Recently, Mondi’s focus on sustainability has received public recognition in the form of five awards – from WWF International and Pulp and Paper International (PPI). These awards are recognition of Mondi’s ongoing commitment to sustainability including its environmental, risk and safety management.
Mondi, the international packaging and paper group, has received several international accolades from PPI and WWF International – one of the world´s largest conservation organisations. On 12 November last year, Mondi was announced the winner of the “Environmental Strategy of the Year 2012” award by PPI in recognition of its approach in managing the social, environmental, safety and health impacts of products through their life-cycle.
The PPI Awards recognise the achievements of companies, mills and individuals in the global pulp and paper sector. On the same evening, judges – including the managing director of the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) and economic advisor of Resource Information Systems Inc. (RISI) – awarded Mondi SCP in Slovakia the top prize for “Managing Risk and Safety 2012” and “Energy Improvements of the Year 2012”.
A few days later, WWF International announced Mondi as one of the winners of the “Environmental Paper Awards 2012” in the category ‘Transparency’ and the “Best Environmental Performance Paper Brands Award” for 100% recycled NAUTILUS® SuperWhite, produced in Europe.
Emmanuelle Neyroumande, Manager of WWF International´s global pulp and paper work commented: “Mondi has been applauded by WWF for transparency on its environmental footprint, showing that the company takes their environmental and social responsibility seriously. We welcome that Mondi has published 92% of Mondi-branded uncoated fine papers on WWF’s Check Your Paper database of eco-rated papers.”
“I am very proud of these awards which recognise our focus on and work in sustainable development” says David Hathorn, CEO of Mondi Group.
