• Clairefontaine is currently the only European manufacturer making paper for its own products. This guarantees not only consistent quality but also controls the environmental impact of the manufacturing process.

• Clairefontaine paper is made from pulp and wood by-products from forests independently certified by PEFC or FSC as sustainably managed.

• Clairefontaine has reduced its water consumption through an advanced recycling method. The water is returned to the River Meurthe cleaner than when it arrived at the mill. The water is so clean when it is returned to the river people can swim, boat and fish downstream within sight of the mill.

• Clairefontaine paper is chlorine-free. A gift of nature, a mineral called calcium carbonate gives Clairefontaine paper its famous trademark qualities of extra white and ultra smooth.

• The ink used in all Clairefontaine and Rhodia products abides by the most stringent European environmental standards. The inks are water-based and made from vegetable oil pigments.

• Clairefontaine operates a dual power generation system (electricity and steam) which supplies 80% of the mill’s needs.

• Through a plan for improving sorting at source and recycling/transforming, Clairefontaine has reduced the quantity of solid waste produced by the plant by over two-thirds. Packaging is designed to produce the least waste (returnable containers, bulk packaging, etc.) The waste from the water treatment plant is converted into agricultural compost. This is a first for the paper industry.

Clairefontaine was established on the site of a paper mill built in 1512. The mill is located in the Meurthe River valley in the Vosges, an area known for the production of paper. This region has always had abundant resources for paper-making: clear, flowing water, vast forests and skilled craftsmen.

Clairefontaine began to manufacture notebooks in 1890. The company is now managed by sixth generation family members.
