Our trusted partners

How we interact with our network for more durable practices.

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.

 

 

Our clients

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:

  1. Consumables, cargo and materials
  2. Energy resources used and bought by us
  3. Other possible indirect outflow
