Mondi acts on pledges

In releasing its 2018 Sustainable Packaging and Paper by Design report Mondi, the global company has revealed positive progress on reducing climate change through the introduction of biomass and recovery boilers in Mondi’s mills leading to 100 per cent electricity self-sufficiency, with 64 per cent of fuel from renewable sources.

The switch to renewable energy has resulted in a 14.5 per cent reduction in specific CO2e emissions against the 2014 commitment baseline. Addressing the growing challenge of global waste management and as part of the company’s commitment to the circular economy, it became a signatory of The New Plastics Economy Global Commitment in 2018 marking a step change in the packaging industry.

Since the 2015 baseline, Mondi has made good progress towards its 2020 targets and in particular around sustainable fibre, climate change and biodiversity & ecosystems. Mondi has continued its sound forest management practices in line with its Sustainable Working Forest model. It has maintained 100 per cent certification for owned and leased forest lands and the company remains committed to zero deforestation. As part of Mondi’s strategic global partnership with WWF a collaborative focus has remained on the stewardship of climate and energy, fresh water and forests – both within Mondi’s own operations and across sectors through engaging others. Mondi joined the WWF Climate Savers Programme in 2018 and set a carbon emission target using the science-based target setting methodology.

The company remains committed to the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, reporting its communication on progress at ‘Advanced Level’ and has been included in the FTSE4Good Index Series since 2008.
