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”.”
