Lecta publishes its 2023 Sustainability Report

Lecta has published its 2023 Sustainability Report, reaffirming its firm commitment tosustainability and the constant steps it is taking to achieve the 2030 Agenda targets.

Lecta’s ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) strategy is a key pillar of its business strategy, and this second Sustainability Report highlights improvements in the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) defined in 2022 in the three essential ESG areas. It also
presents a more complete and detailed analysis of the achievements and progress made last year.

“By setting ambitious sustainability goals and implementing concrete actions, we are actively contributing to a more sustainable world. As the CEO, I take pride in reporting our ongoing endeavors to reduce our environmental impact and carbon footprint, prioritize renewable resources, and promote social responsibility across our operations,” says Gilles Van Nieuwenhuyzen, CEO of Lecta.

Lecta attaches the utmost importance to ambitious targets and responsible actions in the field of sustainability. Completely aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), it contributes to 11 of the 17 goals, as detailed in the report.

The company’s ambitious roadmap for reducing CO2 emissions and its decarbonization and energy efficiency plan are key factors in its efforts to protect the environment and the climate.
The report presents Lecta’s progress on calculating its Organizational and Product Carbon Footprints (OCF and PCF) based on the SBTi (Science-Based Targets initiative) methodology, a global standard for the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Other sections of the 2023 Sustainability Report focuses on Lecta’s principles and achievements in the fields of social and governance issues. Ensuring the health and safety of its employees and respecting the people and communities in which it operates are top
priorities for the company. In addition to the solid foundations of the Group Code of Ethics, the new policies and regulations implemented last year have served to further reinforce the high standard of Lecta’s business ethics.

With the slogan Creating with Passion, the report is presented through the lens of the evocative brush strokes and work of different artists from the last two centuries. Famous groundbreaking painters like Edvard Munch, Paul Klee, Juan Gris, Wassily Kandinsky,
Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Cézanne and others employed precision, creativity and technique to create unique, lasting works.
