Delivering against our strategy in 2022

The KPIs shown below are based on the Group's continuing operations (which exclude the Russian operations) for 2022, 2021 and for sustainability metrics, 2020. All other prior period amounts include the Group's Russian operations. The different presentation basis is represented by the vertical dotted line.

A chart showing Mondi's ROCE performance.

Return on capital employed (ROCE)

Why this is a KPI
ROCE provides a measure of the efficient and effective use of capital in our operations. We compare ROCE to our current estimated Group pre-tax weighted average cost of capital to measure the value we create.

2022 performance
The Group achieved a ROCE of 23.7%.

A chart showing Mondi's TSR performance.

Total Shareholder Return (TSR)

Why this is a KPI
TSR provides a market-related measure of the Group’s progress against our objective of delivering long-term value for our shareholders. TSR measures the total return to Mondi’s shareholders, including both share price movement and dividends paid. 

2022 performance
While the recommended total dividend per share for the year represents an 8% increase on 2021, the share price performance in the year was negatively impacted by the Russian invasion of Ukraine given the Group’s significant exposure to Russia (around 20% of total EBITDA over the previous three years).

A chart showing Mondi's TRCR performance.

Total Recordable Case Rate (TRCR)

Why this is a KPI
Keeping people safe and healthy is a moral and a business imperative that applies to all who work for and on behalf of Mondi. Our 24-hour safety mindset supports our goal of sending everybody home safely, every day.

2022 performance
In 2022, our TRCR was 0.63, representing an 8% improvement on our 2020 baseline. We regretfully experienced one fatality at our Frantschach mill (Austria) in the year and two life-altering injuries.

Underlying EBITDA

Why this is a KPI

A chart showing Mondi's waste to landfill.

Why this is a KPI

Reusable, recyclable or compostable products

Why this is a KPI

2022 performance
We estimate that 82% of our revenue in 2022 was generated from products that were reusable, recyclable or compostable. We are working towards our ambitious target of reaching 100% by 2025.
