Created to help investors identify how an organization’s activities and supply chains impact deforestation and link this forest footprint to their value, the FFD has the backing of investors, global NGOs and government. At the award launch in London on Feb. 9, 2010, Mondi and the other award recipients were recognized for taking a leading role in this important global initiative.

Uwe Foelster, Mondi’s Group Head of Sustainable Development commented “Mondi was up against some of the largest global forestry companies and we are proud to have been recognized as a leader in sustainable development in our industry. We are committed to certifying of all our owned and managed forests to FSC standards and have introduced standards and systems to ensure that we can trace the origins of our procured wood, virgin fiber and biomass. We also support the development of global methodologies for identifying and protecting High Conservation Value (HCV) areas and have set aside HCV Forests in Komi, Russia and Ecological Networks in our South African plantations”.”
