Mondi´s Austrian mill goes carbon neutral

Mondi’s uncoated fine paper mill in Neusiedler, Austria, has extended its offering of CO2-neutral paper

Mondi’s uncoated fine paper mill in Neusiedler, Austria, has extended its offering of CO2-neutral paper to almost all premium paper brands.

The offering includes Pergraphica, Mondi´s premium paper brand for creative design, publishing, and luxury packaging applications. By offering this range as CO2 neutral, Mondi meets the growing demand of customers such as agencies, designers, and brand owners for sustainable and CO2 neutral printing, publishing and packaging products.

The paper´s CO2 emissions were calculated and offset with the support of ClimatePartner and are therefore classified as CO2 neutral. Mondi’s calculations are based on recognized industry standards such as CEPI´s Carbon Footprint Framework for paper and board products. 

To offset all calculated CO2 emissions, Mondi supports the Pesqueiro hydropower plant on the Jaguariaríva River in south Brazil – an internationally recognized carbon offset project. According to ClimatePartner´s calculations, for a printed and converted book, the paper represents 50-75 percent of CO2 emissions. 

‘Sustainability is at the heart of our strategy, and we have a long tradition in offering sustainable papers,’ said Gunilla Saltin, CEO of uncoated fine paper at Mondi. ‘In addition to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions in line with science-based targets as part of our ten-year Mondi Action Plan, MAP2030, we are pleased to be able to support our customers on their sustainability journey by offering CO2 neutral paper and premium packaging. Based on the feedback of our customers, we expect to see a strong pick up of our extended CO2 neutral portfolio.’
