Sustainability Certification

Cradle to Cradle Certified®

Created for today, designed for a sustainable future – Mondi’s Uncoated Fine Paper is the first pan-European mill group with a wide portfolio that is Cradle to Cradle Certified®

As a global standard, the Cradle to Cradle Certified® certification makes it easy for you to find and purchase products that contribute to circularity and promote sustainability.

We are proud to say that Mondi’s wide premium uncoated fine paper portfolio from the mills in Austria, Slovakia and Russia is Cradle to Cradle Certified® (Bronze).

What does it mean to be Cradle to Cradle Certified®?

With this certification, we strive not only to reduce our negative impact on the environment, but to create a positive ecological footprint. To be Cradle to Cradle Certified® means to take action on sustainability by using non-toxic, recyclable materials that create nutrients instead of waste – and  that’s what we do.

The Cradle to Cradle Certified® standard stands for a paradigm shift away from the linear towards the circular economy, by reducing waste, recirculating materials throughout the product life cycle, and ensuring that products have a positive impact. The Cradle to Cradle Certified® certification also supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals. ​​​​​​​

Taking inspiration from nature

Turning emissions into nutrients

Trees are a crucial component of the paper production process – but they are also a prime example of the Cradle to Cradle® concept at its core. Even a tree is not entirely emission-free. A fruit tree may have many beautiful blossoms, but only a handful of these will transform into new trees.

Luckily, the remaining blossoms do not go to waste; rather they become nutrients that sustain other organisms in their own life cycles. While the tree itself provides oxygen for humans and animals, the fallen blossoms become additional nutrients for the tree and other life within in its ecosystem.


We at Mondi understand that nature has limited resources and that materials must keep flowing in cycles. That is why we use recycled components for our recycled portfolio, and why our process of paper-making aspires to create materials that can safely return to nature. This is how we feed the cycle of sustainability – safe virgin fibres enter the paper-making cycle, and recycling these fibres allows them to be recirculated again and again.

Sustainability is at the heart of what we do

Cradle to Cradle Certified® certification: The global standard for our portfolio (Bronze)

The Cradle to Cradle Certified® certification provides a clear guarantee that all of our brands from Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper production in Austria, Slovakia and Russia live up to the high standards and demanding requirements of this certification. We have taken on the challenge of having our extended portfolio certified in order to provide you with peace of mind when choosing any of our papers.

And we don’t stop there! The Cradle to Cradle Certified® certification must be renewed every two years. This process requires ongoing advancements and shows that we are ready to take on this commitment, seek innovation and provide you with measurable improvement in every aspect of the paper making process:

  • Material health: We commit to avoiding the use of toxic materials and phasing out any materials that are not classified as safe.
  • Product circularity: We commit to making our products with materials that can be safely returned to nature or industry.
  • Clean air & climate protection: We commit to offsetting our carbon emissions and powering our future manufacturing with clean, renewable energy. 
  • Water & soil stewardship: We commit to protecting our soils and clean water and improving our energy and water efficiency.
  • Social fairness: We commit to contributing to a fair and equitable society and making a positive difference in the lives of our employees and communities. ​​​​​​​

All of our Mondi Uncoated Fine Papers from our mills in Austria, Slovakia and Russia have achieved the Bronze Cradle to Cradle Certified® level. We acknowledge the strict audit results and are happy to score high in the areas of xx, but we also see this as a call to improve in xx. These results and our ongoing actions are closely linked to our Mondi Action Plan 2030, in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
