Antalis’ Environmental Labelling Experiments

Having been the sole reams distributor to be selected by the Ministry of Sustainable Development on the basis of a voluntary bid, starting in the autumn of 2011, Antalis implemented a multi-criteria display scheme for two of its ranges of office paper.

For this first experimental label, Antalis has selected four criteria that are now displayed on the ream:

  • The greenhouse effect (using a CO2 equivalent)
  • The depletion of non-renewable natural resources (in reserve, per person)
  • Water consumption (in litres)
  • The fibre origin (% certified and/or recycled)

By participating in this experiment that is fully consistent with its Corporate Social Responsibility strategy, Antalis aims to test the clarity, understanding and impact of the label message among consumers.
