As a global paper and packaging manufacturer, Mondi's Green Range was first launched in 2006 within the business unit Uncoated Fine Paper to underline the areas where Mondi can make the biggest contributions to eco-friendly production. Forest + Water+ Air became the basis of the Mondi Green Range, which has now grown to include products from all business units and acts as a platform to deliver messages about new green initiatives and products developed by Mondi. Ultimately, the goal of the Green Range is to implement inherently sustainable practices.
As part of Mondi's role in the responsible management of the world's forests, water and air, among other activities Mondi plants 40 million trees each year to ensure sustained growth and works together with the WWF to support the rehabilitation of the wetlands in South Africa. Moreover, the CO2 emissions for each sheet of paper have been reduced by 15%. Mondi has been lauded by several organisations for its eco-conscious behaviours. In 2011, both Mondi Group and Mondi SCP mill in Ružomberok, Slovakia received PPI awards for Environmental Strategy of the Year. The same year, the WWF ranked Mondi No. 1 in the WWF's Paper Company Environmental Index. For more information about Mondi's green initiatives and products, please visit www.mondigroup.com/greenrange.
