Sustainability is embedded in everything we do. Our commitment to sustainability has contributed to our strong performance across the business and our commitment to sustainable development is fundamental to our success.
We are taking action to address some of the world’s biggest challenges. From sustainable wood fibre, responsible manufacturing and climate change, to circular economy, to inspiring people – Mondi’s approach is Sustainable by Design.
The WBCSD analysed Mondi’s 2018 Sustainable Development Report as part of Reporting Matters, a worldwide analysis of 159 corporate sustainability reports designed to drive effectiveness of sustainability reporting. Mondi was recognised for being among the top ten of reports globally.
Mondi’s Sustainable Development Report received praise for its audience-led approach to reporting and tailoring content for different audiences. The Mondi report is highlighted as a category leader for its ‘Accessibility’, including praise for its complementary web content, the interactive online version of the report, as well as producing an Integrated Report primarily targeted for shareholders. The WBCSD further recognised Mondi for being one of the strongest examples of disclosure on sustainability governance and transparency in its communication of sustainability topics and decisions made by the Board.
In advance of this year’s FT Water Summit, Viv McMenamin, CEO, Mondi South Africa, and Morné du Plessis, CEO, WWF South Africa, remind us that water risk and stewardship is too complex a challenge and too great an opportunity to explore alone.
Mondi Group is a member of Climate Savers, WWF’s climate leadership programme for businesses. Having cut our CO2 emissions by 38% between 2004 and 2017, we have also committed ourselves to reducing specific production-related greenhouse gas emissions to 0.25 tonnes CO2e per tonne of production by 2050, in line with climate science targets to keep global temperature rises under 2°C.
Mondi has improved its scores across all categories in the Environmental Paper Company Index (EPCI) 2017, a WWF tool to promote transparency and continual improvement in the pulp, paper and packaging sector. Mondi has participated in the Index since its inception in 2010 and has demonstrated continuous environmental improvement over time. See the complete results and visualisations of the WWF EPCI 2017.
Created by the global index provider FTSE Russell, the FTSE4Good Index Series is designed to identify companies that demonstrate strong Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices measured against globally recognised standards.
Mondi is proud to confirm that this year, following an independent assessment according to the FTSE4Good criteria, it has once again satisfied the requirements to remain a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index Series.
The FTSE4Good indices are used by a wide variety of market participants to create and assess responsible investment funds and other products, and Mondi is proud of its continued inclusion in this Index Series since 2008.
WWF and Mondi Group launched a global strategic partnership in 2014, following many years of local collaboration, to promote responsible forestry, water stewardship and a sustainable packaging and paper sector.
In 2017, we extended our global partnership by another three years to build on progress made in the first phase.
