Responsible Fiber Sourcing
Our commitment on no deforestation aligns with the CGF’s goal to achieve zero net deforestation by 2020, mobilising resources through individual member company initiatives and collaborative partnerships with governments and NGOs.
We aim to use the most efficient technologies and apply best practices to further optimise (sic) energy.
Our 2030 ambition is to go for zero environmental impact in our operations. Efficiency in our manufacturing is critical to achieving our ambition. Our life-cycle assessments (LCAs) inform us on how much energy we use in the manufacturing of our products. It is at this stage of the value chain that we can do the most to directly manage and improve our energy performance, and we take every opportunity to do so.
