Embracing Sustainability: The Lyreco Goodness Report 2024

In an era where environmental concerns and social responsibilities are at the forefront of corporate agendas, we are proud to stand as a beacon of sustainable excellence.

The release of the Lyreco Goodness Report 2024 marks a significant milestone in our journey towards a more sustainable. This comprehensive report sheds light on Lyreco’s holistic approach to sustainability, encompassing three core pillars: Planet, People, and Progress.


Our dedication to the planet is evident in our ambitious initiatives aimed at minimising environmental impact. The commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by 2030 underscores our proactive stance in combating climate change. By fostering a circular economy, Lyreco not only reduces waste but also promotes the reuse and recycling of resources, setting a standard for environmental stewardship in the industry.


At the heart of Lyreco’s ethos is respect for all our people. This is reflected in our commitment to support colleagues during challenging times, such as the cost-of-living crisis, which reflects a deep-seated commitment to employee welfare. Enhanced maternity, paternity, and adoption pay further exemplify our progressive policies. Collaborations with social enterprise suppliers underscore a commitment to uplifting communities and fostering social value.


Our journey towards sustainability is marked by continuous progress and innovation. Engaging suppliers for product transparency and aiming for 90% of sales from sustainable products by 2026 is a testament to our forward-thinking approach. These initiatives not only reflect our dedication to sustainability but also drive industry-wide change.
