Taking Action on Climate

We are committed to protecting the environment we operate in to mitigate climate change and reduce our ecological footprint.

Protecting our environment

We acknowledge that as a business, we play a critical role in addressing climate change, setting targets and innovating to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and help drive the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Taking committed steps to reduce our CO2e emissions will help minimise our contribution to climate change and improve efficiency as we reduce our energy use and deliver value through sustainable products and solutions. Maintaining our ecosystems’ resilience is critical for climate change mitigation and achieving our climate goals.    

Taking action on climate is an integral part of our Mondi Action Plan 2030 (MAP2030)

Our key climate topics

We are working to reduce our GHG emissions in line with a 1.5°C scenario.

Our approved science-based Net-Zero targets cover GHG emissions from our operations and supply chain (Scope 1, 2 and 3).

2023 performance

We achieved a reduction in absolute Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 22% compared with our 2019 baseline, and 4% since the previous year. Since 2004, we have reduced our absolute GHG emissions by 2.57 million tonnes CO2e, which is a 55% reduction.

78% of fuels used in our pulp and paper mills were from renewable sources.

Our Scope 3 emissions were estimated to represent 55% of our total GHG emissions. We reduced our Scope 3 emissions by around 260,000 tonnes CO2e. This is a reduction of 9% against 2022 and a 21% reduction against the 2019 baseline. The reduction was mainly due to market-related lower production volumes requiring fewer raw materials.

In 2023, we continued to engage with our suppliers on GHG reduction and have conducted our first Virtual Supplier Event with over 100 participants from key suppliers.

Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions in total were reduced to 0.34 million tonnes in 2023, which is a 21% reduction compared with our 2019 baseline, and 7% since last year.
