Efficient Use of a Key Resource – Paper

Even in an increasingly digital media world, printed books, magazines, brochures and leaflets continue to have their place. Our divisions and companies use a wide range of papers in the production of books, magazines, and other printed materials, as well as office communications and documentation. And this is why the conservation of paper as a resource and the reduction of paper waste play a special role at Bertelsmann.

Our aim is to use paper efficiently and responsibly across the entire value chain. In our role as a print services provider and buyer of paper we can have a positive influence on our customers and supplier as well.

Bertelsmann and its divisions are firmly committed to ensuring that the paper we use only comes from well-managed and credibly certified forestry resources. In addition, we look for providers that take sustainability issues into account in their logging and production processes.

Our "Paper Policy" regulates our principles as a supplement to Bertelsmann’s environmental strategy and policy.
