Corporate social responsibility

”In the interest of the environment –

  for the world of tomorrow.“

– strategy of edding AG –

As part of the edding group, Legamaster shares the strategic significance edding attaches to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). We endorse the edding vision regarding themes as human rights, child labor, discrimination and environment & sustainability.

The Legamaster CSR principles are defined in our Code of Conduct. The concept of CSR goes beyond the local impact of Legamaster’s business to our extended supply chain. Legamaster recognises its social position by imposing requirements on business partners and its own organisation when it comes to the supply of Legamaster products and services.

We understand CSR as a continuous process of improvement and adaptation in an ever-changing environment. Our goal is to further develop CSR as a systematic and continuous process, to ensure meaningful changes in the key CSR areas: People, Planet & Profit. Legamaster has started its CSR journey and will continue to implement initiatives to put its CSR commitment into action.

Video-conferencing: in aid of the environment

  • Our video-conferencing system makes numerous journeys between the Legamaster and edding head quarter unnecessary. In practice this leads to savings with regard to fuel consumption (car, airplane), reduced CO2 emissions, less employee stress, time saving and reduced travel expenses.

Responsible printing-and copying policy

  • We use 100% recycled paper bearing the Blue Angel environmental label. A double sided output policy and the use of digital technology has allowed us to reduce on paper usage. Digital copies are made instead of physical copies whenever possible. The replacement of outmoded individual printers with centralized multifunction units has improved power consumption. Ink cartridges are recycled.

Catalogue: naturally printed FSC® certified paper

  • Legamaster catalogues are printed on FSC® certified paper. A digital version of the catalogue can be consulted online.
