Cradle to Cradle Certified®

Cradle to Cradle Certified® is a globally recognised measure of safer, more sustainable products made for the circular economy. This certification fits perfectly with our commitment to ensure a cycle of sustainability for our products.

Sustainable Products

Green Range

Our range of sustainable products

Green Range is Mondi’s umbrella trademark for sustainable paper solutions. All Mondi uncoated fine paper mill brands are part of the Green Range. They are produced from FSC™ or PEFC™ certified wood from sustainably managed forests or 100% recycled paper, or are produced totally chlorine free (TCF). This is how consumers can contribute to a better environment.

Green Insight

​​​​​​​Cradle to Cradle Certified® and ​​​​​​​CO₂ neutrality. 

Cycle of Sustainability


The possibility to create high-quality paper from a waste product is a great thing. It means making the most of the resources we have. However, paper cannot be recycled indefinitely. After around four to six lifecycles, the fibre is no longer suitable for recycling.


Even with the most thorough post-consumer collection of recovered paper, we would run out of usable paper to recycle. This is why we produce many of our paper brands with so-called fresh fibre taken from sustainably grown forests. This fibre is then turned into regular professional printing or office paper.


Unlike traditional producers of recycled paper, we are in the fortunate position to be able to cover every aspect of the cycle of sustainability. Our mills all over Europe all use pulp from sustainably managed forests exclusively, which either are from Mondi-managed forests or bought from the world market.

FAQ

Our partner, the environmental consultancy ClimatePartner provides you with the latest information on our certificates. Please follow this link to see the Color Copy certificate.
We offset our CO₂ emissions by supporting accredited projects. Our current one is the Hydropower project in Parana, Brazil. Read more about the project in this reference story.
Climate change is a global problem. CO₂ neutrality is based on the principle that greenhouse gas emissions have a damaging effect on the climate – globally. Therefore, in terms of climate protection the exact origins of the emissions are irrelevant as are the specific locations where emission avoidance takes place. Mondi supports those countries that are most affected by climate change. We invest in energy efficiency and biomass projects in our operations in Europe and all over the world. The Kyoto mechanisms like Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and Joint implementation (JI) aim to support projects in developing countries. In addition, European projects which aim to reduce CO₂ emissions are mainly obligatory projects – investing in them could lead to double counting of the available certificates.
The first step towards developing a CO₂ neutral product is the calculation of all CO₂ emissions produced in the product’s life cycle, otherwise known as the Product Carbon Footprint. The Product Carbon Footprint was calculated together with the environmental consultancy ClimatePartner and in accordance with the Confederation of European Paper Producers’ (CEPI) 10 toes standard for carbon footprint calculation. Using this framework, Mondi presented a standardised, concise statement detailing the environmental impact of its products on climate change. In the last step, we compensate for the calculated volume of CO₂ per ton of paper by purchasing CO₂ certificates guaranteeing a CO₂ neutral product.
No, it won’t. About 50-75% of the CO₂ emissions of the print job fall on the paper. Therefore, if you buy climate-neutral paper now, you have already offset around 50-75% of the emissions. The remaining part can be covered by our partner ClimatePartner who would then deduct the emission of the paper from the total CO₂ emissions. The additional compensation will only be done for example for the part of the energy or your printer, but not the paper anymore.
The Product Carbon Footprint for paper is calculated with the “CEPI 10 Toes“ method – today we define it from “Cradle2Gate” (which means to the mill gate of Mondi Neusiedler).

Reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in line with science-based targets

  • – Reduce our Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 34% per ton of saleable production by 2025 and 72% by 2050 from the 2014 base year
  • – Reduce Scope 2 GHG emissions by 39% per MWh by 2025 and by 86% by 2050 from the 2014 base year​​​​​​​
  • – Set a science-based Scope 3 reduction target by 2025

Maintain zero deforestation in our wood supply, sourcing from healthy and resilient forests

  • – Maintain 100% FSCTM certification in our own forestry landholdings
  • – 100% responsibly sourced fibre with 75% FSC- or PEFCTM-certified fibre procured by 2025 and the remainder meeting the FSC Controlled Wood standard
  • – Implement leading forestry measures to ensure productive, healthy and resilient forests

Safeguard biodiversity and water resources in our operations and beyond

  • –​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​Conduct water stewardship and biodiversity assessments at our mills and forestry operations by 2025, and implement required actions to address the findings by 2030
