Corporate social responsibility policy is an integral part of our business strategy. We make our commitment to being a responsible global corporate citizen at all levels of the company. That involves acting in the present with an eye to the future, and making choices to ensure that valuable natural resources do not simply endure, but flourish.
We use resources efficiently and help our clients do the same. We supply our clients with paper produced in accordance with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®), the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes (PEFC) and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. Our printed products are endorsed with the EU Ecolabel, proof of their safety from a health perspective for production employees and end-users, and of their environmental sustainability (through optimized resource use, reduced emissions and waste, increased recyclability).
Our Principles of Ethical Business Conduct are a commitment to the highest standards in relations with our employees, clients, subcontractors, and society at large.
Our Code of Ethics conforms to international social compliance guidelines such as those of the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI), The Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) and the International Labor Organization (ILO).

In Krakow, Poland, our employees support a number of charitable organizations including a nearby orphanage: Brzechwa Orphanage (Dom Dziecka im. Jana Brzechwy). In 2015, they bought essentials including kitchen equipment, and invited children from the orphanage to the theatre to watch a performance and meet Santa Claus. They also organized a Christmas Fair where employees sold their hand-made products. The proceeds provided funding for nearly 500 school meals.
Since 2007, our employees from Krakow, Starachowice and Warsaw, Poland have participated in the Noble Box Project (Szlachetna Paczka), a charity initiative by The SPRING Association (Stowarzyszenie WIOSNA), which supports needy families during Christmas. For almost 10 years our employees have supplied many families with essentials including food, toiletries, domestic cleaning products, clothes and toys.
