As a leading provider of document archiving services, we supply hundreds of thousands of small archive boxes and tens of thousands of medium archive boxes each year. As a result, we decided to reduce the environmental impact of our packaging by using brown corrugated ‘Kraft’ archive boxes (previously white and coloured) made from 85% recycled fibre and produced in one colour.
Our packaging is 100% recyclable, 100% renewable and 100% biodegradable.
Like any company, we know that some parts of our carbon emissions can not be totally eliminated, that is why we have chosen to offset carbon. We collaborate with two different organisations for our carbon offset and more specifically on tree plantation projects.
This will enable us to offer our clients eco-friendly services: thanks to our carbon offset strategy, all the flows and raw materials (such as the cardboard boxes) will be compensated. 100% of the cost of the carbon offset is covered by Labgroup which allows you to subscribe to sustainable services.
Vehicle fleet offset
We also offset the production vehicle fleet and the company vehicle fleet thanks to our insurance organisation which works with the Luxembourg organisation “Graine de vie” that plants trees in Madagascar to offset the CO₂ production (197 tons in total for 2020 and 2021). The planting was accompanied by actions to raise awareness among local populations and is part of a broader concept of sustainable development.
