  • delivering sustainable office products,

  • making sure this happens in an ethical and compliant way in all countries where our suppliers operate,

  • reducing packaging to the absolute minimum,

  • creating an environmentally friendly process from order to delivery to product end of life

Ethical and sustainable sourcing

We demand that our suppliers and all companies that manufacture Lyreco products duly respect environmental, labour and human rights. That’s why ethics and durability in the supply chain are key in our Corporate Social Responsibility strategy. 

Our Lyreco product manufacturers yearly receive a visit from the group QSS team for an on-site audit in order to make sure our commitments and sustainability benchmarks are continuously met. 

These evaluations and screenings are based on

  • the 4 keystones of SMETA (SEDEX Members Ethical Trade Audit): Labour, Health & Safety, Environment and Business Ethics.
  • BSCI
  • Lyreco Vigilance plan and Purchasing policy
