Mondi supports UNICEF’s ‘Water Supply for Aleppo’

Mondi has made another donation to UNICEF in connection with the company's biannual customer satisfaction survey. To encourage customers to participate, Mondi promised a donation to a charity fund for each completed survey received. This year the initiative resulted in a total donation of €37,250 (£32,980), far surpassing the €27,000 (£23,905) raised by the 2015 Mondi survey.

UNICEF will use the money received from Mondi as start-up funding for a new project called 'Water Supply for Aleppo'. Much of the infrastructure in this Syrian city has been damaged by war. With the donation, UNICEF can restore a functioning system of running water and plumbing to five schools in Aleppo, enabling Syrian children to once again attend schools with proper hygienic facilities. UNICEF's 'Water Supply for Aleppo' fund is open to further donations from the public so that more water supply infrastructure can be repaired in the city.

Dr Gudrun Berger, Executive Director, Austrian Committee for UNICEF said, "we are grateful for Mondi's contributions to various UNICEF projects over the years. Their clever approach of linking their company initiative to charitable fundraising has again resulted in a significant donation for an urgently needed programme."

Albert Klinkhammer, Mondi Group Marketing Director added, "we are delighted that the increased participation in our customer survey has resulted in our much larger donation to UNICEF this year. We are pleased to support this project that will benefit children in Syria, and we hope that our start-up funding will inspire others to donate to this very worthy cause. We look for opportunities to make social responsibility a part of what we do. Every day."

Industrial automation makes way for information automation
Today, most manufacturing processes are automated on some level, and only growing more so. But can the same be said for our cognitive activities and information-related processes? Collecting, analysing, and extracting value from data is surely the next step in optimising industrial processes, yet the way it is currently treated in terms of technological investment and prioritisation would suggest otherwise. This is according to Jason Chester, Director of Global Channel Programs, InfinityQS.
