Our work with Lyreco UK

About Lyreco

Founded in Valenciennes in 1926, the Lyreco group has since become an international force, providing sustainable workplace products and solutions to businesses across the globe. With more than 90 years’ experience, they pride themselves on providing the highest standard of products, customer service and account management in our industry.

Working with NETpositive Futures

Developed in partnership with NETpositive Futures, the Supplier Sustainability Action Planning Tool aims to embed supplier engagement and create a meaningful evidence-based action plan. Completion of the action plan helps drive Lyreco suppliers towards more sustainable and ecologically conscious operations.

Supplier Scoring

The tool has been designed to help Lyreco understand their supplier’s sustainability strategy as it is now but also to support suppliers to develop a bespoke action plan on what initiatives they need to undertake to make them become more sustainable.

The first part of the tool asks suppliers several questions under four key themes:

  • Circular Economy
  • Climate Change and Environment
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Social Responsibility
“This supplier sustainability action tool is a huge benefit to us as an organisation to increase the transparency of our supply chain to our customers. We have the strict target that 90% of our products and services needs to be sustainable by 2026, but to achieve this Lyreco needs to make sure our suppliers are aligned to our sustainability objectives. For sustainability to be fully integrated, including reducing our global impact, we all need to work together. Having this tool available to our suppliers not only shows us what they are doing but supports them to develop their own strategy.”
