Quo Vadis, company with its roots in France
It is in France, in 1952 that the first Quo Vadis diary grid was born. Dr. Francis Georges Beltrami invented a totally new concept of time management. L’Agenda Planning® was than created. A few years later, as he encounters a strong demand for this type of diary, he decide to create “Editions Quo Vadis” in Marseille to industrialise his invention.
Today Quo Vadis head office is located in Carquefou, France, close to Nantes where the factory is located.

An International presence for Quo Vadis
At Quo Vadis
The Quo Vadis charter for the environment is part of its strategy for long term development. The idea being that the charter brings together its economic, social and environmental objectives.
Our paper is made from paper pulp from certified forest
Paper represents 85% of the total weight in a diary. The onus is on our company to have a strict environmental policy, starting from the manufacturing of paper pulp all the way to the product distribution in the stores.
Therefore, 100% of our paper comes from forest certified for their environmental management. This way, logging does not reduce forest surface. It permits to maintain in place young trees. These young trees absorb more CO2 and are considered as the lungs of the earth. This method also allows better farming, cleaning and maintenance of our forest.
Quo Vadis insures the all the non recycled paper used in the manufacturing of its diaries and notebooks are certified ECF (Elementary Chlorine free). This means that no elementary chlorine has been used during the process of whitening the paper paste.
Reuse your diary cover from one year to the next
Quo Vadis offers a large variety of diaries with removable covers. We are proud to offer our customers the possibility to keep their diary covers. This means that our customer can keep the cover they chose with care and just buy the refills from one year to the next, thereby saving money and protecting the environment.

Choice of suppliers
Quo Vadis always tries to do better. When choosing its suppliers, Quo Vadis requires that its suppliers have the same environmental objectives.
Quo Vadis and the long term development

- This policy is aimed at maintaining a high level of competence in each of trades and to have everybody involved.
