Here at Lagom, we take our responsibility to the environment very seriously. We take special care to ensure that all of our activities and products are as sustainable as possible. We combine frugality and respect for natural resources while developing a commercially viable and creative business that challenges the norm. This is part of the natural balance we strive to achieve and lies at the very heart of Lagom, but we don't work alone. We endeavour to work with the most ecologically sound businesses in the production chain.
Our paperWe always use accredited sustainable & recycled papers, smaller page sizes and reduced weights where possible. To save on transportation miles we have moved our paper production to a British Mill. Not only do they produce high quality, distinctive papers, but they are also at the forefront of cutting edge paper recycling technology. All the pulp purchased is manufactured using either an Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) or a Totally Chlorine Free (TCF) bleaching process. All of the mills suppliers are committed to sustainable forest management. All suppliers have attained the International Standards ISO 9000 and ISO 14001. Certified to FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) and separately to PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) The Group has now exceeded all 3 of its Climate Change Agreement (CCA) Milestones for specific energy use per tonne of saleable product.
