Sustainable purchasing

Our suppliers are held to the same environmental standards as we are and per product type must meet certain criteria. We are audited regularly to ensure we apply those criteria. This way, consumers know their products are 100% fair-trade, throughout the chain.


We are highly committed to minimising our energy consumption levels. Which is why we are participants in the MJA3 (Multi-year Energy Efficiency) Covenant with the government. It allows us to create sustainable awareness regarding energy consumption and invest in sustainable solutions.


Papicolor International B.V. aims to keep on investing in innovative solutions that contribute to bettering the environment. Reducing our carbon footprint, as well as waste production and energy consumption are elements irrevocably linked to our business practises and corporate vision.
