We want to offer all school pupils, university students and business professionals the most innovative tools and we guarantee that we constantly strive to minimise the impact of our products on the environment.


Oxford Protégeons la forêt

By working together, we protect not only the forest, but also its surroundings.

Forest Management

At Oxford, we give you an environmental guarantee. As a stationery company, we are committed to using paper from 100% sustainably managed forests and responsible FSC® or PEFCTM certified or recycled sources.

The first brand in Europe to be certified with the European Ecolabel

In 2014, Oxford became the first stationery brand in France and Europe to be granted the official European Ecolabel. It guarantees a reduction in environmental impact throughout the product's life cycle, i.e. from sustainable forest management to the end of the product's life after use.

Oxford Economie Circulaire


We fight against resource waste

At Oxford, we follow circular economy principles by taking care to audit the management of renewable resources and by manufacturing recyclable products to reduce waste. For example:

Less than 10% of the materials used in the production of our notebooks are non-renewable.
• We manufacture our products primarily in Europe.
• We recycle 100% of our manufacturing waste, paper and plastic.
• We do not use single-use plastic in our finished products. All our products are designed to be used several times.
Oxford recycler pour garantir une deuxième vie


Recycling our products gives them a second life!

Oxford is the only brand to guarantee that its European Ecolabel certified notebooks are truly recyclable and will not interfere with the recycled paper manufacturing process. Oxford conducts annual laboratory tests according to the European Ecolabel recyclability criteria.
Finally, we promote a second life for our products. For example:
• Our Touareg range gives a second life to cardboard if it is recycled by its users
We also use our waste to make new products, as with the 2nd life elasticated folders. The recycled polypropylene cover is made from recycled manufacturing waste.
Oxford Bannir les produits toxiques

We do not use toxic products

• We replace toxic chemicals in our inks, coatings and adhesives.

• All our plastics are guaranteed to be free of hazardous substances as defined by the European REACH regulation. Furthermore, we refuse to use certain dangerous phthalates and heavy metals in our products.

Oxford Réduire l'empreinte carbone



We help to reduce our carbon footprint

The Life Cycle Assessment* of an Oxford notebook shows that 80% of the CO2 emissions come from the manufacturing of the writing paper.

These CO2 emissions have been reduced by using the best technical solutions available today

The European Ecolabel's stringent criteria ensure this reduction in greenhouse gases. This is why Oxford uses European Ecolabel certified paper.

* Data calculated in 2012 based on a study conducted by Hamelin and supported by PWC

Oxford Certifications



Our continuous improvement in performance is certified

In addition to the ecolabels, we obtained triple certification in 2016: ISO 9001 for quality, ISO 14001 for the environment, ISO 45001 for health and safety at work.
Some of our factories also hold ISO 50001 certification for energy management. Our manufacturing sites and warehouses are consequently improving their impact on the environment, reducing health and safety risks for their employees, while ensuring you receive quality products.
Oxford Responsabilité sociétale

Our social responsibility

• Since 2015, we have required our suppliers outside Europe to be audited according to the SMETA standard on employee rights, health and safety, the environment and business ethics. Our audit reports are also available to our customers in the international SEDEX database.
• We also launched 'Project Zero' in 2018 to significantly increase our health and safety requirements for our employees.
• At Oxford, we support local initiatives in each country rather than those on an international scale. Examples include the St Nicholas project in Germany, The Climb of Life in the UK and Fundació per la Creativació (The Creativation Foundation) in Spain.
