Transparency is a pre-requisite for a true understanding of total value chain sustainability. Beyond product level transparency, WWF also recognises company level transparency as demonstrated in the WWF Environmental Paper Company Index 2015. The bi-annual Index will be published again in November 2017.

At Mondi we attach great importance to the sustainability of the wood, fibre and paper we source. The productive capability, biodiversity and community needs of the forests/plantations that we own, manage and source material from is a key element of our management approach and systems. WWF’s Check Your Paper scheme is an excellent benchmarking tool that helps us to illustrate our commitment to transparency as well as the environmental footprint of our papers.
