Paper Sourcing

Egmont is aware that a large part of the environmental and climate impact stems from Egmont use of paper for magazines and books

Consequently, sourcing of paper is a focus area in Egmont’s environmental policy and part of Egmont’s UN Global Compact environmental commitment.

Egmont aspires to source the majority of the paper used from sustainable sources. Egmont buys paper from all over the world, but most of the paper is sourced from Europe. Similarly, most production and printing of books and magazines takes place in Europe.

Besides producing own books, Egmont often participates in the co-production of books together with other publishers, where Egmont has limited influence on paper sourcing and production.

In the example to the right you can see how Lindhardt & Ringhof sources paper.
