Vision and values

Lyreco culture is built on four important values. We uphold these values every day by promoting our ethics and compliance policy in everything we do.


We strive for perfection in everything we do


We believe in trust, respect and ethical behaviour


We really care for our employees and the planet


We anticipate, innovate and adapt to change


Our products and assets

At Lyreco, we ensure that all the products we deliver to our customers meet the highest standards in terms of quality, safety and environment.

We work exclusively with business partners sharing the same ambitions for product excellence.

Passion and respect

We respect people and the planet, that’s why we’re passionate about CSR. Our activity and initiatives play a role in improving the lives of our employees, our customers, our suppliers and even some of the less fortunate areas of the world. We’re also always taking steps to help protect the environment by offering more and more sustainable and green products. For example, our Great for the Planet, Great for the People labels help our customers choose more sustainable and ethical products.

To help protect against ethical breaches, Lyreco created the Raise Your Concern tool. A place where anyone – internal or external – can ask questions, seek advice and share concerns.
