We are incredibly proud to be part of the WWF's Environmental Paper Company Index (EPCI) as it is an extremely relevant and important part of measuring Arjowiggins Graphic's environmental credentials. The EPCI has helped us to set ambitious goals and targets that have constantly pushed Arjowiggins Graphic to operate in a sustainable and transparent way.
Importantly, it also provides a non-biased analysis of our sustainability credentials for our customers - enabling them to make truly sustainable decisions based on up-to-date, environmental impact information.
We believe in transparency. Developing relations based on transparency and collaboration with stakeholders is one key part of Sofidel's efforts to help build a more sustainable society.
Metsä Group believes in open and transparent communication of sustainability and environmental performance. This year we participated for the first time in all the different product categories of EPCI.
In a global business, all players should be evaluated against fair and balanced criteria. UPM’s approach is highlighted in for example the company’s expansion of EMAS to cover operations in Uruguay and China, and in participation in WWF´s ECPI. UPM commends WWF’s initiative to widen the scope of the EPCI from fine papers to a wider Graphic paper scope including newsprint.
Stating and explaining environmental actions, ensuring a high level of transparency in the information presented, and committing ourselves to meeting new challenges all clearly demonstrate Lecta´s vigorous sustainability policy. Lecta communicates its environmental practices transparently and on a regular basis.
