In keeping with our clear commitment to sustainability, Lecta operates according to the highest environmental standards, guaranteeing innovative, safe and responsible products, the result of environment-friendly, responsible manufacturing processes. At a time of heightened awareness of the need to conserve natural resources and protect our planet, Lecta once again shares its success and progress in this area. This is the product of a long history of best practices, and significant investment in sustainable new technology and important environmental improvement projects at all our mills. In total, the company has invested more than 146 million euros over the last 10 years in this priority objective. This effort and commitment is reflected in the environmental indicators contained in the Environmental Report, the majority of which derive from each mill’s environmental declaration verified by an independent body prior to publication.
Logistics and transportation are essential to most companies. Virtually everything we use or own has been moved somewhere, whether as a raw commodity, finished goods—like paper and other FSC products—or in interim stages along the way.
According to the 2017 Commodity Flow Survey, paper manufacturers shipped over 164 million tons of product. Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests…and SmartWay helps companies learn how to move their products in the most efficient, responsible way.
EPA’s global sustainability program, SmartWay, has developed strategies and tools to help organizations make their freight operations more efficient, while reducing harmful pollution. FSC has joined SmartWay as a SmartWay Affiliate, to raise awareness of the impact of its members’ transportation footprint and to encourage its members to include freight operations in their sustainability efforts.
