1 ECO-RESPONSIBLE PAPERS F O R ECO-RESPONSIBLE COMPANIES

2 USING PAPER CAN BE AN ECO-FRIENDLY ACT, BUT PEOPLE DON T KNOW IT. Hervé Poncin Antalis Chief Operating Officer

3 As a leading international distributor of communications support materials, Antalis believes that its development must take into account economic, social and environmental concerns. Therefore, Antalis implements Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives which are fully aligned with its parent company Sequana s global strategy built on 4 pillars: Governance, People, Natural resources and Product offer. 3

4 THE ANTALIS GREEN CONNECTION TO ACHIEVE GREEN EXCELLENCE 4 Antalis works closely with its suppliers, customers and other stakeholders to combine innovation, added-value in the pursuit of environmental excellence. The environmental initiatives undertaken at both group and local level aim to achieve 3 key objectives: ➊ Ensure Antalis commits to environmental excellence in its everyday business ➋ Support Antalis customers in their commitment to eco-responsible paper and printing ➌ Ensure responsible sourcing of the products Antalis sells. Why a new stamp? In order to ensure that a coherent message underpins these different actions and to deliver a consistent, structured, group-wide eco-responsible strategy, Antalis created the corporate green identity known as Antalis Green Connection. In tangible terms, this means that, going forward, such dedicated eco-responsible communications tool as the green stamp, an immediately recognisable logo that will set Antalis apart, will appear on all actions when they refer to eco-responsible projects or initiatives. Next are a number of ambitious undertakings that now carry the Antalis green stamp and support the group s objective to lead the way in environmental responsibility. ➊ ENSURE A COMMITMENT TO ENVIRONMENTAL EXCELLENCE IN ITS EVERYDAY BUSINESS Multi-site FSC and PEFC certification Antalis is the first paper merchant in the market to have set up a multi-site FSC and PEFC certification to ensure full traceability and transparency through the entire supply

5 the technical and application possibilities of each paper. Eco-responsible product offering Antalis has built an environmentally-friendly product offering that is one of the broadest available on the market today, and that adheres to stringent environmental credentials. To help the customers in their eco-responsible paper search, Antalis has developed the Green Star System to rank its paper product offering, with a minimum of 3 stars to be considered as eco-responsible. chain. Audits are performed on logistics as well as information systems and marketing and sales processes. Today, 35 Antalis entities worldwide are part of this programme. CarbonNeutral Paper Buying CarbonNeutral paper from Antalis, contributes to reductions in your carbon footprint. For every tonne of CO 2 produced by the manufacture, packaging, storage and distribution of CarbonNeutral paper, an equivalent amount is reduced through renewable energy or resource conservation projects that would not otherwise happen. ➋ SUPPORT ANTALIS CUSTOMERS IN THEIR COMMITMENT Sustainable development support services and tools Antalis offers a number of services (consulting, training, workshops ) and tools (environmental calculator, brochures, swatches, samples ) to help customers understand the various environmental certifications and regulations and the potential environmental impact of their choice of paper. They can also learn about ➌ ENSURE RESPONSIBLE SOURCING OF THE PRODUCTS Supplier code of conduct Antalis has implemented a strict Supplier Code of Conduct in which potential candidates performance in terms of social and environmental responsibility is considered in addition to their strategic fit, service capability and product quality. The Code also covers such essential questions as forced and child labour, discrimination, working hours and wages, respect and dignity, ethical dealings, health and safety. Sustainable wood pulp and paper sourcing policy Antalis is committed to using timber from legal, sustainable and well-managed sources and to supporting initiatives and forestry management schemes that promote this. Antalis gives priority to timber carrying internationallyrecognised certification standards such as FSC or PEFC. Product traceability process In order to better manage its sourcing issues, Antalis has implemented a new online platform that centralised all its supplier traceability information. 5

6 THE ANTALIS GREEN STAR SYSTEM A USER- FRIENDLY RANKING SYSTEM 6 EASY TO UNDERSTAND The Green Star System is based on a universally-recognised point of reference used to rank services and products. A SYSTEM TO COMMUNICATE THE ECO-RESPONSABILITY LEVEL OF THE PAPERS It incorporates the vital information on the origin of the fibre and the manufacturing process, which represent the two main environmental impacts of paper in its life cycle, and attributes each paper product a star rating from zero to five based on environmental performance. Origin of the fibre For a product to be eco-responsible, the wood fibres must either be FSC /PEFC certified or at least 50% recycled from post-consumer waste with the remaining in line with FSC or PEFC standards. Manufacturing process For a product to be defined as eco-responsible, either the mills that produce the paper must carry ISO certification (based on a framework for the development of an environmental management system EMS and the supporting audit programme) or the paper must carry the EU Ecolabel (lifecycle based approach).

7 Raw material origin 7 100% recycled or at least 50% recycled* min. post-consumption** ECO-RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTS Certified* (FSC or PEFC standards) Non certified* Non certified manufacturing process ISO EU Ecolabel Manufacturing process * according to the criteria of FSC or PEFC standards. ** with the remaining percentage fulfilling the requirement of FSC or PEFC standards.

8 AIMING FOR 5 GREEN STAR PRODUCTS 8 A 5-star product = EU Ecolabel at least 50% recycled fibres Antalis believes that a paper achieves environmental excellence when it is made from at least 50% post-consumer recycled fibres, with the remaining in line with FSC or PEFC standards, and also carries EU Ecolabel certification. Why choosing a recycled paper? What does the EU Ecolabel guarantees? The two principles combine to form a virtuous mix, which will be detailed below. THE ADVANTAGES OF RECYCLED PAPER + To reduce pressure on wood resources Recycled fibre comes from waste collection whereas virgin fibre comes from natural resources i.e. THE 3 R s REDUCE RE-USE RECYCLE wood from trees. Recycling therefore has the advantage of using existing paper to produce pulp, hence reducing demand for wood resources by 24 trees per ton of paper. To save energy and water Recycled paper mills require less energy, less water and safer chemicals overall, primarily for pulp making. Typical savings from producing recycled paper vs virgin paper are estimated to be on average 33% 1 for energy, 49% 1 for water. To reduce CO 2 emissions Recycling gives paper new life, an essential benefit of recycled paper, as the paper can be recycled from 4 to 7 times before its fibres become too short for recycling. Compared to virgin paper s manufacturing process and due to the lower use of energy, 1 Source: Paperwork: Comparing Recycled to Virgin Paper for the RePaper Project presented by environmental paper network, April 2012.

9 recycled paper also saves about 37% 1 of greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, the end of life stages of paper (especially landfilling and incineration) contribute significantly to global warming (an average of 1/3 of its whole life cycle impact). By using recycled paper, you avoid this stage, and thus the associated emissions. THE EU ECOLABEL GUARANTEES Lowest air emissions (SO 2, NO X ) Lowest greenhouse gas emissions Highest standards of process water cleaning (COD) Reduced electric and fossil energy consumption Minimum impact on the environment (raw material selection, certified or recycled) Waste recovery Reduction / prevention of risks to human health related to the use of hazardous substances 9 RECYCLING PAPER SAVES 1 TON OF RECYCLING PAPER SAVES 33 of energy 49% of water 24 trees between 174 and % of greenhouse gas emissions 55% of CO 2 emissions 3m 3 of landfill space

10 10 ARE YOU A 5-STAR COMPANY? For any company serious about environmental responsibility and aiming to demonstrate a 5-star environmental performance to stakeholders, choosing recycled paper carrying the EU Ecolabel is the way to go. Furthermore, opting for recycled paper no longer means compromising on quality, performance, appearance or whiteness as tremendous progress has been made in its production.

11 A SELECTION OF ANTALIS 5 GREEN STAR PAPERS 11 This section highlights most of the Antalis product ranges granted with 5 green stars, i.e. produced from a minimum of 50% postconsumer recycled fibres, with the remaining in line with FSC or PEFCTM standards, and carrying the EU Ecolabel.
