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.
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.
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 own brands NAUTILUS®, SUMO® and others also put the important effects for the environment first, in addition to all quality features and characteristics.
Climate neutral in bright recycled white: produced CO2-neutrally, from CO2-neutral paper. Awarded with the "Blauer Engel" since even the window film is made from renewable raw materials.
With our CO2-neutral envelopes made from recycled paper for maximum performance in turnaround times and document management.
With distinctive blue sky inner print, provides high opacity and privacy. The CO2 neutral paper has high whiteness. 100% FSC® recycled material. Awarded paper with the EU Ecolabel "EU Flower".

Our new all-round talent: the wonder bag for easy shipping and returns of a wide variety of eCommerce items. Flexible, stable, high-quality feel, practical to use.
By using recycled material, the production of the envelopes fits into a natural cycle. Supporting the natural balance.
Recycled paper is produced from recycled waste paper, cardboard and cardboard or the secondary fibres obtained from them. In addition to the conservation of wood reserves, the advantage is the lower energy and water consumption compared to conventional paper production.
A large part of our comparatively low ecological footprint is due to our MAILgreen philosophy, which includes the following measures:
CO2-neutral products and production (on customer request) • 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.
Climate protection and energy efficiency are the most urgent challenges of our time.
This goal cannot be achieved without a committed contribution from the business community.
Klimaschutz-Unternehmen e.V. is an association of companies in Germany that play a pioneering role in climate protection and energy efficiency through the consistent implementation of outstanding innovations.
FSC® stands for "Forest Stewardship Council®". It is an international certification system for responsible forest management, but also considers the further processing paths ("chain of custody"). Look out for our FSC®-certified products.
PEFC stands for "Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes". It is an international forest certification system, but also considers the further processing paths ("chain of custody").
The "Blauer Engel" is an environmental label awarded in Germany since 1978 and guarantees that products and services meet high standards in terms of environmental, health and usage properties. The products are assessed on the basis of their entire life cycle.
The Nordic Swan is an eco-label established in 1989 by the Nordic Council of Ministers. It is a Type I eco-label, as a statement is made by an independent third party about the environmental performance of the product compared to competing products.
ISO 9001 defines the requirements for an organisation's quality management system (QMS). The aim of the standard is to improve the performance of companies at all levels.
ISO 14001 sets out the globally recognised requirements for an environmental management system. Here, the focus is on a continuous improvement process to achieve defined goals related to the environmental performance of an organisation.
ISO 50001 defines the requirements for setting up systematic energy management in an organisation. The goal of the standard is to make a significant contribution to environmental and climate protection by tapping unused energy efficiency potential, reducing energy costs and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
We at Mayer-Group have set a goal of developing and successfully marketing innovative products.
Our Code of Conduct reflects our obligation as a socially responsible business to fulfil the expectations of our stakeholders.
It encompasses the principles and rules for ethical corporate behaviour.
Children are close to our hearts! We support valuable projects that positively promote children's development and open up potential and perspectives for them to become strong personalities. We talk about this so that these excellent initiatives receive attention and find more supporters.
The commitment of Gambiahilfe has long since become a matter close to our own hearts in the Mayer Group. During regular visits abroad, the status of initiated projects is documented and an overview is gained of the situation on the spot and of the next offers of help to be implemented.
In addition to providing educational opportunities for children and young people, Gambiahilfe-Hohenlohe also organises medical care on site to compensate at least a little for the lack of infrastructure. All volunteers pay for flights and accommodation from their own personal funds. There are no administrative costs either in Germany or in Africa. This means that every cent of the donations can be used for the children. The energetic on-site help is provided during the supporters' holidays or free time. Whether it is a daily hot meal for the children, equipment for the schools and kindergartens or the construction and maintenance of the mobile dental station - even small donations can do a lot of good.
Mayer Group supports Lucky Letter
One of these outstanding projects was created for children by the educationalist, psychologist and sociologist (M. A.) Yvonne Heim: Lucky Letter. Lucky Letter is a little letter that asks when is a life happy? What does it take? Who do you need for that? And what can you do for it? These are precisely the questions that Yvonne Heim asked herself as a mother: "How can I give my child the tools for a happy life, beyond material things? How is that supposed to work in hectic everyday life?"
Lucky Letter brings happiness to children between the ages of five to ten in a 12-part monthly letter series and enables them, together with their parents or (great) grandparents, to discover, remember and experience the little things in life that are actually quite big. Learn more at luckyletter.de
