Lecta's Integrated Management System Policy

The quality, environmental, energy and occupational health and safety policy of Lecta's integrated management system reinforces our commitment and responsibility to the communities and environments in which we operate.

This policy is the cornerstone of our organization and its application is mandatory in all our activities and at all our sites. Our policy encourages paper production and distribution with a commitment to quality and service to meet customer expectations, while taking into account profitability, social responsibility, environmental protection, energy efficiency and occupational health and safety.

Social Responsibility

One of the key elements of Lecta's commitment to society and good business practices is our membership in the United Nations Global Compact, the world's largest Corporate Social Responsibility initiative.

Lecta submits an annual report identifying progress made in implementing the 10 Global Compact principles, identifying advances made and thereby increasing the transparency of our actions. This report is available at www.unglobalcompact.org

Lanscape

Lecta regularly works together with museums, exhibitions and cultural and artistic publications.

In France, for example, we open the doors of our Condat mill to school visits and help organize the Montignac and Périgord Noir music festivals in Dordogne. In Italy, Lecta regularly cooperates with the Riva del Garda Museum in the Trentino-Alto Adige region.

Teacher teaching children

Lecta sponsors and helps finance numerous cultural and charity projects.

Lecta sends out Christmas cards from NGOs to support charitable causes. We collaborate on calendars and publications edited by non-profit organizations such as the Spanish Talita Foundation's charity calendar to help children and young people with Down's syndrome and the INOUT hostel calendar, the first European tourist complex of its kind with staff that has some type of mental disability.

Lecta has also worked closely with the "Business With Social Value" (BWSV) program, which supports the integration of disabled persons in the workplace.

Furthermore, through Cartiere del Garda, since 1997, Lecta has collaborated with Adamello Brenta Natural Park, the largest reserve in the Trentino (Italian Alps) region.

Key milestones 2017-2018 as a responsible company

The new turbines installed at the Motril and Zaragoza cogeneration plants have significantly reduced NOX air emissions: by more than 90 and 60%, respectively, in 2018.

Reduced nitrogen oxide

Since 2017, Lecta has recovered nearly 100% of the sludge produced in the manufacturing process.

Maximized sludge recovery

During 2017-2018, Lecta reduced the volume of sludge produced by 17% compared to the previous two-year period, thanks to the resources it invested in optimizing the manufacturing process.

Lower water consumption in the production process


Environmental investments

More than 146 million euros over the last ten years.

With the continuous aim of achieving maximum energy efficiency and in keeping with its commitment to a responsible, more sustainable manufacturing process, from 2017-2018 Lecta invested nearly 20 million euros to replace the gas turbines at its Motril and Zaragoza mills for new more sustainable turbines with low-emissions technology.

A new gas burner and a heat recovery unit were also implemented at our Leitza mill while actions to optimize sludge-drying processes for sludge recovery continue to be implemented.
