Sustainable Selection Methodology  

Our “Sustainable Selection” is a progressive assessment methodology, clear and close to our long-term Sustainability Strategy, which aims to strengthen our procurement process by implementing more sustainable initiatives, actions and decisions.

The sustainable procurement process follows the ISO 20400 principles validated by SGS, and based on 3 criteria: Planet, People, and Community. The sustainable selection criteria are based on the IS0 14020 requirements.


The supplier assessment is the first mandatory criteria defined by Lyreco. It is based on the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standard.
The supplier or seller possesses a valid third-party ESG rating or certification (B-Corp or Ecovadis certification).



The product assessment is considered completed if the following two mandatory criteria are met:

  • A minimum 80% of the product packaging is made of recyclable material; AND
  • At least one of the 3 requirements of PLANET, PEOPLE, and COMMUNITY.

If the mandatory supplier and product criteria are met, then the products will be further assessed and assigned up to three of the following “Sustainable Selection” icons:
