• Lyreco’s environmental efforts recognised with international award

        • The workplace and office supplies firm, Lyreco, has won a Green Apple Award from The Green Organisation, an environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world. As a result, Lyreco has been invited to have its winning paper published in The Green Book, the international work of reference on environmental best practice.

          In the past two months, Lyreco has picked up two other honours including Environment and Sustainability Award at the SHD Logistics Awards, which celebrate excellence in the logistics industry, and the Environmental Award at the British Office Supplies & Services (BOSS) Industry Awards, for the fifth year in a row.

          Peter Hradisky, Lyreco’s Managing Director said, “these awards are external verification that our five-year strategy to reduce our environmental impact in every step of Lyreco’s business is working. We continuously strive to be a more sustainable organisation by researching ways we can reduce our environmental impact and increase our contribution to local community and society while engaging employees, suppliers and customers on the journey.”

          Lyreco has implemented a series of initiatives across its network of 27 Regional Distribution Centres and satellite centres in the UK and Ireland. They have included installing a roof mounted solar photovoltaic system at its National Distribution Centre in Telford, achieving zero landfill at the National Distribution Centre and Head Office, and reducing its electricity consumption by 39 per cent in four years.

          Further initiatives include introduced an apiary on site at its Telford headquarters to boost the country’s honeybee population and a social auditing programme for all Lyreco branded products manufactured in developing countries covering social, human rights and health, safety and environmental conditions. The firm is also committed to sustainable packaging and two years ago it introduced TomTom Telematics and tracking systems to the 315 vans in its fleet, with the aim of increasing fuel efficiency and promoting safer driver behaviour.
