Mondi is the first manufacturer to offer a comprehensive range of uncoated fine papers from European paper mills with Cradle to Cradle certification

- The comprehensive range of uncoated fine papers from Austria, Slovakia and Russia has achieved the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Bronze certification level
- Cradle to Cradle Certified® is a globally recognised standard for safe and responsible products that mark the transition from a linear to a circular economy
- The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute recognises Mondi's contribution to the circular economy through products that have a positive impact on people and the environment

Mondi, a leading global packaging and paper manufacturer, has been awarded the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Bronze certification level for its uncoated fine papers from its mills in Austria, Slovakia and Russia. This makes Mondi the first supplier of such an extensive range of uncoated fine papers to receive Cradle to Cradle certification, which marks the transition from a linear to a circular economy. The range, which meets the high standards and specifications of this certification scheme, includes the well-known Color Copy and PERGRAPHICA® brands, NAUTILUS® recycled papers and a comprehensive office paper portfolio.
"We are very pleased to start the year with this product sustainability milestone. It underpins our commitment to circular solutions as part of Mondi's Action Plan 2030 - MAP2030," says Devan Naidoo, Marketing & Sales Director at Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper. "With regard to the sustainability of our uncoated fine papers, Mondi has been a leader and often a pioneer for many years. In 2005, for example, Color Copy became the world's first FSCTM-certified colour laser paper. Thanks to the new Cradle to Cradle certification, we now offer a particularly wide range of environmentally friendly products. Our customers can thus contribute to the circular economy without having to accept compromises in quality or price."
Cradle to Cradle Certified® is a globally recognised standard for safe, responsible materials and products in the spirit of the circular economy. The holistic approach follows nature's principle of reusing raw materials within a cycle and avoiding waste. The Cradle to Cradle certification is awarded by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, which promotes the circular economy. The certificate is awarded to products that have a positive impact on people and the environment. Under the Cradle to Cradle programme, sustainability is assessed in five categories: Material Health, Recycling, Air Pollution Control and Climate Protection, Responsible Use of Water and Soil, and Social Responsibility. Mondi's range of uncoated fine papers was assessed in all five categories and assigned Gold to Bronze levels - resulting in a final Bronze certification level overall.
