Framework for profitable growth

Strategic focus 

Our clear strategic focus is on growing our packaging interests, while at the same time investing appropriately to maintain and improve the competitiveness of our uncoated fine paper operations. 

Strategic value drivers 

Our strategic value drivers give us the framework for creating value for our stakeholders. They ensure we focus on the right things and help us to make sound business decisions.  

While all three strategic drivers are relevant to each business, priorities differ across the value chain.

We are passionate about performance, driving productivity, efficiency and margin improvement

We invest in our high-quality, low-cost assets, keeping us competitive and giving us sustainable cost advantages

We work with our customers to find innovative solutions, growing our product range and geographic reach

Our passion for performance is important across all our businesses and we constantly focus on driving productivity, improving efficiencies and reducing costs. Our value drivers of investing in our high-quality, low-cost assets and working with our customers to find innovative solutions apply to all our operations, although the priorities differ across the value chain.

Investing in our high-quality, low-cost assets is particularly important for our upstream pulp and paper assets where our products are generally more commoditised and a low-cost production base is key. Our primary focus is on developing our presence in markets that offer us exposure to long-term growth and inherent cost advantages.

Working with our customers to find innovative solutions is critical in our downstream coverting operations, as our ability to develop cutting edge products and tailored solutions is key to our success. We target growth in markets where we can leverage our competencies.

Our strategic value drivers give us the framework for delivering value-enhancing growth. We continue to seek out opportunities for growth and cost optimisation through capital investments, acquisitions and asset rationalisation.
