Lecta Publishes Its Newest Environmental Report

​​​​​Transparency and reducing our environmental footprint are the foundations of Lecta's commitment as a socially responsible company

Lecta is firmly committed to sustainability. It is the principle that guides our business activity, ensuring that it is respectful towards the environment and the society that surrounds us.

In a world with a growing demand for natural resources, sustainability is a key element in our future. This is where products such as paper, made from natural and renewable raw materials, recyclable and biodegradable, can make a real contribution to society.

In Lecta's case, a long tradition of best practices and nearly 120 million euros allocated to environmental projects since 2006 have resulted in significant decreases in all of our environmental indicators, as demonstrated in our report with concrete data verified by a third-party, independent entity.

All of Lecta's manufacturing sites are certified to the strictest environmental standards – ISO 14001 and EMAS – and hold PEFC™ and FSC® chain of custody certificates, thereby guaranteeing sustainably sourced wood and pulp raw materials. Furthermore, all Lecta sites have successfully completed audits for ISO 50001 energy efficiency, ISO 9001 quality and OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety certification.

Lecta's new Environmental Report is available in four languages – English, French, Italian and Spanish. The full version can be downloaded in PDF format in the sustainability section of www.lecta.com.​
