Mondi's approach in measuring the total set of greenhouse gas emissions caused by its most important grades is accredited by Climate Partner, a leading industry expert. The Pulp & paper Industry (PPI) award for Environmental Strategy of the Year won by Mondi in 2010 reflected its important role in the global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect the world's ecosystems. Following efficiency improvements at various mills around the globe, Mondi has reduced CO2 emissions by 40,000 tonnes; invested in anaerobic waste water treatment plants and follows a Zero Waste strategy across all operations.
At Mondi, responsible, effective product stewardship involves actively managing the environmental, safety and health impacts of products throughout their lifecycle. Mondi bases its product stewardship approach on the Life-Cycle Initiative set out in the United Nations Environmental Programme, which advocates an integrated approach. Mondi also supports the World Commission for Environment and Development assertion that sustainability ‘meets present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs'.
"Mondi's customers can discover all innovative paper and packaging solutions of the Green Range product family in eight languages in our Green Range brochure or by visiting the newly launched microsite www.mondigroup.com/GoGreen", concluded Peter Machacek.
Moreover the Mondi booth at the Interpack fair in Düsseldorf will offer the opportunity to see the Green Range products and get to know more details from 12.-18. May 2011.
