Mondi recognised in three categories of WWF’s Environmental Paper Awards

International packaging and paper Group, Mondi Group, has been recognised in three categories of WWF's Environmental Paper Awards in 2016. The three categories were named as 'Transparency', 'Best Environmental Performance Paper Brands', and 'Striving for Continual Improvement'.

In the category 'Transparency' Mondi was recognised for publishing the forest, climate and water footprint of 92 per cent of its uncoated fine paper brands. In the category 'Best Environmental Performance Paper Brands', 32 of its uncoated fine paper brands received this award, reaching over 80 per cent of achievable scores. In the category 'Striving for Continual Improvement' its packaging paper brands were recognised for using a proactive approach in assessing the forest, water and climate footprint for internal purposes, using WWF ́s Check your Paper Method.

David Hathorn, Chief executive of Mondi Group said, "these awards confirm the importance of good environmental stewardship and recognise our philosophy of continuous improvement in reducing our environmental footprint. Our participation in WWF's Environmental Paper Company Index and Check your Paper right from the start made good business sense for us and provides assurance about our products to our customers."

Mondi and WWF have worked together for many years and in 2014 entered into a three-year strategic partnership that focuses on promoting environmental stewardship in the packaging and paper sectors, minimising the impacts of Mondi's operations on forests, climate and water and sharing information to encourage sustainable practices in the industry.

Peter Orisich, CEO Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper added, "at Mondi we attach great importance to the sustainability of the wood, fibre and paper we source and strive to act sustainably – every day. The productive capability, biodiversity and community needs of the forest plantations that we own, manage and source material from are key elements of our management approach and systems. WWF's Check Your Paper scheme is an excellent benchmarking tool that helps us to illustrate our commitment to transparency and improve the environmental footprint of our papers."
