Creating sustainable packaging and paper

Consumer demand for sustainable products continues to grow. As a key part of Mondi Action Plan 2030 (MAP2030) we are committed to make 100% of our packaging and paper portfolio reusable, recyclable or compostable (based on revenue), with 85% achieved in 2023.  

Our focus lies on innovation to develop new solutions, keep materials in circulation and engage with customers and partners to drive progress at scale. We consider the environmental impacts of our products at each stage of the value chain, from the sourcing of raw materials, to material efficiency, product design and safety and a sustainable end-of-life.

Based on revenue in 2023, 85% of our portfolio of packaging and paper solutions is reusable, recyclable or compostable (82% in 2022).

Our focus continues to be on our Flexible Packaging products, as 100% of the portfolios from our Corrugated Packaging and Uncoated Fine Paper businesses are already recyclable or compostable. By the end of 2023, we had a sustainable alternative in place, or identified and in development, for 94% of our Flexible Packaging products, with the ambition to achieve 100% by 2025.

In 2023, we conducted product impact assessments (PIAs) for 1,145 products, and calculated 146 Product Carbon Footprints (PCFs).

Circularity at Mondi

Our approach to circularity

We keep sustainability at the centre of our innovation and R&D efforts. Our approach to circularity encompasses several key elements, including how we design our products, how we measure our progress across our portfolio, our product impact assessments, R&D and innovation capabilities, in-house laboratories and cross-value chain collaborations with customers and suppliers.

See two of these key elements, our ‘Sustainable Design Principles’ and our ‘Path to Circularity Scorecard’, illustrated below or download our Circularity at Mondi PDF.
