Sustainable Products & Packaging
At Leitz as part of ACCO Brands, we firmly believe that the best way to reduce environmental impact is to provide high quality, long lasting products. Having to replace broken or worn-out products within a short period of time means the environmental impact of raw material production, manufacture, transport of materials and finished goods and disposal of the old product are doubled or tripled
Our Sustainable Product Philosophy
We have identified the key factors for our product ranges which will lead to products with a lower environmental impact – and a lower carbon footprint! This forms our product philosophy. If we focus on improving these aspects in comparison to previous models or standard / similar available versions of a product, we know the carbon footprint and overall environmental impact will be reduced. It may not always be possible to improve on all aspects at once, but each and every aspect we improve will lower the footprint of the product.
Discover our Sustainable Products & Ranges
With our new eco friendly stationery range Leitz Recycle, you can both improve your office environment and the environment of our planet. Every product in the range is co2 compensated, 100% recyclable and made from a high percentage of recycled materials.
The Original - CO2 Compensated
The original from LEITZ is not only the perfect lever arch file for your organisation – it is also an early pioneer of sustainability. It has been known for its premium quality and durability since 1896, has been awarded the Blue Angel for more than 25 years and has been FSC ® certified since 2011. And now it is CO2 compensated. So choose the original and go BACK TO THE FUTURE.
Environmentally friendly Packaging
We strive to reduce packaging wherever possible and to use materials responsibly. For example, we removed the PET window on our Leitz Stapler and Punch packaging, saving around 10 tonnes of plastic a year and the packaging for the Leitz Cosy range is entirely plastic free.
