  • 100% of Lyreco product manufacturers in risk countries are audited each year by recognized audit firms, directly on site. In 2020, our level of requirements has been extended to the protection of employees’ health in factories in response to the COVID-19 situation.
  • Sustainability is a major evaluation criteria of the Lyreco supplier performance improvement programme. This accounts for ¼ of the rates, at an equal level with Competitiveness, Category Management, and Logistics.
