Absolute state 
of the future

We assume corporate social responsibility: climate protection, environmentally friendly strategies, responsible use of resources, and social commitments are central components of the Mayer Group's philosophy.

CSR IS A PASSIONAL MATTER 
IN THE MAYER GROUP

If nature and society are out of balance, successful business cannot take place. As a company, it is in our own interest to assume social responsibility and to plan and act for the future and future generations in the long term. We also pay attention to these values with our business partners. The Mayer Group has been doing this since its founding. We have committed ourselves, and we will continue to commit ourselves, to meet the challenges of our time with courage and action.

We love paper. And we love life.

SCIENCE BASED TARGETS INITIATIVE (SBTi)

The Mayer Group, along with its affiliated companies in Germany and abroad, has committed to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). This commitment provides us with a clear methodology to implement the goal of the Paris Agreement to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5°C. The SBTi enables us to pursue our climate targets in a scientifically sound and long-term manner. By adhering to these targets, we make an important contribution to the global effort against climate change.

LONG-TERM CLIMATE GOALS AND MEASURES 

The Mayer Group aims to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across the entire value chain (Scope 1, 2, and 3) by 2050. This includes direct emissions, purchased energy, and indirect emissions. To reach our goals, we rely on sustainable practices and technologies such as improving energy efficiency and using renewable energy. Additionally, we strengthen partnerships with suppliers and customers to develop innovative solutions.

OUR PATH TO NET-ZERO CO₂ EMISSIONS

We aim to have our targets validated by the SBTi in 2024, marking an important milestone. We view the path to net-zero not only as a responsibility but also as an opportunity to promote sustainable innovations and enhance our competitiveness. The Mayer Group will work towards these goals with determination and transparency to create a sustainable and climate-friendly future, making a positive contribution to climate protection.

MAILgreen - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, PRODUCTION AND ECONOMY

With the production of ecological products, such as the world's first climate-neutral envelope Envirelope®, we have been demonstrating our claim in this area since 2009. The CO2-neutral product received the " Blauer Engel" (Blue Angel) as an additional award. Our brands NAUTILUS®, SUMO®, and others place a high value on environmental friendliness alongside superior quality. By using paper-based shipping and packaging solutions in e-commerce and retail, we and our customers help to reduce plastic consumption.

THERE IS NOTHING GOOD.
UNLESS YOU DO IT. THE MAYER GROUP PUTS ITS PHILOSOPHY AND VALUES INTO PRACTICE AND LETS SUSTAINABLE ACTIONS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.

A large part of our comparatively low ecological footprint is due to our MAILgreen philosophy, which includes the following measures:

Commitment to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) • Climate-neutral products through CO2 offsetting • FSC® and PEFC certification • DIN EN ISO 14001 and DIN EN ISO 50001 certification • "Blue Angel" recycled paper • Green Energy production • Printing with water-based inks, use of water•soluble glues • Increased use of recycled paper • Use of deinkable flexo ink • Use of leftover ink for internal printing • Use of solar technology • Infrared drying to reduce electricity consumption • Optimised use of materials: narrower side flaps and thinner window film • window film made from renewable raw materials • recycling of paper and inks • cleaning and treatment of dirty water before discharge • use of rainwater to dilute flexo inks and for cleaning • use of reusable eco-boxes instead of disposable cardboard boxes • double-deck loading to reduce waste gases.
