The CEO Water Mandate is a unique public-private initiative that mobilises business leaders for water stewardship. Established by the UN Global Compact in 2007, the Mandate is rooted in the belief that cross-sectoral collaboration on shared water goals is the most effective path to more sustainable water management and that the private sector can be a critical partner in this effort. Its structure covers six key areas and is designed to assist companies in developing a comprehensive approach to water management: direct operations; supply chain and watershed management; collective action; public policy; community engagement; and transparency.
Mondi became a signatory of the CEO Water Mandate in 2015 and regularly discloses its water use and waste water management. We also participate in CDP’s water programme where we detail our water strategy, policy and community engagement.
