MAP2030 (Mondi Action Plan 2030) sets out the actions we will take to meet our ambitious 2030 sustainability goals. We believe that by focusing on circular driven solutions, created by empowered people, taking action on climate we will have the most positive impact.

MAP2030 is built on a foundation of responsible business practices spanning business ethics and governance, human rights, communities, procurement and environmental impact. Each area has commitments and targets to guide our action, including work on human rights due diligence; ongoing investment in our communities; 100% responsible sourcing of wood fibre; and air emission and water targets to minimise our environmental impact.
