently nurture exemplary practices applied by our vendors through our awards, Suppliers Day and Green Products screening methodology.
To make sure our durability and responsibility standards are met all the time, we also created a Supplier Sustainability Assessment process.
With Lyreco, we share information regarding durability all the time and we support each other to grow in this area. We cooperate to deliver our products in each region from the nearest mills, minimizing transportation.

Our logistic companions and vendors
Being one of the very first companies for delivery of workplace products all around the globe, we acknowledge our responsibility to make sure our logistic companions share our environmental vision. Therefore we include durability clauses in our contracts, which enables us to develop permanent improvement programs, such as low-emission projects.
Beyond the business aspect, the nature of the relations with our partners subscribes our durability strategy. Our Corporate responsibility unquestionably inspires the implementation of real actions like the definition of Principado Code of Ethics and the realization of a green fleet in Mexico.

Our trusted external partners
In the context of our Corporate durability, we cooperate with authorities, legal institutions and certification bodies to provide our clients with an objective viewpoint on our responsibility strategy. Being an international supplier, we act accordingly to the local laws that apply in each country.
We are committed to the UN
In a broader perspective, being a member of Global Compact and Human Rights Club initiatives, we act accordingly to the UN guidelines in areas covered by the 17 SDGs.
When it comes to environmental and social responsibility, the EU is a key player in constructing legal frameworks. We use these EU requirements and guidelines in our activity, like the European Product Environmental Footprint pilot phase.
Local charity and NGO’s
We commit to providing better social and environmental practices in our activities and more. Our employees are involved in local communities programms as well as in collaborative projects with social entreprises.
We also set up our own charity programme, Lyreco For Education, in partnership with the NGO Care, to help children and teenagers to access education all around the world.
Thanks to Lyreco's support since 2010, CARE has been rolling out educational programs in Brazil, Madagascar and now Cambodia. Our common goal is to provide better education that will help students improve their access to society over the long term. We are making a difference together!
