Ecology in the office

We are aware of the impact our activities have on the environment. The main material we use is paper. Therefore, we pay special attention to administrative circulation, the use of returned materials and recycling.

Use of recycled paper at the publishing offices, waste sorting, collection and disposal of used batteries, use of energy-efficient multifunctional devices with a standby mode, and two-sided printing.

Managing circulation and returns

In order to reduce the environmental impact of newspaper and magazine production, Ringier Axel Springer makes every effort to optimise the production process.

We optimise the circulation of our press titles by improving sales forecasting and by bringing the local distribution of our periodicals down to individual points of sale.

For the printing of its periodicals and magazines, Ringier Axel Springer uses paper from known sources only. All suppliers of paper sign a sustainable development clause that concerns, among other things, forest management standards.

The transportation of periodicals and magazines is mostly conducted by external transport companies that are required to optimise their services through rationalised route planning.
